Lowrance vs Garmin fishfinder

Lowrance vs Garmin fishfinder MAS East Midlands

Garmin is one of the most popular fish finder companies on the market. In many aspects, she is considered the best in her field. A unique feature of Garmin brand products is the high fidelity of images: they come without any distortion due to the improvement of echolocation technology. Many have GPS and a water temperature sensor. Products stand out with a good viewing angle and high sensitivity.

LUCKY FF1108-1

Portable fish finder with a cable length of seven and a half meters. Able to work at low temperatures - from minus twenty degrees Celsius. Compact model with a 2.2-inch screen. Powered by batteries. The disadvantages include the insufficient accuracy of the sensors: fish can be displayed even if it is absent - a frequency of two hundred kilohertz is not considered sufficient in all cases:

Didn't let me down the entire time I used it. Updated model with color screen. Very satisfied.

Fish finder with a 5-inch screen and a special program for creating maps. The presence of a Garmin CHIRP transducer and CHIRP ClearVü fish finder provides a very clear image and accurate target separation. The user sees the bottom topography, fish and other objects, which allows him to more accurately identify good fishing spots.

While the built-in GPS-receiver allows him to control his speed and mark the necessary points on the map - for example, a successful bite, the start and end points of the trip. Among the features of the model is a bright 5-inch screen, the picture on which is clearly visible even in bright sunlight, and 8000 sq. km of maps created using proprietary software from Garmin.

Benefits of using:

  • clear and bright 5-inch screen;
  • strength and water resistance of the case;
  • many settings;
  • moisture protection according to the IPX7 standard;
  • the ability to connect a sensor for lateral scanning.

List of the main cons of the fish finder:

  • powered only by 12V;
  • heavy weight, 0.5 kg.
