    What you might do is ask these questions on the main crappie forum under electronics and you will get better response to your question. I am partial to Lowrance but have used Hummingbird many years ago. All these newer fish finders are pretty much spot on and do their thing. I like the HD images they give you. I think the main weakness of all of them is their mapping software of the smaller lakes is lacking as no lake maps will cover every lake where you fish.

    I just put a Humminbird Helix 7 on the front of the boat and am very happy with it. Clarity is outstanding. I agree with Cevans on the mapping for the state of Indiana. My recommendation is to buy as much as you can afford. Good luck.

    I still use and carry paper maps of the lakes I fish. If I can't buy or find them, I print them off USGS topo mapping software that I have from Delorme that shows creek channels and contours of the bottoms. I find it still better for structure fishing to rely on. I guess, call me old school. But it gets the job done.
