New Features


New, FishReveal™ smart
target viewing for Elite-Ti, HDS Carbon and Gen3

Combines crystal clear CHIRP sonar fish targets with superior, high-resolution views of bottom detail, structure and bait fish. A revolutionary new way to look at your fish finder.

FishReveal™ is a massive leap in fish finding technology.

Boosting solid sonar returns and minimizing weaker ones results in clearly separated large fish targets from smaller bait fish and bait schools.

9 new, High-Visibility colour schemes for dramatic definition on HDS Carbon

Dynamic color range and tone strength result in high-visibility contrast never before seen in scanning fish finders. Nine new colour schemes display refined detail.

FishReveal™ + high-visibility colour schemes = unmatched target identification for HDS Carbon

Sonar technology that delivers clean fish targets you want to catch. Fish have nowhere to hide. Maximize your screen view.



See the difference
using high visibility

The new high visibility color scheme delivers industry leading quality, clarity and range with near-photographic images to each side and below your boat.

Amazing new StructureScan® 3D colour range and tone strength
for HDS Carbon

Increased intensity of illumination and color mapping techniques produce a wider range of color that enhances the image.

C-MAP® Easy Routing and Navionics® Dock-to-Dock Autorouting

Faster and easier navigation. Automatic route planning plots the shortest and safest course based on a boat’s draft, beam and height, avoiding landmass, shoals and other fixed navigational hazards.

C-MAP charts now get a major upgrade in readability.

The colour scheme is much easier on the eye. Easy to tell where the boat is in relation to a channel, ledges and drop-offs. complementing far more data than other charts, C-MAP charts now get a major upgrade in readability.


Is HDS Carbon a significant upgrade over HDS Gen3?

It’s definitely worth the purchase consideration for HDS Carbon. HDS Gen3 set the bar high for the competition to chase. HDS Carbon offers unbeatable benefits that raise the standard even higher. With ultra-wide SolarMAX™ HD in-plane switching screen technology providing vibrant, accurate color representation and true 1080 HD resolution on 16-inch displays, all new FishReveal™ smart target viewing and new dynamic high-visibility color views of fish, structure, bottom detail and bait, HDS Carbon has put Lowrance back in its rightful place as the undisputed industry leader in imaging sonar.
