Lowrance iFINDER Expedition C GPS Receiver
5 May 2010
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 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.
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 But, we use it for traveling & geocaching & although it's off a little now & then, & the map software/roads are WAY out of date for "latest edition"...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: See my review for this receiver under Lowrance ifinder Expedition C Plus, which is the same receiver with the 6 MapCreate CDs and card reader included. The Plus package is a very good deal if you're interested in having detailed topographic map information on your receiver. The non-Plus unit just comes with basic low detail built-in map that's not too useful.
Summary: After reading about GPS receivers in Outdoor Photography magazine (March 2006 issue) and doing a lot of research, I thought at first I wanted a Brunton MNS because it uses new USGS type topo maps. It turned out though that Lowrance makes the Brunton model which is obvious when you see that it's almost identical to the Lowrance iFinder Expedition C except the Lowrance has a color screen and is cheaper.
