Default RE: What is the MOST dependable Sonar ?

I started running the birds in 2005 and have been very pleased.

Screens are very clear to read, with glasses or in direct sunlight.
Menue is very easy to operate and move around in.
Have run the 900 and 700 series. Si and regular sonar.
Have had no problems with any of the units.
Very easy to transfer waypoints from the Lowrance to bird.
The pre-set buttons on the 900 and 1100 series are great for screen selection as to what you want for quick viewing.
I really love the quick release mount.
The way that you hookup or unhook, you don't have to worry about any mis match on the nuts as in the other units.
The SI is something you really need to check out.
Customer service is great.

By the look of the posts on this thread, I am sure they are well aware of the problems, as it looks like everyone else in North America is. The big question is what are they going to do about it and how long is it going to take. I would love to have been at the ICAST show in Vegas this week to ask them that question, as I am sure every dealer across the country will be asking the same one.Depending on the reply my next question would be where is the Hummingbird booth?

I have a Lowrance, Garmin and Vexilar Edge. I keep trying to get my bro to take my Lowrance...then I can justify a new one for the arsenal.

Played with the new Humminbird's and they look real SWEET! My next will probably be a 'bird or a Garmin. The Lowrance has not failed me, it just takes more fiddling and don't really like the controls.
