HDS Gen3 fishfinder/chartplotter displays are a revolutionary step forward
for the marine electronics industry. Technology is not slowing down. Are you
keeping up? HDS Gen3 is a bottom machine that goes well beyond finding.
HDS Gen3 gives birth to an exclusive new interface that allows you to fully
control functions through either multi-touch or full key pad operation depending
on user preference and on-the-water conditions.
3D - By adding StructureScan 3D (available separately) you'll be able to
see underwater terrain and fish-holding structure in a high-resolution,
180-degree, three-dimensional view beneath your boat. StructureScan 3D is
powered by a multi-beam sonar technology that not only produces picture-like,
three-dimensional views, but also boosts the performance of StructureScan HD
imaging - providing a side-scanning range up to 600 feet on each
side of your boat.
Target Separation - This hi-tech generation advances the award-winning
Lowrance target separation by combining simultaneous use of cutting-edge CHIRP
sonar technology and our widely-held StructureScan HD or
StructureScan 3D sonar imaging to produce unparalleled views of fish
holding near the bottom and around structure.
Screens - In order to better replicate the underwater home where fish
live and how you interact with the display, Lowrance has developed and specially
tuned a visibly better screen delivering better definition of sonar returns,
dynamic dimensionality in menu elements and a layered, strong and subtle color
scheme for striking on-screen detail.
Faster Interface - To drive the latest in electronics technology the HDS
Gen3 benefits the angler by turning out the fastest HDS ever. Those keys are
made for pushing. And, we know it is important for you to feel how the touch
screen functions. A remarkably fast processor ensures that HDS Gen3 will perform
the way you fish.
Integration And System Control - The advantages of new technology dont
stop there. Total control of trolling-motor, outboard motor and entire
electronics system is now achievable in one integrated HDS system. Lowrance
SmartSteer allows seamless switching from electric-steer trolling-motor and
outboard pilot steering. Add-in any NMEA 2000 certified device and available
engine interface cables or Lowrance data sensors for a professional-level system
that is effortless-to-install and easy-to-use.
Enhancing your time on-the-water, GoFree wireless download and upload of
maps, new software and cool new fishing apps extends your control into a cloud
enabled digital shopping experience.
