I have 2 Lowrance TI2's on my boat. My base unit is at console and the 2nd on the bow. My question is my GPS antenna is on back of the boat and when I mark something I know that is the mark were the antenna is but on my front unit I have it set for I-GPS this unit so does that mean its under my unit at the front of the boat.

I'm guessing I-gps stands for internal gps antenna..... and yes it's marked locations will be where the unit itself is.... Do know these units are not dead on but will have you very close.....

if those units have internal antennas you do not need the antenna on the back
i do not know about lowrance but humming bird has what is called a casting
ring set up around the way point you can go in and change the size of that
casting ring to bring the boat in close to the way point.
