I really want to get into the GPS for fishing. The big draw for me is to be able to use lake map chips so I can put myself on a spot faster. I already have an decent LCD finder. Can you run handheld GPS's with lake chips? My thought is that it would be cheaper, and convienent to have a dedicated screen to lake map. Please provide spacific examples of gear, and suggestions about how to fine. I don't mind buying used to save money.
I also use the lowrance H2Oc with the lakemaster MN chip, and love it. Right now since it's the end of the season you can find the H2O or H2OC(color)for around 160-180 new because most places close them out. I got mine at cabelas online three weeks ago The only real difference is the color uses batterys faster then the black and white. You'll have to look around to find a good deal though. The only thing i dont like is that it takes regular batterys, A re-chargable would be nice.
