I like the functionality and everything but the bracket. It shakes the unit because it’s plastic on small waves. Reached out to Lowrance (Navico) and they told me it’s the only one they have. So I guess I am going to have to figure out something when I actually get into waves.

A little disappointing
Maps have NO water depths when you go to charts, only blue indicating water! Why not have NOAA charts? Manual not very helpful for setting items up - limited details.

I’ve always ran Lowrance units on my boats! These new live units really take it to another level! They have unmatched speed and clarity! Very very user friendly units!
