Lowrance hds gen 2 touch

Post by Feathor » Sat Dec 08, 2018 4:03 pm

I have a standard 600w transducer with the gen2 touch.
Tried different setups on transom and can't get clear readings. Looking at upgrading to a 1kw transducer, does anyone have experience with this or good knowledge if it's worthwhile.
Any advice is appreciated
Cheers

Feathor,

The standard transducer works, but takes a bit of playing around to setup the angle correctly and read bottom.

Make sure you have the specific transducer selected in the lowrance sounder, otherwise all effort will be wasted.

I have used a number of different transducers, the Gen 2 and 3 wont maximise the full use of a 1kw tranny.

Best money is spent on getting someone who knows sounders to give it an overview for you
