  1. Makes sense. The internal seems to work better anyways. Thanks for the info guys.
  2. The unit freezes up. Also, the unit went to a white screen with black lines all over it. I have tried to change from internal GPS to External GPS. How the heck do you do that? I cannot find it on my unit
  3. It was working with my LCX27 and LMs522. I called Lowrance and they said that the 3000 external antenna is compatible. So either something is screwed up with my NEMA 2000 backbone or my antenna is bad.
  4. Well I got the 10 in and it does not work with my external GPS puck. I have the 3000 puck on there. Not sure if the gen 1 HDS10 is compatible or if I need to add a power nod or more NEMA connections. The internal GPS and sonar are working. I plug in the Small black cord and it screws up my unit. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Thanks Captain Musky. You answered my question. I do not have the LSS 1 or 2. I knew about the Ethernet cable and was planning on buying it. You are correct. The previous units were linked to the 3000 with the NEMA. So, it sounds like I should be fine. Thanks again. I am picking up my unit tonight and will test it out.
  6. I currently have an LCX27 and an LMS522 with a LGC3000 antenna on my boat. I have a transducer in the back and one on the trolling motor. It appears that there is two NEMA red/black connections under the drivers side. My question is this: I am purchasing a Lowrance HDS10 and an HDS7 both gen 1. Will I be able to just replace the head units and everything will work or do I need to add NEMA connections or anything else? I have no clue if I need to purchase additional items. I read something about having to add a Power node to get both HDS units to work. Any help would be greatly a
  7. Thanks all. You all make valid points. I have owned Ranger boats and I do know what the models are. After running all the numbers it really doesn't make sense to buy it. Even know it is a good deal. It will end up being the same price as if I bought one in Minnesota. I will hold off until the right boat get's posted. Thanks again.....
  8. Ouch....it is an 18ft Ranger Reata 2013. Can get a great deal but with shipping it might not be worth it. They must charge more for boats then they do cars. I have had friends who have shipped cars from $600-$1800 from Florida and California. Unfortunately, those people don't ship boats.
  9. Has anyone purchased a boat from down south and had it shipped to Minnesota? I am looking to purchase a boat from Arizona and have it shipped to Minnesota. Looking for approximate prices and recommendations for doing it. Thanks.
  10. Sounds like everyone likes it so far. Well, I am going to order it today. Thanks for the replies. Nice to hear from people that actually use a product.
  11. Yeah, I suppose that is the ticket with the ice anchor. The room in the house is what I need along with the portability. TYGUY02, let me know how the house works for you if you can, thanks!
  12. Does anyone have this house or a similar one? What do you think of the house? It seems to me that this house would be a pain in the butt to set up in any type of wind. I need a bigger house for my two boys and myself. I already have a smaller otter flip over for myself but am looking for a bigger one for the family. Any reviews good/bad would be appreciated.
  13. I was at the DMV yesterday to register my Ranger Reata 1850 trailer. The guy working said I only needed a perminant sticker for my trailer. Well, the sticker is only good for trailers GVW up to 3000LBS. I am pretty sure that my boat fully loaded is more like 4000lbs plus. Anyone else have a perminant sticker when you should have plates on the trailer? I really don't want to re-purchase a new registration at this point. I don't imagine the DMV will give me a refund and issue the correct plate at this point. Has anyone been stopped or delt with the DMV on this issue?
  14. Well, now the guy will not drive to Chicago. He said he wants the money before he drives it to Chicago. That's not going to happen. Looks like I need to look for a boat local!
  15. Price is 26K. The problem is that I have to drive 12 plus hours to pick it up. I have a ton of pictures and the boat looks mint. They guy is also willing to bring it to his dealer to have it tested. As far as water testing, I don't think that will be able to happen. I have two days to drive down and get it and get it home. My driving buddy only has two days. I spoke to a Ranger dealer who said if it was him he would drive down and get it in a heart beat. If the condition is what he states it is.
