Sail-World.com : Lowrance HDS Gen2 on its way

Lowrance HDS Gen2 on its way

Following the worldwide success of the Lowrance High-Definition System (HDS) series of multifunction displays, HDS Gen2 is on its way.

With double the memory and twice the processor speed, Lowrance HDS Gen2 delivers enhanced responsiveness, faster start-up and menu operation, along with lightning-fast chart panning and zooming speeds.

The new HDS Gen2 also features 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 favorite boating, fishing and diving areas.

Offering all of the award-winning benefits of the first-generation HDS series, HDS Gen2 incorporates Broadband Sounder™ technology, which delivers peerless echo clarity, sensitivity and target separation to help anglers find more fish. Lowrance’s unique 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 remarkable mapping functionality, including support for the full-range of Navionics cartography. The built-in graphics engine, 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 (12.7cm), HDS7 (16.3cm), HDS8 (21.3cm) and HDS10 (26.4cm) 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.

Combining true high-definition sonar, charting and radar in a best-in-class display and interface, the flexible HDS Gen2 – as with its predecessor – protects against obsolescence to ensure future expansion capability for next-generation Lowrance technologies.

The Lowrance HDS Gen2 series will be available to consumers in the first quarter of 2012. RRP from AU$899 for the HDS-5x Gen2 (including 83/200kHz transducer).
