    Can some one tell me what the difference is between the two and witch unit is the best? And also, Is the antenna built in the unit?
    Sorry if this has already been discussed and thanks for your help.

    Like Buck said: http://www.lowrance.com/marine/default.asp and you can read the specs. Both are good units, but the 17 has twice the power of the 480, more resolution, and a larger screen. I think both have external gps. You can get dual frequency with them also, but you probably don't need that.

    Never mind cabelas are sold out of the17m. I knew I should have ordered one last week. 499.00 and free shipping they didn't last long.
    Maybe for the best, I Don't know about buying something that has been discontinued. :sad2:
