An underwater camera is a powerful tool to confirm what’s below your boat; they speed the learning curve of understanding electronics by “truthing” what you think you’re seeing with real-time video. Positively identifying fish species, determining the size of the school, and getting eyes on that piece of structure or cover is fun and insightful.

Lowrance’s Chris Meyer shows us how you can quickly turn any Lowrance HDS Gen2 Touch (9 & 12), Gen3 and Carbon Fishfinder/Chartplotter into a monitor for your underwater camera, or should the fishing be slow, watch your favorite Disney movies via a DVD playing and the same set of cables (sarcasm).
