Looking to buy a HDS 5 Gen2 to update and calibrate a Suzuki Engine interface.


Let me know if anyone has one they are willing to sell.

Doesn't have to be Gen2.

Doesn't have to be Gen2.  Just figured a Gen2 would be easier to find than a Gen1, and i'd probably be swayed to use it as a back-up plotter with a Navionics card to complement the CMAP given it will have a significantly faster processor.

Do you have a Gen 1 HDS for sale?

Sorry, but i'm a little confused by your post.

Gen 1 has a slow GPS update.

 2 times per second from memory.  5 times/sec if you get an external NMEA2000 antenna

Stick with your idea of Gen 2 or better.

Some people selling Gen 1's greatly overestimate their value!!
