Default Lowrance HDS Gen 3 9

Hey I just purchased the gen 3 bundle. I added the point-1 receiver with it do I need this? Thanks for the help.

The point one includes a directional compass which orients your boat on the chart even when you are not moving. You need that if you are overlaying radar but it's handy either way. If you are making maps, make sure you have the point one mounted as close to the transducer as possible to lessen the margin of error that you would get if there were a 10 to 15 ft difference between the transducer and the head unit.
