Lowrance Software Update

Any one update a HDS Carbon to the latest software 18.1. I am just curious how it affects the overall performance of the unit. This update allows you to use the 3 in 1 transducer. New Transducer is 300 bucks. Long story short, don't want to upgrade and then have to buy new transducer. Any insight appreciated.

I've never had a problem like that with any of the Lowrance upgrades where they force you to only use one xducer. I've only seen them improve and offer good customer service. But, you might call their tech support line and ask. Most of the Firmware updates only fix glitches or provide some new feature.

You can change the transducer in the setting screen on your lowrance. You can do the update and use your same transducer.

Thanks for the info. I went ahead and called lowrance Tech services and they said the same. Didn't want to end up with a unit that is like an iphone when you update software. The new update is 18.3, I made a mistake with numbering. Has anyone went with 3 in 1 transducer? I am curious how much clearer the side and down scan is.
