There are so many exceptional fishfinders out on the market today that it makes your job as a consumer easier to get the one that best suits your needs. There are a variety of models with different options, designs, and most importantly prices for you to choose from. If you are in the market for a fishfinder for your boat then you will want to consider two of the top brands, Humminbird and Lowrance. Each of these companies have multiple model types, but today I want to compare the Humminbird DI fishfinders with Lowrance DSI fishfinders because of their comparable features.
The HDS-5 is one of the most popular Lowrance fishfinder/GPS models and reviews are very good with over 74% of all fishermen who own this model rating it as 4 stars or better (out of 5).

Lowrance fishfinders provide fishermen, pleasure boaters and anyone else with an interest in learning more about what is beneath their boat the ability to do so. In some cases, having a fishfinder is a necessity, since they can help boaters avoid stumps, rocks and other objects that could damage their boats. But many people use Lowrance fishfinders for the sole purpose of finding fish. They want to know how deep the water is, what the bottom looks like and what kind of vegetation or other objects are on the bottom. The following will teach you how to read a Lowrance fishfinder so you can identify those features.
