Lowrance HDS7 Trolling Motor help

Lowrance HDS7 Trolling Motor help - 04/16/20 05:48 PM

My dad purchased a Lowrance HDS7 Gen 2 fish/depth finder a year ago. He now wants to add a trolling motor to the boat that is comparable and utilities the Lowrance GPS, way points, etc.

Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

Motorguide is compatible with Lowrance, I just installed an xi-3 on my boat and love it

The motorguides are compatible as Bubba747 said above. You'll need to get a $300 adapter to make it work. It's worth it once you've forgotten you've paid for it. pick a way point and go to it. pick a path and follow it. Very nice features.
Good luck,
Tim

Thank you both for the replies. Skunked, what adaptor is needed?

I didn't know this. Thanks for informing me that I will need to spend another $150 for this feature. I figured it would just plug right into the unit somehow.
