You need to purchase a EP 60 fuel flow meter. Once you have it installed in your boat, you need to monitor it. You set it up under NMEA DEVICES on your setup menu,

Make sure it is completely powering down and you are not just dimming the brightness.
Are you powering off by holding down the power button until shutdown, or are you choosing power off from the popup menu and pressing ENT. Go with pressing ENT on the power off option. If you are completly powering it down for sure, there is probably a malfunction and you'll need to get it taken care of.

Unplug the power cable, and then plug it back in...does the HDS-7 turn on by itself now? If yes, there is a probably short in the keypad, likely due to water intrusion. You'll need to contact Lowrance support at 800-324-1356 or you can email them by going to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Support/Product-Support/Contact/ to get it taken care of.
Give them your serial number and name and address and phone number in the email to hopefully speed up the process.

SOURCE: Can I use my existing transducer(1000 watt tilted

As long as the connection is the same.....maybe. The difference will be the angle of beam from boat to bottom. May not cover the same area...or you could loose zoom etc. something will be different.

SOURCE: How does my Lowrance HDS-5

To connect a LRA 2400 to a Lowrance HDS-5 sounder/chartplotter, you can run an ethernet RJ45 cable from your Radar Processing box to the HDS-5 unit. You will need an adaptor cable for the RJ 45 cable to hook into the HDS-5 head unit. This is part no 000-0127-56.

As for the different transducer pinouts, I am not sure what transducer you have now so I cannot say if there is any kind of converter plug available, however, the HDS-5 units do seem to run best using the transducers that are made for them. Your best option may be to buy the transducer that is made for them, and this will directly connect to the display unit.

Hope that helps!

The manual says 10 AMP on page 29, but lowrance says to use 3 amp. I have fried 2 hds-5's using a 7 amp which made me call lowrance of course they said that the documentation is in correct. Probably not the the thing to be incorrect about.

I want to unlock the geofencing on a lowrance hds7 sounder/gps unit which i purchased from usa and want it to work in australia


Hi mrcrommo,

The Lowrance hds 7 sold in the US is purported to be worldwide, but isn't. Users outside the US are having problems with the geofencing. Have heard that you need to send your unit back and trade it in on a worldwide unit.
It could be that Lowrance has come up with a software update. You could check with support on www.lowrance.com to see what they have. Maybe a new card would do it.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

I own a lowrance hds 7 and it doesn't power on. Have any ideas what to do? Where to send for repair?


Test your Lowrance HDS 7 on different power sources e.g. on another motorboat to find out whether this is the problem of the boat's power supply or the HDS 7 itself - this advice will only help you to determine whether to call the boat-repairman or the lowrance hds 7 seller warranty service.

You need to wait for a fix from Lowrance on the HDS units. Supposedly, a new software update is planned for May 15th 2009 to address this.
