Rated 5 out of 5 by JasperFishing 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!!!

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.

I've just upgrade from the HDS 7 in the last 30 days. HDS 8 unit is faster loading and the Soft Keys are great to use. Most of the everyday features are a push button away. 4 screens are great to have right in front of you. I think that the best feature is to be able to scroll back to what you have passed if you want to have a second look. The updates are simple to get from the Lowrance site. Networking other HDS units is simple with ethernet cables linking Waypoints and Structure Scan transducer.
