I have an HDS unit and an older LCX fitted on my RIB.
The HDS is very flexible and has both Structure scan and music routed through it, however the chart display on the LCX units is clearere and more paper like plus updatyes and zooms better.
If they put the LCX display on with the HDS features it would be perfect!

Not unless they changed since coming out with the HDS system.

From the HDS-8 manual:

Controls the unit of measure used for a variety of
data, ranging from distance and speed to heading and
barometric pressure. To access the Units menu, select
Units from the Settings menu and press enter.
To change a unit of measure:
1. Select a unit from the Units menu. Press
2. Select the a unit of measure and press

Unfortunately, that doesn't express exactly what your choices are for units, but I would doubt they limited it to feet/miles/Fahrenheit, as the North American version would also be sold in Canada, where metric is used.
