I just recently came across newer information about the Lowrance HDS units and their NMEA-2000 support for various data groups. Here is a listing of the NMEA-2000 parameter group numbers that the current HDS Gen 2 devices can support. I believe that NMEA has been encouraging its members to publish this information about their NMEA-2000 certified products. It is great to see Lowrance provide this information about the HDS units. I found this information on the Lowrance website, but due to the manner in which it was presented it was impossible for me to simply link to it. I have taken the time to transcribe the information and present it here.

The HDS-series device can typically send the following NMEA-0183 sentences on the NMEA TALKER port (or output port):

NMEA-0183 SENTENCES for HDS Series

GPS Related
--GGA
--GLL
--GSA
--GSV
--VTG
--ZDA

Navigation Related
--AAM
--APB
--BOD
--BWC
--BWR
--RMC
--RMB
--XTW

SONAR Related
--DBT
--DPT
--MTW
--VLW
--VHW

Compass Related
--HDG

Wind Related
--MWV

MARPA Related
--TLL
--TTM

The above list of NMEA-0183 sentences that can be sent from an HDS on the TALKER output was deduced by inspecting the menu option that configures the data to be sent. This menu is available as shown in

http://continuouswave.com/whaler/reference/HDS_Menu.html#NMEA0183

I am looking for more information on the NMEA-0183 sentences that the HDS devices can accept from other devices. I do not believe this is explicitly documented in the Lowrance literature.
