Are you looking for the little fish symbols?
Press MENU, down arrow to SONAR FEATURES and press ENT. Arrow to FISH SYMBOLS and press ENT. Press EXIT twice. Any significant return in the water will now show up as a fish symbol.
Are you looking for the fish arches?
You won't get any arches unless the boat is moving and of course there are fish passing within the transducers signal. The shallower the water, the less area you are covering and less likely to get a fish return.
There is an OK guide to understanding what you see on the sonar screen at the link below. It if pretty technical but parts of it may help you out.

SOURCE: Installing the Lowrance HDS 5
You do not need the data cable connected unles you are hooking it up to other electronics, ie computer, second GPS sounder ect. You only need to conect the red to the positive on the battery and the black to the negative.

You may just need to update the softwear on the GPS, you can download it directly from Lowrance.com along with instructions on how to install it.

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.
