Check out the line of chartplotters offered by Humminbird. While Humminbird specializes in fishfinders and most of their products are geared toward fisherman, their chartplotters are very well designed, have a great user interface, and give you way more bang for your buck compared to Garmin and Lowrance. They are able to read Navionics SD cards as well. The nice part about their chartplotters is the integrated depth
I have used their products for years and have found them to be extremely reliable. Their customer support is great as well. The phone
is always answered quickly, the staff is knowledgeable and not afraid to think outside the box, they have excellent turnaround times for repairs
, and have well written operation manuals
. I am planning on purchasing
their digital radar next year, which interfaces with my chartplotter
I would recommend them without hesitation. You will be paying less for a product of equal quality and performance as its Garmin or Lowrance counterpart.
