Lowrance hds/ lowrance 522c are they networkable

2 posts in this topic

Are you able to network these two units? I have looked and looked and can't find an answer, if I have the 522 in my dash and put the hds 5 or 7 on the bow am i able to network them and get weighpoints on both, are they able to be hooked up by the NMEA system? Or is there a problem, I see in some posts here the the new HDS sereies has some problems, so would this interface if possible cause even more? thanks for any input

You can network them with the NMEA network, the HDS units were designed to plug right into existing networks if you already had one in place, or you can create one.

The only "problems" I'm aware of are basically user issues, like different menu structures than in your 522 so people aren't familiar with them, and people not selecting a transducer and setting the unit up correctly. Another one is the HDS units not working with Navionics until the recent software update, but that was known about since before they hit the market. I've been really happy with my with my HDS so far.

We have the HDS-5 on sale right now, and good pricing on the HDS-7, plus Lowrance has a rebate out there too. You can see all the prices and details HERE if you want.
