LOWRANCE, a world leader in fishing electronics since 1957, recently announced 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, as well as a new, easy-to-interpret C-MAP navigation palette.

High-Visibility Colour Sonar
See fish and fish-holding structure like never before with new High-Visibility Colour Sonar exclusive to HDS Carbon. 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 dynamic colour spectrum, SideScan, DownScan Imaging and StructureScan 3D can now produce richer images with greatly 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 simultaneously 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 30m away.
C-MAP navigation palette
C-MAP charts just got a major 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 channels, navigational aids, ledges and drop-offs, or a point of land. The colour scheme is also much easier on the eye.
