    Either way you will have an awesome depth finder!!! I think hummingbird is going to come out with the down scan add on soon and i heard that they are going to make the fish show up as red speckles insted of white so they will show up clearer and be easier to depict. I think if you wait one more year they will really have these things fine tuned to be much more user friendly. But then again they could probably be updated through online apps, who knows, but i think the depthfinder war is on, i know if i had the money i would buy one now???!!!

    Morris that is a good idea for a young man like you. But I am probably older and more wore out than the cougars. So I wouldnt last long and I would have to pay them:smile2::smile2::smile2:. I am going to have to figure out how to afford one of the hummingbirds or lawrance's. Man that would be nice.

    I'm still using my X-17 I got 5 years ago. It still finds fish really good. By the way, just because you can find them, don't mean you can catch them. :wink: LOL

    Humminbird will have down-imaging this month or January (can't recall). You will get it via a software download, no equipment to buy.

    I am intrigued by the Lowrance units but there have been some quality control issues with the flimsy front bezel and water-intrusion on some units.

    I already have the 1197 so it would cost too much for me to play with the HDS 10.

    I'd run both but don't have the dashboard room and the freqs would interfere with each other.

    Two 10 inch screens would be COOL though.:eek:oooh:

    It will be interesting to see the reports on the Lawrance model. I know there will be a lot of coparing these two units against each other. I have been in boats with the hummingbird. Looking forward to seeing one to the Lawarance units. Both make good products.

    Lowrance has fixed the problems the unit had when they first came out, some units had a bad seel, causing water damage, but since then they have fixed the problem. If you buy one with updated software you are ok! Some places know the good ones and the bad ones others do not, not all stores have taken the bad ones off the shelf!! Beware of buying on ebay for a while to reduce the risk of getting one of the bad ones until they all have a chance to get out of the system!! But lowrance has extended the warrenty on the hds models just encase you get one!!! I would feel free to buy with confidence! My buddy that sells these units said lowrance is providing excellent coustomer service with these if you did happen to get one of the unit from when they were first realeased!:smile2:

    You dont need one of these buddy, your boat is already probably one of the most awesome boats any catfisherman could ever want!!!!!! I guess you could use the other one as a tv, or as a radar unit!!!:smile2::tounge_out::smile2: Man i could only imagin the amount of girls i could pick up in that thing if you would let me set in it while you pulled me through the Mcdonalds drive through. Lets put it this way if i had it I would take my date to the DRIVE IN and we would watch the movie while setting/ laying in the boat!!!!!:tounge_out::tounge_out::smile2::smile2::roll_eyes: Can I barrow it!!!!:big_smile::smile2:
