My wife is asking me for Christmas hints and I figured since she is asking I would give her some. Wanting to get some ideas from people who have used them if you would mind giving me some opinions. I prefer to get Garmin. Thanks
I have the Garmin 498 GPS/FF combo with internal antenna works great. saved a pile of money and it came loaded with stuff from www.gpsdiscount.com check them out. I saved probably $150 vs Bass Pro or Boaters world.
The 498 is a combo unit. I have one on my skiff and it works fine for that, but it is not a unit that you want to go bottom dropping with. [to much menu jumping.]
I also use that 498 on the Crows nest of my Mako. It has the internal antenna, so it makes swapping it a snap. When on the Crow Nest there is no X-ducer hooked to it. It's just used for navigation for from the Crows Nest.
there is a 2006C at the lower helm for doing most of the real navigation.
