Lowrance HDS Live - what's the difference?
Lowrance HDS series has come a long Way since it first graced our shelves in February 2009. Live takes the HDS series to the next level, pushing the boundaries and setting a whole new precedent in marine electronics.
It picks up where HDS Carbon left off, but adds a new range of mindblowing features and LIVE Sonar views. (Seriously, when we saw some of the first release images here at CH Smith Marine, our jaws dropped).
This is set to be the gamechanger, and the images speak for themselves (see right).
Active Imaging allows you to see far more detail without sacrificing range or having to change frequencies while fishing. And that's at 800kHz! (with an optional 455kHz for those who need to see even further).
With the 3-in-1 Active Imaging Transducer (combining CHIRP/SideScan/Downscan), you'll be able to see structure, Fish and bottom composition in clearer detail than ever before – even from afar. The 3-in-1 offers more clarity and Resolution than StructureScan HD, and allows you to view multiple angles all at once.
Then if you pair Active Imaging with optional Transducer (ESA703), its 3D enhancement brings even more detail and structure definition, with reduced Noise level and better ability to isolate specific depths. Compare for yourself in the images to the right!
Multiple Structure views
With HDS Live, you'll no longer be limited to just 2 structure views – with the ability to display Downscan, Sidescan and three D side by side so you can view them all at a glance!
And with HDS Live you can split your screen up to 6 ways, taking full advantage of your screen real estate. Even better, it's all on a beautiful SolarMAX HD display, giving you the best Resolution and viewing experience.
LiveSight Forward & Down
There's the ability to integrate with Simrad open array Radar (3/4/6ft sizes), SmartSteer for on screen control of your MotorGuide Xi5, or SonicHub to enjoy all your favourite music onboard.
You can also access your smartphone directly from your HDS Live through its Livecast function using an Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter Cable – and display mapping, satellite and weather app imagery from your phone – all in the one split screen!
With so many jaw-dropping new features, HDS Live is one to look out for – so if you're looking to upgrade your electronics set-up, why not check one out today?
