I think it's more user freindly than Garmin, my dad wanted me to set up his Garmin and program it and I had to read the manual twice.
I may just be used to Lowrance, but they do work great! Lowrance Expedition C only has 1000 waypoint memory. Other brands have 12 parallel channel, this Lowrance has 16 parallel channels for easier/faster satellite acquiring plus WAAS for more acurate positioning.
Good luck on the purchase.
+1 for the lowrance !!!!!
I have had several different ones in the past and my main complaint was they were
not very user frendly.
Then I bough the lowrance and love it.Simple to use,good software. and extreamly
accurate with good battery life.
Last year I hunted Elk in a place I had never been and before I arrived I programed
in some way points of places I wanted to hunt according to the topo maps and in
the dark went strait to it.( I found a windmill and tank on the satellite image an
crossed it with the topo pluged in the waypoint and just followed it to the tank.
After hunting I returned to camp that was 4 1/2 miles from the tank with no problems
and noticed that the GPS could differentiate from one side of the trail to the other
( About 3 feet).
I was impressed
