I have one unit wired that I physically move from the front and back or vicesa versa with a transducer on the trolling motor and the other transducer on back about a foot away from the Lss-1 transducer which is tucked up into that little cavitation step on the back of the Champ. I used it for the first time last night in the night mode Wow physcadelic (sp) man interesting colors that dazzle the eye. So much so I had to turn the units brightness down to about half....... Whatever you decide about these units the fact is you need the biggest screen they make to utilize the structure scan to it's optimal potential. Just my .02

I'm talking about adding a 2nd LSS transducer, one TM and one stern. I don't see the point in trying to use the stern TD while up front since it's 20' behind me.

I don't get that aspect either ...I just know I went over something juicey. Ken might know why but I have not seen or heard of on on the trolling motor.

My HDS 10 at my console has an LSS-1 connected to it and the ducer for it is on the step of my Ranger under the jack plate. It reads to about 8 or 9 MPH while I'm looking around on the big motor then when I get on pad it is out of the water. This protects it as I'm running from damage via logs or other floating debris. Funny thing is even though the ducer is not in contact with the water I still get a bottom reading from my digital overlay data depth on the screen up to about 40 MPH.

My second LSS-! is mounted up front under the bow panel and the ducer for that unit is on the trolling motor in front of the skag and my 2D ducer is mounted behind the skag. This way I have both options while fishing. I filmed the Jarrett Edwards Outdoors show last summer, 2009, introducing the Structure Scan and that whole show was filmed with the LSS-1 ducer mounted on the trolling motor.

I can't agree with your comments about having a ducer mounted off the transome and trying to view it up at the bow. What good is an image from 20 feet behind you that you are moving away from? None at all unless you are on a limited budget and you could only afford one LSS-1 and you connect the Structure Scan to the front unit and watch it while you're fishing and when you see something on the screen you want to check out then hit your arrow keys to bring up the cursor and move it over the interesting object and hit waypoint and then turn around and navigate back to that object on the Chart screen. This takes a little extra time but you will still find stuff that you didn't know was there and be able to fish it.

There is a company back east that makes an aluminum protector for the LSS-1 ducer when it is mounted on the trolling motor. This is a great idea since this is a very expensive ducer, something like $350.00, and if you guys are like me I run into stuff with my trolling motor way more that I want to you want to protect it from damage.

Sorry for the delay in my response, I'm in Kauai with my wife and daughter. When I get back I'll try to remember to look up that company with the ducer protectors if you would like to know, remind me next week.

Food for thought Ken. Looks like I need to buy another transducer and just plug in the right ducer into the LSS for where ever my unit is. I ain't made outta money I can't put in another HDS10 AND ANOTHER LSS1. I can move units and change plugs a whole lotta times before I step up and buy what I already have to change my perspective by 18'7"..... So Brandon I know a machinist who will be making a new custom transducer cover do you want one also... ....??? No prints ....my Forte

I wondered if you needed 2 boxes to do it. It figures there's 1 input and 3 outputs on the thing, next year the box will have two "in's".

I'll take a cover for a motorguide and tell that machinist I need some molds modified also, easy mill work

Check out this link. Lowrance has a mount to attach the LSS-1 to the trolling motor, curved bottom for a flush mount.

http://www.lei-extras.com/store/sear...ducer+Brackets

I have an HDS 8 up front, couldn't go $600.00 more for a 10! You will need two black boxes since a module can only run one transducer. In my opinion get the LSS-1 for the front and get the largest HDS you can afford. If it's only a 7 that's where to compromise and later upgrade to a bigger screen unit. The Structure Scan on the front is more important information for me while I'm fishing than the size of the screen.

I don't know many people who put them on their trolling motor yet, but that's OK to me since it gives me an competitive advantage although it hasn't paid of yet, but it will.

Yours didn't come with a manual?

Enable "Screen Capture" and then you just press the "Light/Power" button to save whatever is on your screen. They get saved to your meters hard-drive and you can copy them to a mmc card later on. Use a card reader to transfer the image(s) to your PC, host the pics on photobucket and Bob's your uncle
