  1. If I can my idea on this. If tou don't want to spent to much money and for the kind of fishing you do, there is a Lowrance or Simrad transducer that can fit youre needs. It's the HST-DFSBL; it's a 50/200 khz that offer 29 deg. at 50 khz good to find fish between the bottom and top and 12geg. At 200 so very good for bottom fishing. With the Simrad or the Lowrance you can use both at the same time splitting your screen in has a example 3 panels: 1 for mapping, 1 for the 200 and the other using 50 Part #: 000-0106-77 Thee is also the same but with the downscan so you can have the function: Fish Reveal Part #: 000-12569-001
  2. The best are the Good Year Endurance
  3. You can mix any generation starting with a Gen3 and up. Legacy Mode is enabled automatically when: • When HDS Gen3, SonarHub or StructureScan 3D are not updated with the latest software • An legacy HDS Gen1, Gen2 or Gen2 Touch unit is on the network To determine if your system is in Legacy mode, refer to the Sonar settings menu.
  4. There is a new function that just out on the Navionics app, it's track your buddy If you want to learn more: https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/boating-app-meet-on-the-water-with-the-connections-feature
  5. If you put a waypoint it's private; if you put a icone from the community esit then it's share
  6. Something to consider is to look at the new Elite FS (Fishing System) close to a HDS but a lot cheaper. You can get 2 units for almost the cost of a HDS Live https://www.lowrance.com/lowrance/type/fishfinders-chartplotters/elite-fs-9-ai-3-in-1-us/
  7. The esiest thing to do is to add a axle on your actual trailer; thats what a friend of mine did
  8. There is some very interesting new things coming from Lowrance, specially a new unit just below the HDS Live at a more affordable price. It's the new Elite FS (fishing system) with some excellent mapping include in the unit, can control autopilot, the new transducer Active Target and more Here a short introduction video: Nice introduction on the new Lowrance Elite FS (fishing system) and on the new Active Target https://youtu.be/zLWWLC49Id8
  9. I'm running 1 Simrad GO 7 , 1 Simrad EVO 7", 1 HDS LIVE 12" and another 9" with a autopilot on 2 AGM 31 and 27 ; at 1st I had only 1 31 and by the end of the day it wasn't enough but adding a 2nd battery cure all the problem
  10. Yes it works with a hds. I have another guy inline so I will let you kmow if you are still interested
  11. It's both. What unit are you using?
  12. Brand new never register a Navionics+ that cover Canada and USA Price: $150. To youre door.
  13. If they are save they will show on the card with this extension: .usr
  14. Perfect set-up 31 size battery are a must and 2 are better then 1 your kit is complete , coed with the isolator
  15. I post the answer on another website but I am posting here also, maybe it can help somebody else: As stated, using a kicker when your main engine use an electric power steering pump will discharge your main battery because everytime that the kicker turn the pump is activated and it draw a lot of amp. This is a major problem specially if you want to use an autopilot. To start you need two batteries a kicker kit from Mercury and a isolator. The part# for the kit is: 8M0149838 which I understand does NOT include an isolator. For Verado models, an isolator that can handle the FULL OUTPUT of the alternator is recommended, so the recommend part# for the isolator is: 8M6006077 (140 Amp Isolator). The kit and isolator enables the Verado to charge both batteries ...as needed . Done correctly, it charges the start battery first then the house as needed. One is the start battery and one is what we call the "house" battery. The "house" battery is needed for a boat with Verado power steering and a kicker. The kicker doesn't put out enough charge to keep up with the amount being used by the power steering pump when the Verado is not running but you are using the Verado power steering on the kicker. A kit installed (sold by Mercury) enables the Verado to charge which ever battery needs it Tournament style boats with huge electronics and lots of them, also incorporate the "house" battery .
  16. I ask a question but you are not giving me a clear answer. What size of Verado are tou running? Verado’s can use 2 kind of steering: hydraulic and electric hydraulic; they are 2 differents animals
  17. It’s not an electronic power steering it’s a electric pump habitually on Verado 200 and more. I just want to be sure that you are running a electric power steering and yes if it’s the case it takes a lot of battery when you don’t run the right set-up
  18. When you say Verado and power steering do you mean a hydraulic or a electric power steering?
  19. It's compatible with the Gen-2
  20. You probably meant $1300 for the hydraulic and $1600 for the cable
