HDS8 vs HDS9 gen3 - 09/13/20 07:55 PM

I current have a HDS8 front console mounted on my Trition XS21 and I’m wondering if a HDS9 gen3 touchscreen will fit in the same hole?
Thanks in advance, Dick

The old HDS8 non-touch units were shaped different than all the newer HDS touch screens. You will have to do some modification work. Hope you have the room. You will love moving up to touch and the Gen-3 was a very good product.

Rob, thanks for your response. What did you mean by the Gen 3 “was” a very good product?
