Thanks for checking John and yes that does suck! Lots of folks will have a challenge with the motor in the way with the LSS HD transducer if they don't have a step or jack plate.

Hey John have you had a chance to try the LSS1 ducer with the LSS HD box? Really curious if it will give a better image than LSS1+LSS1 box

Fishton, does the LSS-2 transducer use the entire length of the transducer to use side-scanning? Or is it only a portion and the downscan utilizes it all?

Have you tried updating to the latest version and doing a hard reset afterwards? I found that really helped on my GEN1 unit. Remember to backup your waypoints etc if you go the reset route.

Now I see those lines in the pictures from the LSS1 that Fishton provided.

Hopefully they enable the ability to turn off Downscan with the LSS1.

I just finished installing the LSS1 - oh well....

Would adding the LSS2 transducer to the LSS1 box add better definition? Or is both needed to get the benefit (assuming there will be a big benefit once the sw is tweaked)?

Does that anytime no matter what the Chart setting. Even if I run w/o a map chip. Even if I do a split-zoom sonar it gets a bit choppy. Sonar doesn't seem to like sharing the window it would seem!;?
