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.
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: Nice color display and functionality. Had a hard time with acquiring signal while in central/southern Alaska if not outdoors with fairly decent clear path to sky. Was better in the Skagway and Ketchikan area. Probably could expect this from most devices... In the lower 48, was very good indoors and in the car. Device is pretty decent to use. I hate an annoying popup on powerup that warns not to use for navigation ?! Maybe someone tried to sue them ?
Summary: Not an expert on GPS by ANY means... as this is our first. But, we use it for traveling & geocaching & although it's off a little now & then, & the map software/roads are WAY out of date for "latest edition"... overall, we are satisfied with the unit. Had devil of a time trying to get the program & card reader to work with Vista (*&#^*&%#*&@%$*&^), but their customer service (who was also confused by the prob) did manage to get us lined out & running fine in a reasonable...
Summary: This is my second Lowrance unit, this one specifically bought for Geocaching. I've had no issues with it. One thing I would recommend is some kind of screen protector, as it is a glossy plastic and any scratches show up, it's cheap insurance for keeping it looking new.
Battery life is good, used it on a all day Kayaking trip keeping a tracklog, backlight off when I wasn't looking at it. Still has over 50% left after 6 hours of constant use.
Summary: I have two friends that have the expedition c. This is why I bought mine. I use it for fishing and hunting. Puts me right on the spot I want to be. I would recommend this unit highly. I have been looking for this unit for a long time, and found the best price on Amazon.com.
