Simrad Go-9 or Lowrance Elite Ti 9"
« on: January 21, 2021, 09:13:32 am »
Is anyone using the Simrad Go-9 and what pros and cons can you share. Also anyone using the Lowrance Elite Ti 9"?
I remove the unit from my boat after each day so for that reason I'm considering the Lowrance as it's looks a bit more durable.
Your opinions please.

I did purchase the Go9 with the 3 in 1 transducer and have been getting familiar with it for a month on my work bench.
I know that I am going to be happy with it.

I have been using the Go9 for several years with the Airmar TM150. I think once you get the hang of it its easy to use.   I have the simrad autopilot as well which is just plug and play with these units. So is radar

Captain Steve, you have the Simrad Autopilot. Does it control your main motor or your kicker? I would invest in it if I could use it to control my 9.9 Merc Pro Kicker only. I have and I/O and don't want to run it to steer a kicker. Your thoughts.

It steers through the hydraulic lines.   So it turns the main.  The kicker has a tie bar to the main
