Any difference between the 2 ducers other than having to buy a sonar ducer if I had the LSS-2 with and HDS Gen 3?

Totalscan is good for trolling motors and slow boats. If you need high speed sonar readings then go with a transom skimmer or shoot through the hull puck for sonar.

The totalscan is good for speeds up to 50mph

Alright...

Typically when you're running water you're not really graphing anything, right? So, with that in mind, the total scan skimmer transducer would be all I needed for the console graph?

What would be the ideal transducer for the HDS at the bow?

I appreciate that help. This is all knew to me and a lot to digest. Learning as quickly as possible here!

I havent tried the totalscan on the bow but plan on upgrading to one this winter. I have an Elite Ti9 on my console and I can attest that at 50ish (fast as my boat goes) it still reads quite well.

Totalscan transducer is too big for trolling motor. It will need to be mounted on the back just like the LSS2. The LSS2 and a separate sonar transducer are the best. This way you can mount the LSS2 a little higher (more out of harms way) and make sure your sonar transducer keeps reading at high speeds. However Totalscan will work. Call me if you have any questions. You can also find some good videos via Google - Lowrance youtube videos. Cell 817-319-1194

They make trolling motor mounts for the totalscan

Hey guys looking for input. Been running Gen 1's with LSS1. I just purchased a Gen three with the total scan transducer. Some have said to use the LSS1 instead. Thoughts? Oh, this is for the console.
