I am looking to buy an lowrance hds-5.. It looks really nice but I am looking for some feedback? Anybody have one or used one? I have a humminbird wide vision that at least 15 years old. I dont trust it anymore. The depths always seem wrong and it does not give me accurate depth when going more that 5 mph.

Well I don't have a 5, but I do have a 10 and I couldn't be happier. I would suggest, if you have the funds and space isn't an issue, you step up to the HDS-8. The advantage of the soft keys is very helpful, especially on busy fishing days. If not....then get the 5. You will still be very happy.

I suggest the 8 also. If you might want to got structure scann later it will work on the 8. Don't know about the 5.
