Re: HDS 8 Gen 2 do i have side scan or structire scan?

You would need either the LSS-1 module and transducer or the newer LSS-2 module and transducer.
With either addition you would have structure (side to side) and down imaging.

You can export all your wpts and trails to an SD card just to see IF you are having a memory bog-down. If no change is experienced, you can then import all your files back to the HDS.

Hey Morgan, first thing to check is voltage at the unit. Low voltage/current is a leading cause of re-booting, and 12’s especially. Try turning the back sticker light OFF to see if it helps.

The correct way is to add another battery for 'house' or 'electronics' loads. It is possible to pull clean power from either the cranking bat or the TM bat bank by utilizing a DC-DC Converter. The downside is killing either of those banks and being without power to get to the weigh-in on time. All t...

Really not a 'which is better' scenario as much as it is a 'which do I need'.
A very general way to approach this, N2K for sensors and ETHERNET for the rest, or ETHERNET is fast and N2K is slooow.
Even with both networks installed, which I prefer, you still can't share everything.

So you will NOT get full sharing between two units that are NOT connected via Ethernet. The waypoint sharing you talk about using N2K is only available when both units are on. You can't mark waypoints on one MFD and later turn the other machine ON and populate with those previously marked waypoints....
