as the title states I'm looking for some of the knowledgeable people that might give a little advice.
the model I'm looking at for my boat is the LMS-520C Sonar/GPS Chartplotter Combo, or for a little bigger screen the LCX-28C HD Sonar/GPS Chartplotter Combo from Lowrance.
anyone have experience using these in saltwater? Hoping for good maps for the GPS side and decent sonar capability. Or is 2400watts suffecient for 20-300' of salt water? I looked at some of the Garmin products but the cost difference for the units was just a little too much and the maps were about $300 a pop, or are they just that much better? (I do currenty use a HcX and love it for personal navigation..)
One last question, I was hoping the Lowrance units would work in the truck too, but didn't see much written anywhere on street maps for Alaska, anyone know if they are able to work double duty?
thanks in advance.
