I have to replace the LSS-1 transducer on the TM due to an off water accident. Currently, a LSS-1 transducer and LSS-1 Structure Scan Box is connected to the bow HDS9 G3. Which works best with the HDS9 G3/LSS-1 Structure Scan module, LSS-1 or LSS-2 transducer? I plan to keep the Structure Scan Box as is. FYI - this unit (HDS9 G3) is connected to the console's HDS10 G2, which has its own HDS Structure Scan LSS-1 module and transducer on the stern. They are connected via NMEA2k but not by Ethernet.

I'd appreciate in practical experience input for screen quality and performance. I don't know if an LSS-2 would even fit on the TM (MG Xi5).

Thank you.

Can`t speak on the Gen 3 unit but I have a HDS 10 Gen 2 on my console a HDS 7 Gen2 up front and have used a LSS1( very short) transducer on the Troll Motor and in back with no Module and have had great pictures.I did have to use the HDS adapter between the units & Transducer no module/ structure scan box needed.Just the Adapter!

Since your Gen3 unit is at the bow... i would just get a total scan transducer. This will give you 2d, down scan and left/right scan on the tm. Just plug it in the back of the unit. You will need a TM bracket.. go to http://www.russellmarineproducts.com/category-s/545.htm and get the bracket for the tm.

I also sent you a pm.

From all my readings of the various forums, where it’s at now is the 3d ducer. Not so much for the 3d part, but for all the extra crystals that give enhanced images.

As far as the lss1 & 2, my lss2 gave better crisper si images and my lss1 gave better di. But I’m currently running 2- lss1’s just because I prefer their compact size compared to the lss2. The lss2 also gives a few more feet of useable si distance.

My structure scan transducer is on the back of boat. Up front I run the HDI transducer as it fits better on a trolling motor and provides sonar and down-scan.

I use the Total scan on my Gen3, but I've heard the LSS-2 has better imagery. I just hate having to put 3 transducer on my boat for the different graphs on the boat; so I chose the total scan + trolling motor 83/200. just my opinion for my use case.
