Thanks Bobby. I was confused. I thought the two worked together and the lss-1 module interpreted the data and created an image. Man I wish I could get my images looking that good. I can't see pilings from docks and and stumps off to the side of the boat but when I go under a bridge the pilings from it show up clear.

Thinking about buying an HDS with structure scan, I currently have a lowrance 520 at the bow and 27c at console linked together. Would move 27c to bow and install hds unit at console with ssi. So questions are:

1) Can i use the current 83/200 transducer(blue connectors) in my bilge for the hds?
2) What type of connectivity or trading/sharing of info can occur between the hds unit and 27c?
3) Is it worth the price to jump from a bundled hds7 with ssi and purchase the hds 8 and then purchase the seperate ssi unit?

Thanks

Yes

2) What type of connectivity or trading/sharing of info can occur between the hds unit and 27c?

Good question....I know for sure that you can share waypoints

3) Is it worth the price to jump from a bundled hds7 with ssi and purchase the hds 8 and then purchase the seperate ssi unit?

You can purchase the HDS 7 and the LSS-1 cheaper as a bundle. If you are looking to have a second HDS unit, you will not need to purchase an additional LSS-1. The LSS-1 easily networks via ethernet with up to three HDS devices.

Hope this helps

This big pile of concrete and steel is the remnants of the old Pendelton Harbor bridge. I couldn't find much remaining of the main steel span but there was an additional 1500 feet like shown in the picture.

Hey Jason I bought a 7 bundle. Will the gauges (you know, the tach, fuel, etc.) work with a 99 Yamaha Vmax? If so where can I buy the cables?

Not too many pics on here so I'll add a few for the fellas thinking about buying a new unit. The Lowrance is a plug and play unit with the di/si, there is no adjusting that has to be done to get good pics, just turn it on & go. The other brand requires fine tuning to get clear pics. (That's for the guys researching the units & trying to decide on a brand.)

Whats under your boat?


Down deep!


Rockpile with side imaging.


Same rockpile downscan.


Roadbed while lake was being built?


Same roadbed with the downscan and the thermocline..

Side scan of feeding cormorants.


Down scan of cormorants above. Look at the school of fish they are going after.

The GPS refresh rates on Lowrance HDS units come from the factory with a default “auto” setting. This auto setting adjusts the GPS refresh rate based on your speed. Some settings work pretty well from the factory, but this is not one of them. If you’re speeding down the lake, the refresh rate is fast. If you’re idling slowly down a ledge, the refresh rate is very slow and does not update the micro movements. This causes serious update delays… causing your unit to live in the past. If precise boat positioning is important to you — and it should be — you want real time updates.

The best way to get around these slow refresh rates is by going into the “Waypoints, Routes, and Trails menu.

1) Press “Page”

2) Press the right arrow on the cursor pad to scroll over to “Waypoints, Routes and Trails”

3) Use the arrows to select “trails” and hit the “menu” button.

4) Use the cursor pad to highlight settings, then press the enter button

5) Change the “logging type” to “Time”

6) Finally, set the time to “1 sec”. Press close and exit out.

Thanks Jason, i'll check/change that setting on both of mine this evening! Totally unaware of this! Thanks for the help with my LSS-1. I changed out the power cable and everything is working fine. You're awsome!

Can you tell me how to input gps coordinates directly into the HDS7? I have someone that is willing to share some waypoints with me and is giving me the coordinates. Ill need to input them so I can find some fish!!!
