Rated 4 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great If you don't have these products on your rig, uuuuuuu are just fun fishing. Serious anglers, these units are a must! Love it! August 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by HDS 8 worth the money for front of boat I used to run the HDS 5 on the front of the boat. Thought that was all I needed until I put the 8" screen HDS-8 up front. What an awsome view standing on the front deck!!! May 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by HDS 8 Generation 2 I installed this unit with an LSS-1. Please read my review of the LSS-1. These units do work as advertised. On a 3rd and 4th trip I spen a lot of time scanning some of the areas I fish frequently and have received a good education on why I catch fish in some areas and why I don't catch fish in others. I have struck several of th "fishy" looking areas from my favorites list because of what I learned using the HDS8/LSS-1. Most amazing is the way man made structure and debris around bridges and docks looks with these units. And when I do find fish around these places, I leave them to cool off for while and come back. I like to scout a few places and plan a sequence to fish them after I have located bass and decided on baits and techniques. These units are expensive for an old retired soldier, but I used my Bass Pro Shops Reward Points and the 300.00 Rebate from Lowrance to save 650.00 on these units. I am well pleased with the performance and can't wait to see what I learn about my local water on the next trip. I have save some gas too. The Yamaha 250 does not burn a lot @ idle when the Lowrance HDS8 and LSS-1 is in the Sructure Scan Mode. April 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best buy ever I just upgraded to the HDS 8 Gen 2 and the processor speed and sturcture overlay is unbelievable! April 17, 2012

Hi, the Lowrance® HDS-8 Gen2 Fishfinder/GPS Chartplotter item number 1856543 does not include the StructureScan® HD LSS-2. You would need to purchase the item separately, which the item number is 1905580. Thank you

The Insight map has more detail to it. I have owned 3 different chart plotters and the first one only had the base map. I will not use another one without it having Navionics maps. Much better detail for navigation.

A: 
Base Map is a bare-bones basic map of US major lakes and waterways. Insight includes multiple levels of detail options, zoom for closer look at details, built-in expert fishing tips on US inland lakes, and either east or west coastal waters.

the new hds gen2 has what they call structure map that overlays on lake maps and works with your structure scan all at the same time. This is definitly worth buying over the old hds units.
