Did you order it from a Marine supply house?I ordered a Lowrance HDS5 Baja. I have yet to see it though. Issue with the shipping. It looks like it will fit nicely. Might have to make up a billet plate or something. As soon as I get it figured out I'll post up some pics. Prowlers been in the shop 3 weeks for LT that should have taken 3 days
I originally ordered mine from interceptmarine.com. for $439.00 The guy that owns the company is a great guy but he never got them in and the website showed shipping in a few day and it took months so I cancelled and paid a few bucks more from Fodrills Motorsports in Arizona. They stock them all of the time.Coolebuys.com or something like that. We'll see.
If you need it to track back to camp most units can do this for you. The HDS-5 will handle your needs but the other hand held units can do this as well. I need detailed onboard maps to find trails and mine shafts or small towns etc.. Maps are the priority for me. Let us know what you decide. Good luck.WE go to Moab at least once a year and tenn this year and maybe Co. Springs in Aug. need something to ge us back if lost.
The best price would be Interceptmarine.com They don't always stock them though and it could take months to get. I know Fodrills Motorsports in Arizona has them in stock but the price is a bit higher then online. A lot of the online marine stores sell them for less but never have them in stock. I have purchased from intercept before and they do a good job. Just be sure to phone in and talk to someone before you order to be sure they have them in stock. Don't let them play the back order game because you will never win that one. You will find the HDS-5 price range from $529.99 to $599.99 usually. Remember to add the item to the cart to see the actual price as they are not allowed to advertise the lower prices online.Not yet still not sure what i want but that one pic look good.Where is a good place to get the lowrance?
Being lost absolutely sucks and makes a great day of riding turn into just a good day. The strap is a custom one off 6 inch (HSB) or high strength bungee!Two comments, We went to windrock, tennessee last weekend , got lost for 7 hours. Nobody had a decent GPS. Second, Flyin 121. Where did you order the custom glovebox latch?lol. That is a weak spot on our machines.
I have the Magellan Explorist 500. This has been discontinued, but is replaced by the Explorist 500 LE ( a friend of mine has this version and has all the same capabilities ). The TOPO Map 3 has a lot of points of interest, etc). I have used mine along all of the western states on the memory in the unit. (Oregon, California and Nevada in detail). I have used it on motorcycle, Quad and AC as well as in the car on occasion. The detail is awesome showing mines, peaks, etc. It has proven very accurate as well.I want to mount a gps on the dash of my XTZ.What do you sugest?
