I purxhased this FF/Chartplotter a couple of months ago for my 21' SeaRay Laguna CC. I installed the HDS 5 myself and have been quite pleased with it performance. I fished on this boat in the SF bay and ocean; I love the efficiency of this unit. I would recommend it to others and plan to purchase another HDS in the near future because I desire a larger screen/viewing area.

I bought the 5" 18 months ago. It failed after a couple trips out. Lowrance upgraded the unit for me to a 7" for a little extra as I was finding my eyesite required it. I must say the features are not quite as intuitive as I had hoped and I still cannot seem to get good arches on my sonar even though my transducer seems to be installed correctly. I do get the "fish symbols" clearly. I have not taken the time to view any of the optional DVD's that are available but I guess I need to check that out. This is not my first time using sonar or chartplotter. 45 yrs boating. Customer service is great!

Fast, Fast, fast. Excellent redrawing of charts. Wish on screen symbols could be enlarged.( depths and markers) Miss not having tide data like my old unit.

Comments about Lowrance HDS-5x Gen2 Fishfinder (83/200 kHz):

I purchased 2 HDS-5 Gen II units along with Structure Scan and a network cable about 3 months ago. It takes a little getting used to, but I am very pleased with the operation and display.
