I have a Lowrance HDS 5 unit that just completely quit working on me last year. I turned it off, went to another spot and it would not come back on. It was on my front deck. I bought it used about a year prior. I have had a lot of bad luck with lowrance units over the years, so frustrated with it, I put the unit on the shelf in my garage where it has sat for over a year now. Is it possible that it could be repaired? When I have called lowrance about fixing other units before they simply told me to go buy another one even though I have been told by others that lowrance repaired their units.

That has happened to me 3 times. The first 2 times, it was in warranty and they replaced it. The last time, they only offered a discount on a refurbished one.

Lowrance has been more than fair to me. I had a hds10 quit working. On a Sunday practicing for a tournament. Called them Monday. Put my 10 in a overnight box. Sent my shipping info to them. And they mailed mine out. Had it for Tuesday evening

Buddy of mine just had the same issue with his HDS 5...he contacted lowrance and they told him to send it in. After a few days they told him it was bad and they would offer him up to a touch 9(I think on size)for a really good deal.
