|Lowrance unveils next-generation HDS|

Lowrance has launched the next generation of its High-Definition System (HDS Gen2) multifunction displays.
The new models feature StructureMap view, a powerful tool that allows users to overlay and save StructureScan sonar images on a chart for review on and off the water. Paired with the LSS-1 sonar-imaging module, users can scan images directly on a chart in real-time, or create StructureMap charts of their favourite boating, fishing and diving areas.
With double the memory and twice the processor speed, Lowrance HDS Gen2 offers enhanced responsiveness, faster start-up and menu operation, along with fast chart panning and zooming speeds. HDS Gen2 incorporates Broadband Sounder technology, which delivers impressive echo clarity, sensitivity and target separation to help anglers find more fish. Lowrance’s TrackBack functionality also allows users to scroll-back in the sonar history to review structure or fish targets and pinpoint locations with waypoints – all of which is recorded to ensure valuable data is not lost.
Featuring an internal, high-sensitivity GPS+WAAS antenna, HDS Gen2 also offers mapping functionality, including support for the full-range of Navionics cartography. TurboView delivers seamless zooms and 2D-3D chart displays, striking depth views in 2D and 3D, plus high-speed panning/zooming with aerial views.
Available in fully sunlight-viewable HDS5 (12.7 centimetres), HDS7 (16.3 centimetres), HDS8 (21.3 centimetres) and HDS10 (26.4 centimetres) screen sizes, in several configurations, the HDS Gen2 series can be easily networked throughout the boat via high-speed Ethernet cabling for real-time data sharing. Along with StructureScan, HDS Gen2 also accommodates Broadband 3G Radar and the new Broadband 4G Radar, SonicHub marine audio server, and NMEA2000 networking for fuel, engine and boat-operations management solutions.
