  • Summary: lake greenwood chart, sc looks like a ROAD map ! that's not what I thought I was getting when I purchased the inland lake software ! it shows the bottom right under the boat very well, but not where I want to go. does anybody know where I can find a unit with lake greenwood bottom detail ? other than this, I like the unit.

as good as promised

  • Summary: the product does what it claims to the mapping is excellant with many icons for personal spots and it brought us back to within 3 ft of the center of the channel on our return trip the fish finder works in a little as 5 ft of water so far but i havent been deeper than 90 ft so far but it seems to be just fine out there also and the tide tables, and moon phases is a nice extra.

Review 430s

  • Summary: I explore back waters here in Florida and this model is really working well on keeping me posted as to where I am. It provides details that I did not expect that were useful. I did not have a speedometer before and with the 430s I trimed the boat engine to gain 5 mph.

Works well but expected more for the money.

We bought it for all the inland lakes in Michigan and it has details on all the ones that we boat on. However, we are going to have to pay an additional $130 for Lake St. Clair!

Be leary of pre-loaded lake details!!

  • Summary: I specifically purchased this marine GPS so I wouldn't have to buy any additional maps. I live on Lake Murray, SC and don't plan on taking my boat to any other lakes or rivers. I choose the 430S because it came pre-loaded with inland lakes with contour lines. After instaling the GPS and trasducer I discovered it showed the same level of detail as the Lawrance GPS that was a hundred dollars less.
