The Gen3 Lowrance High Definition System (HDS) combines a brighter, multi-touch display and an enhanced processor with leading-edge fishfinder technologies, including CHIRP Sonar, Broadband Sounder, DownScan Imaging, and Trackback view. The Lowrance Gen3 Series utilizes the latest advances in navigation and user interface, incorporating an internal 10Hz GPS, dual microSD card slots, touch-plus-keypad operation, and built-in wireless connectivity, all in one easy-to-use display.
Simple-To-Use Lowrance Interface
The HDS Gen3 Series features an easy-to-see, LED-backlit, widescreen display that provides both multi-touch, touchscreen, and keypad options for lightning fast, fingertip access to all HDS features. Quickly make adjustments with an enhanced, faster processor and intuitive user-interface features like scrolling menus, cursor assist, snap-to-setting markers, and preview panes with quick-touch slider bars. Stay connected with integrated wireless connectivity. With the Lowrance GoFree App you can view and control select HDS Gen3 displays wirelessly using supported tablets or smartphones. Features a single ethernet networking port and Micro-C connection for NMEA 2000 devices.
Latest Advances in Navigation
The internal GPS antenna with 10Hz position update rate provides ultra-accurate trails, smoother chart performance, and maximum position accuracy. It supports WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS corrections. The HDS Gen3 includes built-in Insight USA charts for Coastal and Inland US waters and a world background reference map. Dual microSD-card slots let you upgrade to the most expansive selection of compatible cartography on the market, including Insight, Navionics, C-Map, and more. HDS Gen3 models are also compatible with the online Insight Genesis map-creation service, which allows users to make custom, high-resolution contour maps from recorded sonar logs, including bottom-hardness and vegetation overlays.
You can also view two charts simultaneously, in 2D or 3D perspective view, with independent control, range, and overlay capabilities.
Leading-Edge Fishfinder Technologies
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.
Built-in Broadband Sounder: Display and mark gamefish, baitfish, and structure at higher speeds and at greater depths - from 1' to over 3,000'.
TrackBack: Review and save key hot spots. Scroll-back thru sonar or StructureScan HD imaging history to review structure or fish targets and pinpoint the location with a waypoint.
StructureScan 3D: Powered by multi-beam sonar technology, StructureScan 3D produces images of underwater terrain and targets in stunning, high-resolution, 3-dimensional views.
StructureScan 3D Advantages
• 3-Dimensional Views, Improved DownScan Imaging, and StructureScan HD
Contours below the water's surface are shown up to 600' port and starboard with incredibly detailed, high-definition views. StructureScan 3D provides multiple views, including 2-dimensional DownScan Imaging and StructureScan HD, and the realistic 3-dimensional views.
• Clearest Possible SideScan Views
The StructureScan 3D transducer design has been enhanced with an increased number of sensors for greater imaging performance.
• Complete Control Of Underwater Views
Using preset virtual point-of-view angles or ScanTrack pan-tilt-rotate control mode, you can adjust the view and perspective beneath your boat. Combine custom HD and 3D views to increase your understanding of how fish relate to cover and to search fishing areas more effectively.
• The Leading Edge Scanning Reference Instantly Shows Coverage Area
Leading Edge provides a graphical illustration of sonar beams as they intersect with bottom contours. The most recently scanned area is represented by red fan-shaped markers directly under the boat. Leading Edge also includes a depth scale that shows greater depth detail as you zoom in, giving you a better sense of target depth.
• SelectScan Target Identification Makes Fish Detection Easier
Automatically shades fish-holding cover and suspended targets in a color that contrasts the selected color palette, making target identification quicker and easier than ever before.
• Vertical Enhancement Makes Even The Slightest Depth Changes More Visible
This feature is a user-selectable scale that applies onscreen emphasis to vertical drops and crucial depth contour changes, making them easier to identify relative to the surrounding underwater terrain.
• 3D Waypoint Overlay Creates A Virtual Buoy Marker
Revisiting fishing areas, structure, and other underwater features is easy with the Waypoint Overlay feature. Use the waypoint keypad to save a waypoint at the boat location, or switch to cursor mode, and save a waypoint over specific targets, baitfish, or cover.
• Extra Ethernet Expansion
The StructureScan 3D module supports connectivity for up to 3 networked devices.
