Details & Specs

Welcome to the next generation! Lowrance® HDS-7 Gen 2 Fishfinder / GPS Chartplotter. Everything you loved about the original HDS-7, in a faster, easier-to-use package!

Back for round 2! Everything you loved about the original HDS-7... like the 6.4" full-color screen, GPS waypoints, and innovative charting features... it's all here. But this time around, Lowrance® went back to the drawing board to create a simpler, faster, more intuitive interface that makes the HDS-7 Gen 2 one of the easiest all-in-one units to navigate on the water today! And, it's sized perfectly for smaller crafts like kayaks.

The HDS-7 Gen 2 comes available as a stand-alone unit (great if you already have a compatible Lowrance transducer, or would like to add another interface to your existing set-up).

  • 6.4" 480 x 640 16-bit color Super VGA SolarMAX™ PLUS TFT display for surprisingly crisp, clear views all hours of the day, even in bright sunlight and wide angles
  • Lightning-fast chart updates, panning and zooming, plus faster start-up and menu operation... much faster than the original HDS-10

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Documentation for Beginners An example of poor documentation is immediately apparent on page 4 of the manual which tells one to go to this web site for video tutorials. Click on Support, Tips and Tutorials it says. No such item is on the support page. The videos that are elsewhere on the site are not tutorials but sales fluff telling how great the unit is.The manual leads one through the menus telling what items will appear when you click (which you can easily find by clicking) but with no explanation of what the items do or why one would use them. For example:Page 8 and page 80 both tell about multiple "Fishing Modes" that have to do with water clarity and depth and "Ping Speed" with no hint as to what these are used for. What if you are not fishing at all. Perhaps a fisherman already knows this stuff, but I don't.There is a large section concerning gauges and dashboards with nothing about the data that is available to display.Where does this data come from? Are all the sensors that supply it part of the Lowrance or does it connect to a data bus of some kind. How would I add a sensor?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use Purchased new MDX 2072 with motor guide Xi5 trolling motor and two HDS-7 GEN 2 units networked for the bow and console. I have been fishing and guiding on the Cumberland, Barren, Green and Nolin watersheds for years and feel the future is very bright with the shared technology of lowrance and motor guide. Awaiting my gateway cabling to network the trolling motor and HDS units, will provide follow-up comments after the spring season.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Product for real users This machine absolutely does not perform as billed. Had professionally installed, set up coached by Lowrance techs. Side Scan and Structure Scan do not work in excess of 100ft Salt Water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wont turn on allready sent it back once I bought it three years ago and only have used it a handful of times because it was broke more than it was working. sent it out to have it fixed then broke again soon after it came back it wont turn on. very frustrating to have spent that kind of money for junk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very nice value I purchased a new boat and had 2 of these units installed. Previously I ran a HDS7 touch and a HDS5. The touch was easier to set than this unit, but I did not like the smudge marks using it left on the face. The 5 screen was too small for good viewing. This HDS 7 Gen 2 is a great compromise. I have learned most of the settings and its mostly good. I like it a lot.
