Lake Maps and GPS

What is everyone using for their lake maps/gps unit? I have had Navionics on my phone for years but am looking to get a handheld GPS unit for ice fishing. Looking for something where I can put myself onto waypoints using the most accurate lake map. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I use a 10" tablet with Navionics. Keeps the phone safe and is a way bigger screen.

I have my helix 7 with lake master. Have mount on Polaris ranger and sled. Also have mount on Genz box for walking or truck. Can get some smaller screen units for pretty cheap price and I like the lake master over navionics

The hand held market is not being pushed. Our phones are way more powerful, but nobody wants to release a detailed app with the same functionality as a display unit because then they won't sell as many screens I'm guessing. Navionics is ok on some lakes, but for most it is still horribly inaccurate, waypoint management is lacking, no trail recording, poor navigation features etc. Still hard to beat a multi-function display. I have been running my elite 7 with a lowrance promaps chip on a ram mount that will go mount in my truck and on my sled and wheeler.
