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

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! and if you want you can use it for ice fishing with the Ice transducer

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.

Gtuna... Two seasons out of a hook unit? I had one also that lasted two seasons also... Customer service jerked me around for 6 weeks then told me out of warranty... Never again will I buy Lowrance products...

I went to Garmin 93sv UHD... Awesome unit... Ran a 73 panoptix last ice season... Also awesome..

Picture from my Hook2 triple shiz unit..

Been looking at getting a Hummingbird Helix 7, I've had birds in the past with good luck. I see Cabelas has a Raymarine for about the same price because they have them on clearance ($450 off) . I watched a couple  YouTube vids on it and it seems like a nice locator with features I want,  anyone have experience with Raymarine?  Thanks.
