Another Lowrance HDS Question

5 posts in this topic

Anybody have them mounted in dash? I was wondering if they would have trouble with the GPS if mounted in dash? If I replace my indash depthfinder with the HDS will the internal GPS still work???

Looking at my instruction manual, it looks like it should work since they give you the template to mount it and all.

I used a ram mount and haven't had any problems losing my GPS signal.

I would contact Lowrance in regards to this before you start to cut up tour dash. I do believe that with the internal reciever, one should try to keep it out in the open as much as possible to recieve the signal.

The HDS has a built-in gps receiver, it's at the top-center-front of the unit and is designed for in-dash mounts. And HDS units are easy to do in-dash mounts with, the bezel is removable so it's very easy to screw them in place for a good solid mount.

I have a customer that mounted an HDS-8 in-dash under a hardtop and he said he has no problem locking onto a gps signal.
