Todd, I am very happy to see a Lowrance representative frequent this site. Please keep up the good work. To me, you are like E.F Hutton.. When you speak, I listen!

Dude, three panel views on my 7's! Yup I'm stoked.

Oh and by the way, I PM'd you awhile back about water in my HDS-7. Good news was that the Warranty transferred to me and they replaced the unit completely. I have heard bad things about Lowrance Customer Service in the past, but my experience over the last month and a half was actually extremely good. Keep improving and you will knock HB's out of the water.

Cool all the way around. I remember our PMs, glad it worked out.
