What Is The Best Fish Finder

GPS Fish Finder

 

WHAT IS THE BEST FISH FINDER FOR 2019?

 

The following is my Fish Finder Reviews for 2019.  I’m just reviewing what I consider are the top two Fish Finders with GPS.

 

Fish finders are one of those must-have gadgets especially if you’re entering a Fishing Tournament.

 

Be honest now.  When you’re out with a bunch of friends, don’t you want to be the one that catches the most fish?  Heck, some people buy them just to show off their new toy to their friends.

 

My pick for the BEST FISHFINDER WITH GPS for 2019 are:

1. Humminbird Helix 10 DI GPS

2. Lowrance Elite 7 Touch Combo

HUMMINBIRD 409970-1 HELIX 10 DI FISH FINDER GPS REVIEWS

 

This Humminbird fishfinder has a pretty impressive widescreen and a bright LED backlit display (10.1 inch color TFT).  The images are even crystal-clear for viewing in harsh sunlight.  Along with that, it has the Humminbird legendary fish finding pedigree & Auto Chart Live.  What I liked was its cable management that makes it possible for you to connect all your networking cables at once.  Also, the Hummingbird Fish Locators have an integrated frame surrounded by an ultra slim bezel which minimizes the space you need.  The transducer is included so you don’t have to purchase one separately.

  Easy to install (just have to watch the videos)
  They were impressed with the clarity of the Lowrance Fish Finder under bright light conditions
  Many people commented on the crisp graphics and colors

 

ConsNEGATIVE CONSUMER REVIEWS – Lowrance Elite 7

Every product on the market gets some negative reviews. It’s a good idea to read them over. There could be something you’d want included in the product you’re planning to buy.

 

  You can’t use split screen with side and down scan
  You occasionally loose satellite reception for about 30 seconds and then it recovers on its own
  The instruction manual on how to operate the fish finder should be a lot more detailed
