I'm thinking of buying an inexpensive sonar/GPS combo. Right now I'm looking at the Lowrance LMS 330c. Does anyone have any experience with this model, or have any suggestions on sonar/GPS? Is it better to have two dedicated units, one sonar, one GPS?

Also, is the color screen worth the price? I'm open to all opinions.

I just have a cheaper Piranha fish finder that the wife bought me so I had to install it. I think that it cost about $100. It works okay but at high speeds it gets all messed up and takes awhile to settle back down and give me a reading. It does show the fish when they come into view. There are 3 settings for fish size. But, even when it shows that the fish are there they don't bite. haha

One of my buddies has the 330c unit in his boat, it works great. I think the color is worth the price. I have the 15MT in my boat and there is a world of difference. Would you rather have a black and white TV or a colored one? This is how much difference there is.

Color is definately the way to go. I have a Garmin 172c chartplotter and a Sci-tek color fishfinder. Haveing two things to put in each time is a bit of a challange but well worth it. My fish finder also goes alein on me at high speeds and goes into a search mode. I think that maybe I have the transducer mounted just a bit too high and am getting alot of turbulence because of it so maybe i will use the slight sdjustment the mount gives you to lower the centerline a bit and see if that works. As for the color GPS, if you are looking at a chartplotter the color gives much better representation of the contours, bouys, land, marshed etc. The only wat to go......
