new sounder

Postby iansimo45 » Sun Feb 20, 2011 5:44 pm

I am in the market for a new gps/sounder combo.
I am looking at 3 types

lowrance hds5
or the raymarine A50D

I do a bit of outside fishing so i am looking at buying the navionic gold card for the lowrance if i go down that path.
Just wondering your thoughts on these units, and what are the maps like on the other combo units.

Hi there, I just bought the HDS 5 a few weeks ago, I did a lot of research and decided it was the best for me, I have had Lowrance and Humminbord over the past 15 years. I have only ever used Lorwance maps, and this one seams just as good as the ones I have had in the past.
Hope this helps
