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.
I used an LSS1 module and transducer for several years with an HDS8 Gen2 on console. I recently replaced it with a console mounted HDS9 Gen3 with a Totalscan transducer.
While I've only gotten to use the Gen3/Totalscan on the water 2-3 times its not been obvious to me so far that my old LSS1 was noticeably better in any way. YMMV.
Also - the Totalscan transducer maintains bottom readings wth 2D sonar at much higher speeds than either my old transom mount skimmer or in-hull transducers. My Totalscan is mounted to the roof of the hull's step.
