Summary: I bought a new Lund 1775 Impact boat equipped with a Minn Kota Terrova Ipilot 80(US2 transducer), Humminbird 385ci DI and 788ci DI HD sonar units and have experienced display and performance issues with the equipment configuration. I have also incurred considerable expenses to fix the issues. I had the Lund dealer install the trolling motor and sonar units The 385 unit connected to the trolling motor US2 transducer didn't display an accurate depth reading.
Summary: I had Diamondback Airboats put a new unit on my new Airboat and it worked great, simple and easy to use. After going out 5or6 time it started saying on the screen no GPS signal. I looked for the card and took the little cover off,no card, so I thought someone had stolen my card.Dummy me! I found out they didn't come with a card but it was after I ordered one for 144 bucks. I called coustermer service and the lady I talked to was like talking to a stump.
Summary: Great GPS / Depth finder. Does everything I need it to do. you will have to purchase the maps to load on it , but depending how many states fish in, you can save money by purchasing just your state.
Summary: do i need a bigger screen? do i need a 200/50 dept finder? should i buy a more expensive brand. will the learning curve be to steep? the answer is no! i love this thing! it fits right on my dash, dosn't block my view, and works great! what more do you need.
