I have a 125 and have had no problems with it. It's a back up now as I got the 111HD from Boaters World at the great price they had late in 2006.
Can't comment on the 500c though.

Have FishElite 500C ( I belive the fish find is the same) worked great until today ( can't shut off) -- good for a small boat-- I purchased a chip ie premium east-- If I was going to do again would get one that was preloaded

Check the specs .......... Lowrance owns Eagle and usually the Lowrance machines have more power and a little more high end than Eagle .......... I've owned both and both are good but I personnally would usually choose Lowrance over Eagle.
