I got the Lowrance iFinder H20 and I love it! You can put map chips in it and there are alot of settings for differnt things, its alot like the Military versions (PLGR) Its a little bulky but has a wrist strap and can be opperated with one hand. They have black/white and colored screen models
You'll want that added memory for additional overlays and maps. You are very limited without it. If you ever go to Windrock in TN Dan has a great map that you can install, but you must have an "X" version. The non X versions do not have enough memory to support it.
Yeah it will keep track of your trails and draw a little map on the unit for you so you can see where you have been. and like the other guys were saying you can share maps and chips with other people with this GPS too. I also have a Garmin GPS 12, it came with my boat, its older but works ok for a speedo but loses satelites pretty easily, and eats batteries like crazy! :angry:
At the start of my last deployment I had the Magellan Explorist 100, it was a great little unit, never had problems with it, you get what you pay for with a $100 unit but it did everything I wanted it to at the time and had the back tracking feature. Then it got wedged under our radio mount in our humvee and the screen shattered bang your head so I threw it away. lol
Then while I was working with a counter intel/counter terrorism/counter insurgency specialty team north of Baghdad, they gave me the Garmin Geko :turd: , it was an alright little gps, no frills, it was cheap and you could tell. Our frequency blocking and jamming devices would not allow that thing to work, so we would turn them off or get out of the truck to use it, but it was little and fit in your pocket easily.
Then when their funding came through they got the Garmin GPS V and that thing was awesome, no map chips, but it always had a signal, it was a little challenging to opperate and was sometimes tough with one hand. It also has an awkward shape, but overall it was a good unit.
So far my Lowrance has been the best, as far as functionality, it always has a signal, has map chips you can change out, fits in your hand alright and is water/weather proof, so far has been very rugged and has survived my whole deployment.
I would go with the Garmin 60 Series. I have had mine now for over three years and it works great. It made it thru a tour in Afghanistan with alot of abuse and it is still working strong. I use it everytime I go out riding.
I have a 08 Arctic Cat 700efi that will not idle or accelerate . I am not getting any codes and the tps is in the center. I have replaced plug and it does not make any difference. If i disconnect the MAP sensor hose it will run. I replaced the the MAP sensor but did not help. Please help
Just replaced flywheel and stator with rm stator kit...still no spark at plug. Can a voltage check be done on stator to see if it is producing current? If so, how and what kind of power should I expect? Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks
Coolant question....Having a problem with it wanting to die after some fairly heavy usage like pulling a chain drag. I doesnt do it when just driving around the ranch normally. I found out the coolant has not been changed since it was new in 05. Although the temp light has never come on could...
