The next generation of HDS is here. The new Lowrance Gen3 HDS-7 Fishfinder/Chartplotters feature a faster processer combined with leading fish finding technologies and an improved user interface.
Each HDS-12 comes equipped with integrated CHIRP Sonar, Broadband Sounder, StructureScan HD, DownScan Imaging and Trackback features. This hi-tech generation advances the award-winning Lowrance target separation by combining simultaneous use of cutting-edge CHIRP sonar technology and advanced StructureScan HD sonar imaging to produce unparalleled views of fish holding near the bottom and around structure.
The specially-tuned, visibly better 12-inch LED-backlit, multi-touch widescreen display also delivers better definition of sonar returns, dynamic dimensionality in menu elements and a layered, strong and subtle color scheme for striking on-screen detail.
The exclusive new interface allows you to fully control functions through either multi-touch or full key pad operation depending on user preference and on-the-water conditions. Scrolling menus, cursor assist, snap-to setting markers and innovative preview panes with quick-touch slider bars also make operation faster and more intuitive.
The Internal GPS Antenna (select models only - see chart below) with 10Hz position update rate provides ultra-accurate trails, smoother chart performance and maximum position accuracy. Equipped with built-in Insight USA charts for Coastal and Inland US, it supports WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS corrections and is compatible with the most expansive selection of cartography on the market.
-Built-in CHIRP Sonar delivers greater sensitivity, improved target resolution and superior noise rejection for clearer, easy-to-see bait fish and game fish targets. It also delivers multiple CHIRP and Broadband Sounder frequencies from a single transducer.
-Built-in StructureScan HD sonar imaging allows you to enjoy picture-like 180-degree views of structure and fish below your boat. (Requires optional StructureScan HD transducer.)
-Built-in Broadband Sounder displays and marks gamefish, baitfish and structure at higher speeds and at greater depths - from 1 to over 3,000 feet.
-DownScan Overlay technology overlays DownScan Imaging onto CHIRP Sonar or BroadBand Sounder.
-TrackBack to review and save key hotspots. You can scroll-back thru sonar or StructureScan HD imaging history to review structure or fish targets and pinpoint the location with a waypoint.
-SpotlightScan Sonar ready – optional add-on delivers a new level of angler-controlled surround-scanning view to provide picture-like images of key fishing areas.
-StructureMap HD capability – Use live or recorded StructureScan HD logs to create stunning underwater images of lakes, rivers or seafloor. StructureMap can be viewed as an overlay, and toggled on and off to provide the ultimate in situational awareness in relation to both chart and bottom detail.
-Plug-and-play compatible with add-ons such as SpotlightScan Sonar, Broadband Radar, SonicHub Marine Audio, SiriusXM Marine Weather and audio, Class B AIS and DSC VHF, as well as, the recently released SmartSteer control for MotorGuide Xi5 electric-steer trolling motors and the Lowrance Outboard Pilot.
