I have the carbon.  Much faster than gen 3.  Screen is great also.   When speaking with product reps, the 3d module was never intended for deep saltwater.   Now the carbon has been discontinued after 1 year and HDS live is the future.  Furuno makes a legit 3d setup but you will be spending big boat bucks.

Do you work for Lowerance...lol
Don’t fall for what theses sales rep tell you they just want you to keep upgrading...

I have been using my Gen 3 with no issues.. I have 3D structure scan, a p66 transducer, 3G radar, auto pilot, full Nema 2000 to my engine, two point 1gps and have not notice any lag, as I never have the need to run everything the same time.




Are you telling me that in that Nano second speed difference you are able to catch more fish because you have a faster CPU... :stirthepot: you are not comparing a Texas Instrument 8080 to a quad core processor...


Guys when you buy a fish finder keep it for 3 to 4 years then upgrade... every year I call out these reps on this load of performance bs... every year there is some new ground breaking technology..

Next time they say that this model is more superior,  ask them if they can guarantee you will catch more fish than the lower model. :fishing:

I've got a MOB+ that still needs to be installed.  One of my many winter electrical upgrade projects.   As others have mentioned, I won't be relying on it alone to save my bacon in the cold waters I fish, but I don't see it hurting my chances along with a PLB and hand held radio (with beacon and DSC) on my PFD and a dive ladder.   Knowing I probably couldn't swim back to my skip top (aka "sail top) in the slightest of breezes, I'll have to take some solace knowing the MOB+ will aid in my body's recovery better than if the boat was allowed to motor off for who knows how long, which happened to a crabber last year.  The other reason I decided to add it was to make the wife feel more comfortable with me fishing solo or with the dog.  She hasn't told me which one of us she's more concerned about, but then I haven't told her about the shortcomings of this system either. 
Just stay on board and stay safe, mates.  ;)

The “recyclables” have historically been shipped to China where they dispose of it as they please.

We need to figure out what to do with all the plastic. China doesn’t want it anymore.

Somebody please melt it down and make tackle boxes or something.

....and those damn Mylar balloons.  :berry:  Ban Them !!!


The mylar balloon season is just 4 months away :facepalm:

Good points, Kimbrey. Also, it seems like there are two potential situations that may arise:

- boating alone and needing rescue by CG or other agency
- MOB when with others

In the first case a PLB seems to be the best bet and at $300 for an ACR unit worth it if you fish alone offshore.

But what about when you are on a bigger boat with others and may go overboard unnoticed? In that situation it seems like the CrewWatcher from Weems & Plath would be better because they could execute an immediate rescue.

Does that make sense?

I have to thank Fisherdv for that location, I saw his and copied it.
It's completely out of the way, easy to see and reach, plus having less clutter is a bonus.

Yat,

The real culprit is the goods moving from China to the United States. Think of the 100’s of thousands of containers full of toys, car parts, etc. moving from China to the U.S. making the United States heavier and China lighter., which causes the Earth to wobble out of balance, thus changing the weather pattern.
