Yeah it made me feel really old, and dream of the days fishing was simple. you put a minnow on a hook with a sinker below it and tried to catch a perch. No bites after a while you determined there were no fish around you pulled up your anchor and moved to another spot.

Days of old you didn't need a fish finder. You went to your normal spot and caught some fish. And you spot near by and not 5 miles out in the lake.

Will do. Btw, this unit is 699 at Erie tracker with Canada lakes map card.

Got out on the water for a short pre fishing test run. Unit seems to be pretty good, but will def have to watch some videos to figure out the best settings. Being a ex-humminbird guy it will take a while to get used to the different way to navigate through the system, but it doesn’t appear to be difficult just different.

I'm with the low tech people here...if I have to rely on all this technology to be able to consistently catch fish...may as well just open a captain highliner box....I like the adventures of figuring it out myself....anyone can push an on button..punch in a couple numbers and catch a fish.....its way more fun exploring....and learning along the way....be it conditional...structural...weather related....seasonal....throwing my patterns over the years on whatever species I target....remember the days when your depth finder was a jug someone tied to the rock you dont want to hit...lol

Thanks for reporting back. I’d be in the same boat as you coming from humminbird.  Still trying to make a decision but may not happen this year. I’ll likely keep using my old Bird. 
 

To each their own. I’ll type my numbers in, catch my fish and be home with a cold one In my hand before you’ll have a fish on the bank.  I can’t get out nearly as much anymore with a young family so I like to get right to the point when I can actually get out.  I do still love adventure though.
