Musky Equipment User Review from user hawkanth:

I bought this unit with insight USA. The guys at Lowrance just told me that "this mapping is nowhere near the level of detail that you get if you buy the Insight HD card from them". I feel like I was sold a bill of goods and should have spent my $$ on the navionics or insight card directly from another source. As far as the unit goes...I love it, and would recommend it.
