LOWRANCE has announced the release of a high-performance addition to the HDS series of fishfinders/chartplotters – Lowrance HDS Carbon.
Here are details from their release and a short teaser video:
The new Lowrance HDS Carbon adds a high-performance dual core processor, multi-touch SolarMAX HD screen, dual channel CHIRP and Network Dual Sounder to the proven features that have made HDS multifunction displays the choice of anglers at all levels. The HDS Carbon series includes 12-, 9- and 7-inch models.
Anglers in the market for a want-it-all integrated system need a processor that can smoothly drive the high-tech capabilities of HDS Carbon like StructureScan 3D with SideScan and DownScan Imaging, dual channel CHIRP sonar, StructureMap, Broadband Radar and SiriusXM Weather Chart Overlay. HDS Carbon takes processing power to an unprecedented level with a dual core processor that allows anglers to switch between applications and simultaneously view independent sonar feeds with ease.
Lowrance SolarMAX HD display technology features high-definition views and clear visibility in all conditions with the widest available range of viewing angles. The new displays are engineered to withstand higher temperatures than conventional units, offering enhanced reliability in warmer climates. The secret behind the new SolarMAX HD displays comes from the implementation of the most advanced in-plane switching (IPS) screens in fishing electronics. With superior colour accuracy and boosted high-definition reproduction, IPS screens are perfectly designed for viewing picture-like sonar images. Whether viewing menu panels or onscreen fish targets, the improved clarity and sharpness of SolarMAX HD displays are clearly evident from any angle.
HDS Carbon expands the Lowrance arsenal of sonar technology with dual channel CHIRP and Network Dual Sounder. Dual channel CHIRP enables anglers to get dual range sonar coverage from the same transducer with a dual channel CHIRP sonar transducer installed on their boat. Anglers can also cover more water and mark fish targets more clearly with Network Dual Sounder technology, which provides sonar data from a network of CHIRP transducers.
HDS Carbon supports radar, SmartSteer control of Motorguide Xi5 trolling motors and Lowrance Outboard pilot, and full engine data integration through compatibility with Mercury VesselView Link.
