HDS Carbon follows on from the ever popular HDS Gen2 and Gen3 ranges, with industry-leading features such as Navico's new, wider-viewing SolarMAX HD touchscreen display, dual Channel CHIRP and super fast Dual Core processor – which has twice the RAM of the HDS Gen3. This means you'll be able to see StructureScan 3D, 3D charting, Radar and structure overlay all at the one time.
    Due for release March 2017.

  • Elite 9 Ti and 12 Ti have also been unveiled, expanding upon Lowrance's popular Elite Ti range. The 9 and 12 boast bigger, brighter touchscreen displays with high-end functions and features, plus the ability to connect to your MotorGuide Xi5 Trolling motor and more.
    Elite 9 Ti now available – Elite 12 Ti available March 2017.




  • Simrad's NSS Evo3 is the next evolution up from NSS Evo2. A powerful display built for sportfishers, the Evo3 also features the new high res. SolarMAX HD display, as well as a built-in advanced echosounder capable of displaying dual-channel CHIRP, ForwardScan, SideScan, DownScan and StructureScan 3D imaging. To boot, you can also integrate with your Simrad Halo or 3G/4G Radar.
    Available end March 2017.

  • Simrad's followed its GO7 XSE up with GO 9 XSE, with TotalScan and DownScan combos available. GO9 XSE allows you to control your onboard sound system, monitor engine data and more over NMEA 2000, as well as choose from an array of built-in Sonar technologies like broadband CHIRP, ForwardScan and Down Imaging.

  • New from B&G, the Vulcan 9 FS boasts a fully integrated electronics package with all the bells and whistles for a non networkable head unit (no ethernet).

  • Last but not least, B&G Zeus3 follows the Zeus2 with high-performance electronics and a wide range of classic sail-specific functions, such as SailSteer, Sailing Time, Laylines and RacePanel, all in one easy-to-use Navigation system.
