Dealers just been on, my HDS should be in today or tomorrow.

Engines there getting serviced at the minute so should be picking it up tomorrow and then getting on with fitting the unit.

Structure scan should hopefully be in as well.

Looking forward to trying it out.

I paid 449 for structure scan from our local dealer, they matched the price Marinescene were quoting.

HDS 10 looks fantastic but I've just got enough room on the console for the 8.

not at the mo.
i have mounted it on the top of my console, behind the screen.
did not want to cut the console to fit it!

the installation is simple, just a half dozen wires, and hey presto!

Bargain.

Will hopefully be installing mine tomorrow then straight out to give it a try.

Forecast not bad for tomorrow afternoon.

Starting to think about the addition of radar now, broadband range is 24nm I think. I'll see how I get on with the unit first.

Is that the price of the Elite Fishfinder or the HDS chartplotter?

Think its for the structure scan to add to HDS unit.

I got mine for 449 - structure scan - 1479 for HDS 8 plus another 221 for transducer and chart upgrade.

Might be able to get it for less on the net somewhere but happy to pay that from local Lowrance dealer, then if I do have any problems I can just nip in to get them sorted.
