Additional Information
The new Lowrance HDS Carbon Fishfinder Chartplotter features an ultra-clear SolarMAX HD multi-touch display with high-bright LED backlighting and advanced anti-reflective coatings to create wider viewing angles suitable for any lighting condition.

Loaded with a dual-core, high-performance processor, the HDS Carbon delivers faster redraw speeds and quicker response times to easily power Dual-Channel CHIRP sonar, Dual Network Sounder, StructureScan, and StructureMap. The HDS Carbon utilizes integrated wireless and Bluetooth connectivity that supports the most advanced marine technology, including a Network Analyzer that notifies users when new software is available and a Service Assistant that transmits a detailed network report directly to technical support for custom hands-on assistance.

• Ultra-bright HDS SolarMAX HD displays with greater resolution and a wider range of viewing angles.
• High-performance dual-core processor for smoother navigation and faster sonar updates.
• HDS Dual-Channel CHIRP Sonar - Dual sonar-range coverage from the same transducer.
• HDS Network Dual Sounder allows you to cover more water and mark fish targets more clearly from a network of CHIRP sonar transducers.

Internal GPS Antenna - 10Hz position update rate provides ultra-accurate trails, smoother chart performance, and maximum position accuracy. Supports WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS corrections.

Precision-9 Compatible - The Precision-9 Compass supplies accurate heading and rate-of-turn information to Lowrance autopilot, radar, and navigation systems over an NMEA 2000 connection. With an internal array of solid-state sensors constantly measuring motion and orientation on nine axes, the Precision-9 also provides pitch and roll data to compatible equipment.

Extensive Mapping Options - The HDS Carbon comes with built-in C-MAP basemap charts for Coastal and Inland US waters, a world background reference map, and compatibility with the most expansive selection of cartography on the market, including Insight Genesis, Insight PRO by C-MAP, Lake Insight HD by C-MAP, C-MAP MAX-N+, Navionics, and more.

Insight Genesis Custom Maps - Make your own maps using recorded sonar logs; upload data to an Insight Genesis account; view secure custom chart details online; add optional custom color layer, vegetation, and bottom-hardness overlays; then download to a microSD card for use on the water. You can also share custom maps with the global Insight Genesis Social Map community.

Multi-View - View two charts simultaneously, in 2D or 3D perspective view, with independent control, range, and overlay capabilities.

Dual microSD Card Slots

Built-In CHIRP Sonar - Dominate with greater sensitivity, improved target resolution, and superior noise rejection for clearer, easy-to-see bait fish and game fish targets. Delivers multiple CHIRP and Broadband Sounder frequencies from a single transducer.

Dual-Channel CHIRP Sonar - Increases visible fish targets with two CHIRP frequency channels (low, medium, or high) at the same time. Keep favorite high CHIRP frequency visible for increased target separation close to the bottom or in tight schools, while at the same time viewing the low frequency channel to see more of the water column with wider and deeper cone angles.

Dual Network Sonar Views - Let you cover more water and see more fish targets from a network of CHIRP sonar transducers. Watch sonar views from a bow-mounted transducer and an in-hull or transom-mounted transducer at the same time on the same display.

Simultaneously View CHIRP Sonar with StructureScan 3D or StructureScan HD - To get the best possible view of fish and structure, below and to the sides of your boat.

Built-In Support for StructureScan HD Imaging - Enjoy picture-like, 180° views of structure and fish below your boat.

Built-In, Award-Winning Broadband Sounder - Display and mark gamefish, baitfish, and structure at higher speeds and at greater depths, down to more than 1,000 ft.

TotalScan Skimmer Transducer - The all-in-one TotalScan Skimmer Transducer receives Broadband and CHIRP sonar, plus StructureScan HD with SideScan and DownScan Imaging, making it possible to target fish and search for fish-holding structure with the same transducer. This transducer simplifies installations by allowing anglers to get all their sonar with only one transducer to install.

StructureMap Capability - Use live or recorded StructureScan 3D and StructureScan HD logs to create stunning underwater images of lakes, rivers, or the sea floor. StructureMap can be viewed as an overlay and toggled on and off to provide the ultimate in situational awareness in relation to both chart and bottom detail.

