Hi Justin et al

Im looking at the new HDS 7 Live for the boat and i have a few questions for you or anyone else who may have one.

Do you need a seperate transducer for the 3D funtionality, or does it come with 3D straight out of the box? (and is it really worth the additioanl cost if it's extra)

My current transducer (for a Lowrance LMS520) is mounted thru hull and is situated directly under the centre console. If if I was to keep the old unit, do you think it would cause interference to the new model?

Lowrance Livesight - what exactly is it, is there value in getting it (when it comes out) and what additional hardware / software will be required?

Hope you don't mind all the questions mate. The closer I get to 50, the less tech savy I get these days.

Cheers!

George

Hi George
The Live has a big long transducer that will need to be added.
I never had that model sounder but have seen it in action - it is fantastic.
See if you can go to the next size up - remember size DOES matter !

Thanks Stuart

Long time - no speak. Hope you're well mate.

I've seen that long transducer, but i'm not convinced that one enables the 3D functionality, and I suspect you require a second transducer as well (as an added option) to be able to use 3D.

How the Livesight functionality works (once that is released by Lowrance) is yet another question, and totally beyond me.

...and it's how you use it that counts.

Finally getting back into some saltwater fly fishing. I've done a complete overhaul of the boat and just bought and fitted a lowrance Elite Ti2 9". I did look at the HDS 7 but the Elite offers significantly bigger screen for a similar price and personally not sure the extra features offered me much extra value. As stuart says, size matters. My 10 year old 5" Navman still works so kept both though not connected - a transducer on port and starboard side. Still trying to work out how to get the best out of it, especially the side scan. All tips welcome.

My touch screen on my Simrad went after 2 years.
I got no joy from them,so I went back to Furuno-the original sounder.
I bought the latest 9 inch Furuno GP 1971F-combo fishfinder/GPS Chartplotter.No frills
Traditional sounder + CHIRP.No sidescan/downscan-which I never used on the
Simrad.Iím very happy with it-you buy what you are comfortable with.Good luck.
