The coolest marine electronics advancement ever

 Video Included

Modern electronics are, for me, a simple means of getting from one place to another. Just turn on my old Lowrance, wait for the satellites to relay information and then watch my little boat icon as it moves through the watery terrain I’ve chosen for the day.

I don’t save trails. I don’t delete trails unless they become so crowded I can’t tell where the heck I have just been.

And, yeah, I know I could use the mapping software to plan out routes, and mark and save waypoints. 

I don’t do any of that, either.
