Vegas better hurry up! 200 rebate ends tomorrow on the scope.
I got the ice package last April. This one came with 12 amp battery. It runs 6-7 hours on boat. You need to get the 18 amp one.
I started making a pole for transducer so spot lock still worked. That did not work that well for motor trolling. Now have the garmin mount for trolling motor. That works better as you can point motor to aim view.
We set range 40-50 feet and it is amazing to watch fish scatter as boat comes through! The real time view is great. We use side view transducer and the scope to follow breaks. Worth the money!
Have been on ice with it. Can find fish very easy. The problem is on clear ice is they move on you! Now that we have a little snow things have changed. Very easy to watch buddy 20 feet away! Stumps are easy to find. Just killing fish!
Like to keep on forward view and scan around. Need to learn settings as you cannot set and forget!
The you tube stuff is a good starting point.
You have missed best price. Garmin closed out GPS Map units a month ago, 400 off.
Google still has some deals, Amazon is not way to go! The motor mounts can be had for around 75, Garmin wants 100. The ice fishing model has nice wiring harness and base for black box. Like I started with get the 18 amp battery, cuts weight down to half. Amped Outdoors is where I got mine. 150 with charger.
