HDS-9 Gen 2 Touch is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplicity at it's BEST! I have been using the HDS-9 Gen2 Touch and 2 HDS-7 Gen2 Touch units on my boat for over a year and, I must say this is the best. Great screen resolution and the ability to share data over all 3 MFD's through networking is fantastic. The Touch screen affords you navigation through the menu system with far less key strokes as required with keypad models. I also networked the Point-1 GPS and enjoy very quick and accurate positioning over all three Touch units. I won't fish/boat without these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally: a useful plotter. After some years of frustration with another brand of plotter, I asked for help from our local "bricks n mortar" marine electronics store. They allowed me trial fit several units on our binnacle guard and check for compass interference and the Lowrance 9" touch completely passed the test.The other major brands cause major (!) compass interference and flunked. We are cruising now for a month in Canada waters and really like the integration of radar and plotter on the same screen. While this device is certainly capable of complex things, the best part is the way you can return to the main nav. screen with a simple touch. That's vital to regain situational awareness.This unit seems to have been actually tested by some real-world boaters before release. That's rare these days... So far all of the network connections seem robust and well planned, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best GPS/Sonar unit I've ever owned! I purchased a HDS-9 Gen2 Touch with my new boat last Spring and I continue to be very happy with my decision. As a Walleye tournament angler I rely heavily on the performance of my electronics to aide me in locating fish. The ease of operation and reliable operation allow me to focus on setting the hook and reeling in the Walleye. The response time of data and the clarity and crispness of the screen is far superior compared to the competition. I'm so satisfied with my HDS-9 Gen2 Touch I added a HDS-7 Gen2 to my bow and networked them together. Having both regular sonar and StructureScan on both the dash and bow is amazing! Both are great units and help me catch more fish. Thanks Lowrance!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from much better than the flashers that i started with! Over the years your products have improved my fish catching ability greatly . They have helped me to learn and understand the lakes that I fish . I wish they had been available back in the good old days . The only thing that I think needs for Lowrance to address are the operation manuals they are hard to understand . Continue the goods products you manufacture and i will continue to upgrade if possible

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best money I ever spent on finhing Eq. I Looked at this system for a long time because of the cost. Now that I purchased itand picked up the subscription of insight Genesis I know this system is better than what I expected. I still have a lot to learn and cant wait to get back on the water to learn more about the system. The first time out on the water I always fished an area with the HDS9 I learned I needed to be 50' out from where I was fishing and when I made the change we caught more fish than I ever caught on that spot in 2 Hr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best fish finder on the market I also have a hummingbird and the lowrance puts it to shame. Lowrance has a better product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alarms need Volume Control! Overall, this unit is awesome. However, the anchor alarms and off course alarm volume cannot be controlled as it was on my old Lowrance product. If you rely on an Anchor Drift alarm while in the Islands, look elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big screen feel, with a small screen price. I have two 9 Touches for about a year, they are easy to use, with great screens for looking at the bottom, started out with the LSS1, then upgraded to the LSS2. Only dislike like is not being able to use the temp option from the LSS2 transducer.