DownScan Overlay Technology - Overlays DownScan Imaging onto CHIRP Sonar or Broadband Sounder returns.

TrackBack - To review and save key hot spots. Scroll back through sonar or StructureScan HD imaging history to review structure or fish targets and pinpoint the location with a waypoint.

Easy-To-See, LED-Backlit, Multi-Touch, SolarMAX HD Display - SolarMAX HD touchscreens produce wider viewing angles from anywhere in sight. Using a unique balance of high-bright LED backlight and advanced anti-reflective coatings along with superior color accuracy and a boosted high-resolution viewing panel, a wider operating temperature range, and added moisture-proof optical layers produce clear visibility in any lighting situation.

Simple To Use - Unique Lowrance interface features quick-response touchscreen or keypad control, intuitive software, and protective coatings to deliver performance in the most rugged on-the-water conditions. Lightning-fast, fingertip access to all HDS Carbon features.

Quickly Make Adjustments - HDS Carbon has a high-performance processor that produces lightning quick redraw speeds and faster sonar updates. It easily powers the intuitive user-interface including scrolling menus, cursor assist, snap-to setting markers, and innovative preview panes with quick-touch slider bars.

Stay Connected - Integrated wireless connectivity with the Lowrance GoFree App and other onboard devices allows you to download software updates and map purchases for immediate use. You can also view and control the display wirelessly using supported tablets and smartphones.

Network All Components - Plug-and-play compatibility with Lowrance performance modules, including Broadband Radar, SonicHub2 Marine Audio, SiriusXM Marine Weather and audio, and Class B AIS and DSC VHF. Also compatible with industry-leading technologies, like Mercury VesselView Link, Bluetooth control of Power-Pole shallow water anchors equipped with the C-Monster Control System, and the SmartSteer interface, featuring control of MotorGuide Xi5 trolling motor and the Lowrance Outboard Pilot.

Wireless Diagnostic Tools - The Network Analyzer detects devices with out-of-date software, while the Service Assistant allows users to send a detailed report of networked devices to Navico Service for quicker resolution of software/technical issues.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good It is lot more faster and better than Gen2 and Gen 3

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Carbon is great but trouble with HDS Gen 3 units Love my Carbon 12 3D. Have had it for 2 seasons and it works great. Been using Lowrance for 20+ years. Very disappointed with the Gen 3 units compatibility with the Carbon when networked together. Nothing but headaches and problems. Freezing up frequently along with having to do a soft and sometimes a hard reset every time I power them up. I am not the only one experiencing this issue as there are several others that fish in our group that have this problem. I trust that Navico will eventually solve this problem and I will post future reviews on the progress. Buyer beware of this combo, buy all Carbons and do not mix with HDS gen 3. It will drive you out of your mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever I have purchased and used Lowrance units all my life and have my original "Green Box" on display in my home. The clarity, separation, GPS and features in the HDS are amazing and exceeded my expectations. Lowrance has aggressively improved the technology over the years with each new generation of units and the HDS is great example of continued dedication to be a leader

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve recently updated from a HD’s 5 which I’ve had for 8 years and am stunned at the leap in this sounder (HD’s carbon 7) can’t wait for the snapper to roll back into the bays

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the picture! I love the new screen. It's also faster than my gen 3. The new color on the screen really makes the fish pop out. Hope they keep up the good work.
    Date published: 2018-08-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Yet! I have owned an Elite 7, HDS 7 Gen 2 Touch, and an HDS 7 Gen 3, and the HDS 7 Carbon is by far the best yet. Best screen, best graphics. Best "touchability" and ease of use. Even intense sunlight doesn't slow this unit down. The wifi works great and seamlessly provides the latest updates when available. My Navionics Platinum + maps work smoothly and always on point. Highly reccomend.

    Does this model have the 3D bottom scan feature, and can I get this with additional chart software as a package deal? Thanks

    Asked by: Jeff
    This unit can work with 3D StructureScan. There is also a version that comes with the 3D StructureScan, it's part number 000-13674-002.
