Default Can you use a Pathfinder Radar with Lowrance HDS-8 Gen2

Just purchased a Lowrance HDS-8 Gen 2 with side scan.

Then I got this bright idea. I love my Raymarine Pathfinder radar (but wouldn't mind getting rid of the rl70crc display). Being that the HDS-8 Gen 2 has the new super fast processor for the express purpose of being able to support radar without slowing down the other functions (gps, fishfinder and sidefinder) of the HDS unit (HDS Gen1 slows down with any radar connected).

Can I directly connect my Pathfinder Radar OR even buy an adaptor letting me connect the Pathfinder Radar directly to the HDS-8 Gen2?



It has HSB and Seatalk

No way Jose! On the upside, you can always sell your Pathfinder setup to us which may help you with paying for a new radar...
