GREAT PRODUCT

gwishin51, Ebay
3 April 2014
  • Summary: I had 2 HDS-5 units which were great but felt the screens were a little small so I found 2 HDS-7 and so far they are wonderful. I have always had Lorance on my boats and never had a problem with any of them.

  • Summary: The HDS-8 with side and down scan is awesome. I've had it on my console for 4 years. I've replaced an hds-5 on the bow with this new HDS-8. so far I've found 4 sunken boats, 6 old sunken bridges and lot's of brush / rock piles. Can't wait to get back out on the water ....

This Lowrance unit is used by Always Fishing Guide Service here in Florida

  • Summary: the newer one has been fixed... Scrolling to find a number is not easy on this model Lowrance. I had bought two machines and took it out of my offshore boat and replaced it with the older Lowrance that works much better. I still use the one in my flats boat.

Nonfunctional unit.

rugger79fish, Ebay
10 April 2013
  • Summary: The unit I purchased was used. I made the mistake of not testing it completely when I received it. Yesterday I put my boat in the water and the GPS and Structure Scan portions worked but the depth finder did not. Therefore it is useless. I have checked with Lowrance and it will cost $599 to have the unit repaired or replaced. Therefore I certainly cannot say that I am pleased with this specific unit. I have attempted to purchase another Depth finder/GPS through Ebay.

Buy one, you won't like it

papadoc, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased a Lowrance HDS7 when the unit first came out. The dealer and the boating press hailed it as the best new electronic item on the market. It is a fine unit, as long as you never leave the dock. It was designed by someone who has never been at sea. It is in a word, just plain hard to use, much like the original windows program where you had several steps to reach your goal.

  • Summary: Very nice unit. Can't wait to get it on the boat this spring. Had a Garmin on my last boat and so far this is an equal if not superior unit. Very pleased.

Repair problem

Boat Owner, Amazon
17 December 2012
  • Summary: I've had problems getting Lowrance to repair my equipment after it's five years old. As close as I can tell, after five years, you might have to buy a new one if this one breaks.

It is working great.

akaskafisherman, Ebay

  • Summary: It is exactly as advertised, in good condition and is working great in my boat. The GPS is what I needed the most, and it is perfect. The Sonar is an added benefit. I would recommend the HDS5 to my friends and family.
