Lowrance 3D Structure Scan

The new Lowrance 3D Structure Scan can give you a high definition super wide interpretation of the data you see on traditional side and down with much more detail and fish separation than ever before with SelectScan Target Identification. And the extensions from that will be even more practical for fishermen world wide. The whole system will be $999 with a new transducer that will replace your old side/down scan transducers.

GoFree Hooked App

The new GoFree Hooked application for smartphones and tablets allows you to record fish catches with logged information and have them upload to your GoFree account and back to your Lowrance units to keep track of where you are catching fish on your Insight Genesis Maps. It also offers a cool feature to challenge buddies to a tournament where only the anglers you invite will see your catches and pictures and you can compete on the water with logged catches with your buddies for fun.

Hydrowave Mini and Hydrowave H2 Revamps

The Hydrowave H2 and Hydrowave Mini went through structural overhauls to make the nearly indestructable by the elements. These units were in water for more than a month, then left outside in 100 degree temps for weeks in windy sandy conditions and then put back underwater to prove the durability of the improvements to the existing lines and new lines.

Garmin Panoptix technology

This forward looking sonar can actually read just like a sonar except in reel time with millisecond updates so you are seeing your lure move live on the screen and seeing fish interact with and you can look down and forward and pan around with trolling motor to look out around you in realtime. The technology is impressive to see in person.

Garmin Panoptix Transducers

You can set them up differently to look forward at 45 degree angles or down to watch your lure and fish in cover vertically.
