It is probably much better to convert cable to hydraulic then buy the hydro Outboard Pilot. That is what I have done in the past, $ about the same.

As far as I know, you need to have more than one unit networked in order for that to appear. This is simply a way of telling you where that unit is getting it's sonar info from. This 411 is important in some instances but maybe not important at all in other cases. If you consider the many different ...

Some things to look at.

2 try zooming IN extremely close.
3 make sure you have a clear view of the sky.

Simply put.....one transducer vs two.
The product with mid/high LSS-HD has 2 transducer and the other has a single TotalScan transducer.

Check the product description for each as there could also be mapping differences or options.

Re: Lowrance struct. Scan or HD Module whats the difference?

There is a huge difference between HD and 3D. You may not find a need for 3D but, the 3D module gives you more side-2-side area to view. If your budget can stand a few hundred more, go with the 3D. If not, the SS-HD will work great, especially with the latest 'FishReveal' upgrade.
