Lowrance recently announced their new Outboard Pilot system which will be available in the Fall of 2014. You can preorder yours from Radioworld here for hydraulic steering or here for cable steering applications.
Simrad has just dropped the price of all their NSS touch screen units. In addition to that there are also mail in rebates on them from Simrad in the range of $150-200 depending on the model which are on until April 6th 2014.
If you haven’t had a chance to take a look at these units you owe it to yourself to check them out. Many people don’t know that Navico who owns Lowrance also own Simrad so all the features like Broadband Sounder, StructureScan, SonicHub, etc are available on the Simrad units. The autopilot integration on the Simrad is second to none so for serious trollers these units are the ones to look at. My favorite feature of the NSS units is the roto knob on the keypad which lets you move through the menu and make selections extremely quick if you choose not to use the touch screen.
Earlier in the year we worked closely with Scott Walcott from West Lake Willows resort in Picton, ON as he was outfitting his boat with electronics. Scott operates a charter boat service focusing on walleye in the Bay of Quinte and eastern Lake Ontario. We assisted him in the selection of marine electronics for his new boat he was taking delivery of in the fall.
Take a look at this video Scott made doing a quick walk through of his electronics setup.
As you can see this boat is loaded with the latest in marine electronics technology. If you are interested in a day of fishing with Scott aboard the his 26′ Wooldridge Pilot house you can contact him through his website at www.westlakewillows.com
