Lowrance announces software update for HDS Carbon, Gen3 and Elite-Ti displays

LOWRANCE announced today the release of a new software update for HDS Carbon, HDS Gen3 and Elite-Ti displays that includes sonar enhancements and improvements for C-MAP charting.

At the heart of the release is FishReveal, an exciting new sonar feature that makes fish easier to see on DownScan Imaging. The upgrade also includes significant enhancements to StructureScan 3D and StructureScan HD plus a new, easy-to-interpret C-MAP navigation palette.

FishReveal Smart Target Viewing

FishReveal is a leap forward in fish finding technology that allows anglers to quickly discover how fish orient themselves in and around cover and structure, with clearly defined fish arches. Unlike traditional CHIRP views that provide strong fish targets but lack refined structure detail, or DownScan Imaging that provides photo-like images of bottom and structure details but show fish targets as tiny dots, FishReveal blends the best data from both technologies, eliminating the need for split-screen viewing and interpretation.

High-Visibility Colour Sonar

High-Visibility Colour delivers industry-leading clarity and range, with near-photographic images to each side and below your boat. By making full use of the colour spectrum, SideScan, DownScan Imaging and StructureScan 3D can now produce richer images with enhanced detail and better contrast. Just as the human eye compensates for varying degrees of darkness, High-Visibility Colour automatically enhances brightness in darker areas, while preventing overexposure in brighter areas. This extends the visible range, making it possible to see what is in the shadows close to the boat or more than 100 feet away.

C-MAP Navigation Palette

C-MAP charts has had an upgrade in readability that is most apparent near shore, where the colours used for land, docks, anchorage areas, water, and channels are differentiated and contour lines are distinct. The new palette makes it easier to see where the boat is in relation to a channel, navaid, ledges and drop-offs, or a point of land. The colour scheme is also much easier on the eye.
