Saw this on the D-90.com board:
I talked to the guy that is over the automotive division of Lowrance the other night for just a couple of minutes. He got his layoff notice a couple of weeks ago.
They were purchased by a Norwegian company some time back and that company has decided to get out of the automotive GPS business. I didn't have time to get any details but he will be gone at the end of this year.
The guy that founded the company 50 years ago has announced his retirement.
I've got a Lowrance BAJA 480C in my Land Rover - hate to think they're getting out of the business as I like their equipment.
