Both power cord and transducer just arrived with my new hds 12. This unit came on my 2010 ranger that I bought from FLW PRO Mark Rose. This unit has run perfect the entire time it was on my rig. I had it on a RAM mount and the only time it was on the boat is on the water.
Always kept it in my office when not in use. The head unit is in perfect shape. I can tell you there is not much difference between gen1 and gen 2's. Yes they are faster switching from page to page but the 2d sonar is awesome and the gps is just as good in my opinion.I wanted a big screen for my failing eyesight and I can say the 12 is so much easier to read. Start it up and take it out and run. It would be a great upgrade at a great price. So good luck and happy fall fishing! The item "Lowrance HDS-8 Fishfinder/GPS Chartplotter Gen 1 With insight.
