How is a Lowrance Gen2 Touch different than a regular Gen2?
Other than the touch screen, there are several differences between the HDS Gen2 and the HDS Gen2 Touch lines: 1. HDS Gen2 Touch features an incorporated StructureScan module in the head unit, eliminating the need to mount the box inside the boat; the HDS 12 and 9 Gen2 Touch models have two Ethernet ports on the back, as well as supporting video in (with the use of an optional input cable); and HDS Gen2 Touch is capable of auto adjusting StructureScan contrast.
How do I access split screens?
Split screens can be done in one of two ways: First way, you can press and hold the icon you would like to split (You will then be provided with all possible half and half split combinations). Or, User defined splits can be created.
How often do we need to re-calibrate the screen? Are their certain conditions when this should be done?
The screen does not need to be calibrated often. However, should your screen need to be calibrated doing so is very simple. Just press and hold the waypoint key during the power on process. You will then be taken to a nine-point calibration screen.
