I am planning to buy my first GPS. I have been comparison shopping for a while and found a few sites that seem to be doing a good job with pricing and customer service. I am still confused and undecided as to what to buy with all the various options. The folks at getfeetwet.com (quite helpful) have suggested the Lowrance H20 or thier 3010c Bundle. I also saw that they had a factory refurbished Garmin 2006 and GMR unit for half the price. Any thoughts on these units? I like the price of the 2006 factory refurbished but I am not sure what I am giving up? Garmin gives 1 yr warranty on the refurb and looks like getfeetwet adds a 2nd yr to that. I was assured that they are as good as new. Has anybody purchased a Garmin Refurb?

I bought a new garmin legend c this december and I love it!! I do have one complaint though "my fishing hopspots map i purchased seems to be off a little bit." Not on all lakes but winnie and mille lacs for sure. My dad just ordered the H2O, I will let you know what he thinks when he starts playing!!

Hey NaVi2005,

Welcome to My Fishing Pals. Glad to have you aboard!

I got an H2O and have had no problems with it so far. Takes a while indoors to get a fix. Works great out in the boat. Don't have any maps as of yet, but should be adding a chip this summer.

Depending on what you will be using it for and what you want out of the unit, I would suggest the Lowrance I-Finder series I have the H2O with LakeMaster Mn chip and could not be happier.
