After two seasons I realize that I would rather have this unit than any other piece of equipment on my boat. It's a beautiful display like HD television underwater. It's quick, as if using a smartphone. Even the radar is more enjoyable to use. I have had raymarine in the past and this blows it away. Quick learning curve. Next to my boat it is the single best investment I made.

I own the HDS12 Gen2 Touch and am very pleased with it. Would love to see SpotLite Scan available for ALL applications and ALL mounting scenarios. Would love NOT to pay for the personalized mapping via subscription. Would love to get a straight, consistent answer on whether LSS-1 or LSS-2 transducer will work with my unit.

Touch 12

By FishHard

from Taylor, TX, United States

Comments about Lowrance HDS-12 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter:

I have absolutely enjoyed my Touch 12 and 9. It is very user friendly except when your fingers are wet. My only complaint is that Lowrance products change every 12-18 months, (i.e. they come out with newer versions so quick that I've had buyer remorse with my last 4 electronics purchases).

This is my ninth Lowrance. From paper to screen

By Cmgreeniv

from Pensacola Florida

Comments about Lowrance HDS-12 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter:

We have had every Larance they have made since approximately 1990. This unit is much better than the generation one and it has a ton of features. The only major issue I am having with it recently is the charts are slow.

Not thrilled with my 12

By Mikehabrat

from Minnesota

Comments about Lowrance HDS-12 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter:

The more I use my 12 the more it irritates me. It locks up and restarts every outing. Sometimes for no apparent reason. It always does as soon as I turn on my lss1 box which powers my network. It also always restarts with an insight genesis map card in it. Very, very frustrating.

GEN 2 Touch 12 & 9 they're fantastic.

By Kunfu

from Sturgeon Bay, WI, United States

Comments about Lowrance HDS-12 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter:

I have been using these units since they came out. Love the ease of operation and clarity. I like the way it pulls fish that are even tight to the bottom. It is one of the best tools I have in my arsenal to catch more fish. The new update to 4.0 even made it easier to operate.

3 Years and going strong

By Limitout

from Columbia, SC, United States

Comments about Lowrance HDS-12 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter:

This unit is the epitome of your marketing phrase "Find, Navigate, Dominate". I primarily Striper fish and this unit has helped me to consistently catch more fish. Especially the side scan in conjunction with the broad band improves search capablities tremendously. The touch screen allows quick interaction with multiple functional screens. A really great unit!

The touch is not as good as expected!

By nfairbank

from Florida

Comments about Lowrance HDS-12 Gen2 Touch Fishfinder/Chartplotter:

I purchased this for a friend after his HDS-10 Gen2 decided to stop working. Overall, I am not impressed with the touch implementation. Most of the time, the touch was used to facilitate menu options. I am also disappointed that the replacement unit was sold just a week, or so, before the Gen3 Touch was available.
