Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Maximum feature use I own the HDS7 touch and tried the Elite 7 in combination with it but quickly found I couldn't effectively communicate between the two units, so I "traded in" the Elite 7 and purchased the HDS7. I can now use the HDS7 in my small boat, and use both units (HDS7 Touch and HDS7) simultaneously when in my bigger boat. When connected with the Ethernet network cable, I can share transducer information. I installed the Navionics Platinum Map Card in the HDS7, the Elite 7 did not accept this card. The HDS7 provides exceptional navigation while the HDS7-T provides fantastic down and side scan views. I had purchased the Elite 7 to replace my older navigation unit. The HDS7 gives me far better navigation capabilities and features and just plain works great in combination with the HDS7-T. October 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gps by Lowrance I am very pleased with the purchase of the HDS-7... July 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by About Time After being frustrated with other Depth/Fish finders do to misreadings, hard or impossible to read with my glasses on or the sun wiping out the screen; I finally bought the Lowrance. I have never been happier. I set it up on my boat myself. I have to admit I did not read the directions for using the product. I was able to find everything I needed with just following the screens, they make sense! The sun does nothing to the screen. Works awesome with my sun glasses. Extremely accurate! August 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by WoW!!! I just upgraded to the gen 2 and the structure overlay and fraster processor is very nice! Well worth the money! April 17, 2012

Staff Answer
A: 
If purchasing Dual Frequency or Dual Search, units running at 83/200 kHz will be best for freshwater and inshore saltwater anglers. Offshore anglers should opt for units with a 50/200 kHz configuration.

Most of the sonar units that we sell accessories for operate at 200 kHz (kilohertz). Some are dual-frequency capable, meaning they can use both 50 and 200 kHz transducers. And a few new models are dual-search capable, allowing for both 83 and 200 kHz operation. Typically, high frequency (200 or 192 kHz) sonar units provide the best resolution and definition of structure and targets. They excel at showing minute details of the underwater world. 50 and 83 kHz frequencies have much greater depth penetration capability, but show less definition.

As the wording says, "basemap". The Insight USA is more detailed. But if you want real detail and better close inland views such as upstream rivers, channels, and other small bodies of water leading into the bays and major bodies of water, go with the Navionics Platinum Map cards. I bought the $200. version for the Texas / Louisiana coastal area.

Insight mapping delivers unprecedented inland mapping and coastal charting detail with lightning-fast screen display updates. Amazing contour shading lends life-like perspectives to bottom structure as well as topography below and above the water. Insight mapping choices include:
● Lake Insight™ inland mapping includes nearly 5,000 freshwater lake maps with life-like perspective of bottom structure and topography.Coverage includes the Great Lakes and more than 500 Fishing Hot Spots® Lakes!
● Nautic Insight™ offers a superior like-like view of coastal bottom structure with detailed coastal and offshore depth contours, plus nav aids, for the entire U.S. coastline.
● Insight USA™ combines inland and coastal coverage areas of Lake Insight™ and Nautic Insight™.
Base-map
The Enhanced U.S. Base-map offers the same geographic coverage area as the Insight mapping, with over 100,000 bodies of water and 4,600 enhanced U.S. lakes with high detail lake shorelines and contours.

YES. I doubt that any brand unit sold nowadays would not include nmea 2000. The HDS7 uses the nmea connector for your choice of 0183 or 2000 which is selectable in the units features.

The maps that are included with this unit are Insight USA® mapping or Enhanced US basemapping. Insight USA® has expansive coverage of lakes across the continental U.S. The unit does have 2 SD card slots that you could use to load Lowrance's Nautic Insight Mapping or Navionics maps in order to get coastal coverage.

The default setting is usually sufficient for most users. There is not actually a "best" setting. The customer should try out different settings to find the best setting for their use and water/bottom conditions.

A: 
Since you say "the transducer that came with the unit," you probably have a standard 83 / 200 KHz sonar transducer. The 83 is for viewing deeper water while the 200 setting is best suited for shallower water (100 feet or less). An additional transducer for downscan / sidescan can can be used at the same time for incredible bottom views. If you didn't buy the "bundle package" when you bought the unit, you would have to buy the additional downscan /sidescan transducer.

A: 
The newer models now include structure map capability; However, you can buy a model at a lower base price which will come with only the traditional sonar unit. The "same" model at a higher price simply includes both the traditional sonar transducer plus the separate downscan / sidescan transducer. You can't see the downscan / sidescan structure view without the additional transducer.
