Lowrance Hook 7ish

At the end of last season I bought a new to me boat which came with a Lowrance Hook Reveal 7ss. Good machine and Iíve got it set up with speed depth etc and a local map. Problem is that there is no accuracy with the GPS positioning, it can actually show me on land even though Iím in the middle of the channel.
Do I need to download or buy a separate Sid card to enable more accurate positioning please.

What map is installed? Is it just a world background map or do you have a chart package either on a card or pre-installed?

There’s no card in the slot so just the base map it came with I guess.

You need a chart card with the areas you intend to use. I prefer Navionics, others are available.

Hi, just buy Navionics or C-Map Discover maps from your local dealer and you will be fine
