Got a couple of questions:

1. Do the Elite Ti and or Hook 2 units have Ethernet or NMEA 2000 capability?

2. Are either units compatible with the Lowrance GPS Point 1 heading sensor?

3. I currently run an HDS 12 Gen 3 unit at the console and use the LSS2 and the HST - WSBL 2D sonar. My question is can I use the total scan transducer instead of both of the transducers I currently use?

4. Is there a difference between the HST-WSU and the HST-WSBL transducers?

5. I have a Minn Kota Ultrex with a universal 2D sonar and its connected to a HDS 12 Gen 3 unit, which transducer do I select in the installation settings as my transducer?

I've answered some.

2. Are either units compatible with the Lowrance GPS Point 1 heading sensor? The Elite TI does. The Point 1 connects through NMEA 2000

3. I currently run an HDS 12 Gen 3 unit at the console and use the LSS2 and the HST - WSBL 2D sonar. My question is can I use the total scan transducer instead of both of the transducers I currently use? Seems likes there is an adapter for that, however, I don't know why you would want to. You should have the LSS2 on the transom and the WSBL in the hull. This is to provide a reading while you're on plane through the 2D sonar. To mount the totalscan where you can read on plane if you have a glass boat, it would have to be on the pad to read while running.

4. Is there a difference between the HST-WSU and the HST-WSBL transducers? Both are skimmers but can be located in the hull. The HSt-WSU is 200khz and the HST-WSBL is 83/200

5. I have a Minn Kota Ultrex with a universal 2D sonar and its connected to a HDS 12 Gen 3 unit, which transducer do I select in the installation settings as my transducer?
The generic 83/200

Excellent answers. Anytime a boat is equipped with an in-hull sonar transducer and your model will allow for a sonar plug-in (blue connector) like you have on the Gen3 series, I would stay with your current set-up.

Is there a website out there that gives a list of all the different types of Lowrance transducers and there application and explains a little about each transducer?

PD model is a shoot thru the hull.
PDT is a shoot thru with a temp probe built into it (used on trolling motors).
PDRT is a shoot thru hull with a temp probe on a separate wire.

The HST’s are skimmer models that are mainly used on the transom and they have temp built into them.

Now the last part **-wsbl (for example) I’m clueless on. You’ll have to go by what Mr. Jones posted above.


With the hds series you have 83/200 or 50/200, for a lake you want the 83/200. If you were in the ocean the 50/200 would be better. Then you get into CHIRP and we won’t even discuss that unless you want to get really advanced.


Might be easier for you to tell us what you want to accomplish and we can give you recommendations and then you can research it easier.
