    I have Lowrance but I will eventually change back to HB.
    Been watching the used ads and offer one observation; there are many, many used Lowrance units for sale. I've yet to see a good deal on a 7" Helix or hardly any HBs for that matter.

    Reason for changing? I have an HDS toucn 7". The side scan transducer is so long and cumbersome that I took it off and sold it. The on/off button quit working. Lowrance wants $300+ dollars to swap out to a rebuilt unit. All it needs is a switch. This setup was close to $1000 new.

    I dont own either, or any for that matter, but Lowrance is a Tulsa, Ok company so I choose them!!! Because I can be at their offices in 15 minutes from my house Haha.

    I will say that I picked up a used Lowrance Hook7 triple shot for $200 and it has been a good unit. I bought it when the HDS crapped out to fill in until I decided what I wanted to do. Had it about 8 months and it was 2 years old when I bought it.

    That's as good a reason as any, maybe better. I lived close to a couple of factory tackle repair centers and you could walk in and get something fixed while you waited.

    Have you updated the software?
    It's free. Sonar units are processors, and need updates just like your phone, tablet and computer.

    My Lowrance started showing weird temps last spring. I did a soft reset and it cleared up. Slowhand is exactly right. These are basically computers and sometimes need a reboot.
    That's a quick fix. Updates take a bit more time. I'd sure try the soft reset first. It doesn't affect any info you may have saved to it.
