Have been shopping around and cabelas offers two gen-2HDS-9 with the lss2 box and gps puck plus Ethernet cables for $2k. Is this not the best deal on an entry level setup for a boat with old 2d only graphs.

Look for the Lowrance "Boat in a Box" bundles. You'll get the gen-3 bundles now, but that looks like a pretty good deal for gen2 (as long as they are the touch models), which the 9 should be.

Note, it has the forward looking 'spotlight scan' transducer for the TM.

Here is a 12/9 Gen3 package that is pretty solid:

Give bbg, universal mania, shut up and fish, or Russel marine a call and they will get you the best deals on a "boat in a box" bundles. That's the easiest route

Are they way cheaper? Seems like everything I've seen on the gen 3's is $3500+. Bit more than I was looking to spend. But want big enough the side scan is useful.

Go to the Lowrance Factory Outlet store. You can get a Lowrance Elite 7ti total scan for $799.00
Color, touch screen with side/down scan. I have one and love it.
