NAVICO: Price Reductions in 8-inch Combo Devices

In notice there recently have been some significant price reductions from NAVICO in the 8-inch multi-function display or instrument category. In the SIMRAD line, the NSS-8 was selling for around $2,000 at a discounted price, but it has recently been selling for as low as $1,300. That is a rather dramatic $700 price reduction. In the LOWRANCE line, the HDS-8 Gen2 price has also been reduced. Previously the HDS-8 Gen2 was selling for about $1,800. It is now reduced to around $1,100 to $1,200.
The price reductions may have been made to stimulate more sales. Or, perhaps they are intended to clear out inventory in preparation for a new product announcement. In either case, the reduced prices make these models much more affordable.

It is amazing how quickly new developments in electronics technology renders prior technology somewhat antiquated, and cheaper. In 1980, I purchased my first Si-Tex LORAN receiver that was listed for $1800 for $1300. In 1988, I purchased my second Si-Tex unit (797) for $599. In 1993, I traded in my Lowrance paper graph depth sounder and a digital Eagle 7200 unit to purchase a Lowrance LMS 350A Combo depthfinder and GPS unit for a difference of about $300. I purchased my Lowrance LCX 26C HD for about $900 in 2005. I now have a Lowrance HDS-7 Gen2, and am very please with all the upgrades and innovations that it provides.
