Purchased a unit off ebay, $56 all up with postage from panatechnology, it did not turn up, security footage at the PO proves it, will purchase a unit from BCF, any recommendations for the kayak?

If budget is key. Even the entry level Garmin or lowrance units are great little affordable units. I have both. On different yaks. Garmin striker 4 dv. is on my primary yak. It’s got gps but no maps. I think it’s about $299 on special $250. But there’s a even cheaper model without downvu I don’t like it anyways. Around $199 i found it hard to find so must be popular.

My lowrance is an older budget model. No gps. But still does the job. I’m sure they have a gps model from memory it has maps and gps. Not sure if pricing can’t remember.

So if u go either way u will be pleased. I would go for a basic gps model. Knowing ur time speed distance and trail is useful and of course marking baitballs and fish.
