I have the HDS Carbon 7 and I haven't needed an external Antenna. The internal antenna has worked just fine out west and I avoided having to mount the ugly one-point. Anything over 7 inches is overkill in my opinion and takes away valuable window space. You are just following a small point (or a boat icon) on a screen and not watching a movie. Get this file if you are out west.

I really like it. Theres more maps available for the Garmin its super accurate and I haven't needed an external antenna. Plus it has 2 video in sources so I can add a Flir Pathfinder 2 system down the riad, 2 SD card slots, it can control a Garmin action camera and once I figure out how it needs to be wired it has a J-1939 Canbus

My HDS 9 sits lower than my BAJA 5 did. I modified my own custom mount . From seated driving position, top of unit in even with right hand edge of hoodline so it blocks no window space at all. It also removable takes about a minute to loosen the knobs and and unplug the wires.

Yeah me and my gramps kicked around the idea of custom mounts. He has a plasma cutter so it’s easy-ish. Essentially what we are gonna do is drill into the top cubby and have to cut the brackets into an arch shape which allows us to clear the cubby. Then above the buttons(track control, flashers, etc) I’m going to use some 3M Velcro and attack a small piece of rubber that goes the full width of the Lowrance so that way on the big jarring whoops, it’s not banging into my dash, instead it’s gently kissing the rubber lol.
