Review: Lowrance iFinder Expedition

Our reaction on opening the box: “Ew!” But like a pug, the iFinder is so ugly, it’s almost cute. Unfortunately, the performance is less lovable. Proprietary FreedomMap software is impossible to find; a copy had to be overnighted from Lowrance when we couldn’t locate a store that carried it. Big rubber buttons with weird labels (“Zint” and “Zout”) protrude from the unit’s face make it impossible to carry in a pocket. Upsides: Accuracy was good within 20 feet and automatic waypoint marking made finding the trail a breeze, even if returning on a previously traveled path triggered an alarm every 30 seconds. Ack.
