Default Lowrance HDS Live 7" vs Simrad GO9'XSE????

Lowrance HDS Live 7" (Active 3 in 1 ducer & Nav +) vs Simrad GO9XSE (Total scan ducer & Nav +). Both are about the same price, $1,000. Currently I fish saltwater < 200ft, with a Lowrance Gen2. Which would you go with? or go something else?

Thanks for your help.

Unless they have updated the screen resolution on the go9, I’d pass.

Resolution difference on a 7" screen is minimal... On the water a target shows basically the same on most 7" screens.

Is the NSS EVO 9 $1000 better than the GO9XSE?

The evo 9 has dual CHIRP..so one can use a far wider range of transdcuers..and especially it can use the dual band ducers....best for going deep.

If only using a single band ducer..or only side and down scan..the Go9 will be fine.

and wiht Simrad we offer a 3 year warranty..with the Go 9 only 2 years.
