Lowrance HDS Gen2 v2 software update – initial impressions – update 1

This is just a quick “flash” šŸ™‚

I updated my HDS G2 Touch – and all went well. GoFree works perfect like on my NSS8.

The first thing I tried šŸ™‚ was of course Map sharing between NSS8 and HDS G2 Touch – and it works! Impressive and very nice!

Lets see if my problems with “device configuration resets” have been solved.

Update:

Well – Map sharing also works with Structure Scan Maps – my NSS8 has the Navionics maps – and the HDS G2 has my StrucureScan (now HD) maps. And the HDS happily shares those with the NSS – while getting Navionics Charts the other way. Neat – but it seems like I have to reboot after adding a new structure scan map to make it available to the NSS.

And it does seem like my twin engine device configuration stays in place – but too early to tell for certain.
