Sample Customer Reviews
Reviews of the Garmin 140 Fishfinder are outstanding overall.
Positive Customer Reviews
This product does what I want and more...When I catch a fish I can mark the spot and get right back on the fish. The screen is very readable and it does not take a genius to operate.
I found the installation and instructions for the Garmin 140 Fishfinder to be very good. Installation was straightforward, and the unit is much more capable than I would have guessed based on the price.
What a wonderful combo for fishing. You can tell where you are going, where you have been, where the fish are, how big they are, you can chart a new course - this thing does everything as advertised, and is so practical.
Negative Customer Reviews
I returned this because the map detail was poor and there is not way to upgrade the maps.
