Default If given another choice.....

For arguments sake, what would you choose?

Humminbird & iPilot Link or Lowrance HDS Touch & Standard iPilot???

One vote for iPilot Link.

Link of course! Touch the screen or touch a button, doesn't make any difference to your fishing.

HDS Touch of course! While the iLink is a nice added feature for the HB family, it's not an earth shattering new concept at all and is the same basic concept of another TM/Locator company that is now defunct. (The name of which slips my mind at the moment). 12 inch touch screen PLUS all the other features plus the wireless connection to an iPhone/Android/Tablet etc sounds way better for me!

The company that developed the Dr Depth software is working on a box that does exactly what the i-link does with a minn kota. You can set way points and track contours with a laptop and you won't have to rely on Lakemaster chips, which BTW don't cover lakes in my area.

And the company you were thinking of Hawker was Bottom Line

Actually I believe the company that tried it before was Pinpoint, they were purchased by Motorguide and the product died. It was a little different though, it used sonar instead of GPS and contours. With iPilot Link you can also use waypoints to navigate, using the Lakemaster chip is just another option that you have.
