Summary: My unit quit working after four years. I called lowrance about getting it fixed but they wanted 150 bucks so I decided I didn't want to do anything at that time. One year later I decided to have it fixed and Lowarance told me to throw the unit away because of their five year deal. They said they don't make parts for my hunt c ifinder anymore. They said i could send them some money to have it looked at but they said they do not make parts for my unit.
Summary: My iFinder worked great for three years until stopped it locating satellites. I went to test it before a outing and it could not locate any satellites. I have taken great care of my GPS, always careful w/ it and never dropping it. Called customer service and they want $149 flat fee to fix it plus $12.50 for shipping. Hopefully they have or will make there new GPS's last longer.
Summary: I previously had an iFinder H20 GPS receiver. I was very pleased with the performance and features, until it was stolen from my car. Looking to replace it, I found that the Expedition C shared most of the features of the H20 and I found that it was generally being listed for less money. (The unit I bought came with a Navionic's chip installed). I just came back from a 2 day saltwater fishing trip and the unit worked flawlessly.
Summary: I love the color screen in a handheld model. I decided to buy it because you can't get these styles anymore because they don't make them. The new models take different map chips and I wanted something that could still use the older style chips like I have.
Very good for 3 years - then expensive paperweight

Summary: Bottom line: Steer clear if you expect a piece of equipment that lasts more than three years. I'd have given this a four-star rating up until a month ago. That's when it passed its third anniversary of use. And stopped finding its location. It'll operate absolutely normally in every regard; displaying maps, finding satellites and positioning them in the sky; compass works; barometer works; in short it will do everything except its primary function.
Summary: The Lowrance iFINDER Expedition C Car GPS Receiver delivers solid GPS performance at a reasonable price, and it offers a few cool entertainment features normally found in more expensive models.
Summary: The Lowrance iFinder Expedition C is an awesome unit, I am glad I bought it last year. However, it does have some minor issues that have downgraded it from five stars to four. Minor Issues are as follows: 1) Get a Bundle that includes the software, the card reader, and at least one card, or buy the Software and card reader and cards. It comes with maps pre-installed, but they lack detail that makes it useful for everyday use.
