Default Portable gps/sounder

I decided to join a boat club for a year. Don't have time to maintain a boat or place to store it. The boats are nice, have simple depth sound era, but, I want gps and better fish finding equipment. Does anyone make a portable unit to use in this type of a situation.

I was going to say the same thing as tainted. We carry both the 386CI portable and the portable transducer.

The option that has the most "big screen" capabilities at a really low price is the Vexilar Sonar-Phone units. They teamed up with Navionics and now you can use Vexilar's portable sonar with Navionic's mapping and GPS capabilities from your smartphone or tablet. It's pretty sweet technology, and very inexpensive for what you get.

Ditto what SonarB said. Pairing a SonarPhone unit with an iPad running the Navionics app works REALLY well.

I'd also invest in a LifeProof cover and a LifeJacket float and you've got an almost indestructable system.
