Posted by cachekidds on Mar. 13 2004,6:44 pmDoes anybody know much about Lowrance iFinders?
I've heard some good things and I'm thinking about getting one.
Posted by schon on Mar. 19 2004,2:47 pmI got an iFinder for Christmas this year. It's a great little unit - there's a review of it on the < gpsnuts site >. I can attest that it does a remarkable job of maintaining a lock, without sacrificing accuracy.
It comes with a ton of on-board memory (for waypoints and routes), and the fact that it can be upgraded via SD cards is great (my digital camera also uses SD cards.) Transferring routes/waypoints to and from computer can be a little clumsy, as the only way to do it is with the SD card (which means removing the batteries.) but it's a minor inconvenience.
