Hey guys looking at a different boat this winter. I’m wanting opinions on differences between lowrance humminbird and Garmin. I will tell you I don’t know how to use electronics the best but want to be much better. Which company is the most user friendly? Thanks

MegaLive took things over? Ahhhh no, it is currently ranked the worst out of the three bigs producing it.

Turn on the internet and watch some reviews, it is still well behind the others, but may eventually get there. The best part about it is the brains are in the ducer rather than needing a black box.

Humminbird combo, ice/boat with mega live. Mega live has taken over everything. The combo can be used in boat or ice fishing. Mega live means drilling very few holes ice fishing. In boat either see fish or move.

I have a Garmin Echomap 126sv Ultra with livescope, easy to use and Garmin has great customer support. Will definitely put you on fish

I run both Garmin Striker7 SV and a Lowrance 7 HDS. Hands down Garmin is the EASY ONE.

Garmin  easy to use and understand.. Add that with LiveScope, and you have a great system, that will put you on fish.  GUARANTEED.

Humminbird helix real easy to use compatibility with Minn kota trolling motors and lakemaster chip s and can be used for ice fishing if it's a 9 or smaller. I mounted mine myself pretty easy.
