    According to C-net, there are two reviews... One person said the unit malfunctioned and the other said it was hard to use. But that is a good price.

    Sounds like a good price Randy, but if you are wanting one solely for what I think you are... For nighttime running in the fog on the river. Save your money and buy a better depthfinder with the GPS equipped. You will get more use out of one unit than the two! Thats what I did. If you are wanting it for every other use, then I would buy it for that price. Goodluck either way bro....rollo

    cnet is a website that reviews things... .primarily electronics. I like to use it before I upgrade my cell phone each time.... Sometimes i don't pay attention to the cnet review and look closer at the user review.

    Just my experience, but you cant go wrong with Lowrance...The new HD models are hitting the market now, which should drop the price down a bunch. To get a good look at the bottom I would recommend a nice color graph with 480x480 pixels. They arent gonna be cheap, but worth every penny. I tell you what though I had an eagle fish mark 320 black and white 150$ graph, and it did awesome for finding structure and fish. A color graph with GPS may run you upwards of 500$ or more, or less if you can find the right place. I know a couple of guys now that have a seperate GPS, handheld one like you described and it works really great for them marking spots on the river. Good luck bud.:wink:
