I bought this device 6 months ago and have been very impressed with it from the moment I took it out of the box. It has a ton of features and great expandability. Salmon fishing means fishing in salt water and at depths of 100' plus and I was doubtful the downscan and sidescan would be very effective in these conditions but I've found good definition to about 150' on the downscan and just the other day found a school of salmon 75' to the side of the boat. I marked them with a waypoint, came about and boom picked up 3 fish. As I learn more about what's on the screen my results continue to improve. I love my HDS 7.

We have had this for three weeks and the second time we used it the touch screen stopped working. We did what the book said and that did not work, ugh! After doing some online research I found out there was already an update for our newly purchased fish-finder. Took a while to download the zip file, (don't know why it is a zip file) anyway, once downloaded copied and pasted to an SD card and put it in the fish-finder turned it on, it immediately started updating. The touch screen still did not work. Turned it off and once again (as the manual said to do) held down the Waypoint key and touched and released the power button, once I heard the second beep, I let go of the Waypoint key and it finally worked like it was suppose to but only after I updated it. YES! Now to learn the other million things this hi-tech fish-finder can do.

Awesome experience

By Stingray1

from Star, NC, United States

Comments about Lowrance HDS-7 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter with one-year Insight Genesis subscription, no transducer:

I bought this unit and installed it in the dash, bought the Structurescan transducer to go with it. Bought an ethernet cable to link my bow mounted HDS 5X to this unit. I cannot believe the genius of the team at navionics/Lowrance. I had a simple "sonar" only unit (HDS5x) at the bow and suddenly it is a duplicate of the HDS 7 Gen 2 unit with all the same options and capabilities... Unbelieveable!!! It's like I bought 2 new units...could not be happier and swear by Lowrance products from here on out.

        Comments about Lowrance HDS-7 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter with one-year Insight Genesis subscription, no transducer:

        Great unit if it works. GPS is fast and accurate. Sonar and downscan died 3 weeks new. Now back to warranty. Also, would not recommend online vendor getfeetwet. they cannot exchange unit even it is under 30 days.

        Not for land Navigation

        By Desertdweller

        from Nevada, United States

        Comments about Lowrance HDS-7 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter with one-year Insight Genesis subscription, no transducer:

        I bought this unit to use for desert navigation, as it was advertised as having GPS functionality. Admittedly, that is not its primary designated use. I have found it to be very hard to figure out, as the manual is aimed at all the other functions. When I think I have it figured out, something else happens. There is also a significant lag in the measured ground speed as well changing mapping scale. All in all a very disappointing purchase. If you plan on using this unit for primarily land navigation plan on being disappointed. It does that function quite well.
