Lowrance Ghost 360

For the upgrade cost of a 3-1 transducer nose cone, HDS or Elite FS unit and a software update looks like Lowrance added 360 imaging for FREE! LOL (just $4000 upfront)  :hmm:

Doing some research it doesn't look like a show stopper but it will be fun to play with. As long as you don't need to steer the boat using the TM.  (giggle) :facepalm:

If you already had the equipment it's a nice perc, another tool in the tool box!
You running a Ghost Mitz?  I like features of the Ghost better than the Ultrex but i run all Humminbird units.  Decisions  :hmm:

I know some people will be able to justify these kinds of upgrades. But for me, the endless slew of expenditures isn't justifiable. $2000 here, $1500 there. And then $4000 for something like this. Sorry, but not on my budget  :nope:

Not slamming the technology. Just not worth my money for the fishing that I do.

I thought about replacing my boat a few times over the last few years but I love the hull. Plus there is just  no way I could afford what I wanted so I decided to do some upgrades. The Ghost was one of them.

It is a really nice motor built like a tank and has a ton of Tech built into it.. While not for everyone I'm a wicked geek and love the features. Just hate the problems that come along with more "tech". Once or twice last year I had to deal with some wacky stuff.  :-\

Ditto! Tech is awesome when it works. But when it doesn't, it can make for some very big headaches  :facepalm:
