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!

Comments about Lowrance HDS 5 Gen2 Fishfinder / GPS Chartplotter, Lake Insight with 83 / 200 kHz Transducer:

Have always liked Lowrance products but this one is the exception. HOWEVER, I am not very good on a computer and I CANNOT get the last two software updates to install in this unit!! I also have an HDS-8 GEN 1 and HAVE NOT had a problem installing them into that unit.. WHY??? If the updates were easier to install, I would have given this unit 10 STARS!!!!!!!!! Soooooo, I have not been able to update the unit, is this my fault? If you want to keep me as a customer, you better help me with this problem!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Excellent product for my boat

By Dablazer

Comments about Lowrance HDS 5 Gen2 Fishfinder / GPS Chartplotter, Lake Insight with 83 / 200 kHz Transducer:

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 have had the unit two years now and #1 the price was to high, 2nd if you don't know how to use it it is no good. I am liking it better as I learn it. Why not have a good instruction video.
