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

Cappy, Amazon

  • 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.

Buy one, you won't like it

papadoc, Amazon
11 March 2013
  • 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.

Repair problem

Boat Owner, Amazon
18 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.

Good for the money

Ray, Amazon
28 October 2012
  • Summary: I have used many different brands of GPS on many boats since the advent of these wonderful navigation devices, I consider this one a good buy. The only real negative is that the menus are not particularly user friendly.

Getting to port

Commodore, Amazon
29 February 2012
  • Summary: I replaced my year old (5" color) unit with this 7" color unit. This 7" unit hooked up to my network, (rador, dept finder, fish finder). It was easy to hook up and wire. The base bracket allows it to be installed on the dash, off the roof or overhead.

Nice and big

Bossbuilt, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: I really like the build and size. GPS Tracking works fantastic. No mapping software seems to be available. I'd really like to be able to upload some offroad software. No altitude readout!!! I never would of guessed it wouldn't have that. Now I have to have two GPS's to get all the functions I need.
