    Re: Change time on Lowrance HDS

    I like the pun, good job! The time should update itself when you turn on your unit and get a GPS lock but it's always good to know especially when you travel and change time zones.

    Re: Lowrance HDS 7...Which One and What Add Ons?

    Yes you can get an LGC 4000, plug it into a NMEA 2000 backbone and set the HDS unit to use the external antenna. This will definatly improve your GPS function.
