Does anyone have the HDS8 and how does it perform and compare to the older LCX units?
I fitted a HDS8 + Structure Scan to my rib a few months ago, and I'm absolutely stunned how good it actually is.
I can't comment how it compares to the LCX units, as my previous fish finder (before some scrote nicked it, along with nearly 6k of my diving equipment...) was a Raymarine DX500 (not a shabby unit in its own right), but it pales into the shadows by comparison.
I believe the units from the US are restricted to using feet & degrees 'F', it may be worth doing some further digging.
Anyway hope that helps
