I have a Lowrance HDS 12 Gen 2 Touch. Is there any way to equip it with CHIRP?

You’d have to buy a sonar hub for it to chirp. You’d be better off waiting until the gen3’s go on closeout and getting one (sell the gen2 to recoup some of the money). Unless you find a used sonar hub cheap someplace.

That’s a structure scan box for side imaging, it won’t do chirp. (Unless he has another post there that I didn’t see)

No problem but chirp is done from the head unit. It cannot be added. But if I had your unit I would add that box for the price.

Aye yi yie, if he buys a SONAR HUB he can get chirp sonar. He has no reason for that lss module, side imaging is already built into his graph head.

Do not buy that structure scan module and think that you’re going to get chirp, the guy above is giving you wrong info.


This is what you’d have to have for chirp on a gen 2. But it will not give you side imaging and chirp, it only does one or the other! Again, if you want chirp you are better off getting a gen3.
