GPS / Chart Plotters

6 posts in this topic

Looking to add a GPS Chart plotter to 2016 246SSi, any recommendations on brands, models, mounting system/location, transducer types etc.  Always inland lakes and rivers, may occasionally fish so fish finder is optional, typically not ultra long distance trips

 

Thanks in advance

My 2012 has a Garmin 541 on it.  I added the inland lakes map last year, right after I bought the boat, and have been impressed with the level of detail in our small, local lake.  The 52/53/54/55cv series are the replacement model.  Screen's small (5"), but works for limited dash space.

I have had Garmin for years. About 4 different models and right now the 742. Great unit, fast and it even doubles as a remote to my Fusion sound systems. Great tech support!

I've been using my phone(Iphone CE) with Navionics on it. Works great in the Ozark's for finding your way home and around. I keep it a Seasucker phone mount and it has yet to be bounced out of it in the Ozark's. I keep it pluged into the dash lighter and Bluetooth the music. The ap costsabout 11 bucks.

I just got a Lowrance Hook-4 with US lakes from Fleet Farm for under 200 deer. I'll see how well it works later this week, installed it yesterday....
