Lowrance HDS Carbon 9 with StructureScan 3D Bundle

Lowrance HDS Carbon 9 with StructureScan 3D Bundle

Featuring a nine-inch, multi-touch SolarMAX™ HD display, HDS Carbon 9 offers unrivaled brightness and clarity, and extreme viewing angles - viewable even through polarized sunglasses. A powerful dual-core, high-performance processor, delivers the fastest sonar updates and chart redraws with no lag, easily driving built-in CHIRP sonar and StructureScan® 3D Imaging. The HDS Carbon 9 also offers touchscreen control of autopilots and shallow water anchors via integrated wireless connectivity, and supports a multitude of accessories.

With built-in StructureScan 3D, this powerful package gives freshwater and saltwater anglers a unique, three-dimensional view of fish, structure and bottom contours - making it easier to understand where fish and structure are located in relation to the boat. With StructureScan 3D, anglers spend less time searching for productive water and more time catching fish. StructureScan 3D is powered by a multi-beam sonar technology that not only produces near-photographic, three-dimensional views of underwater structure and bottom contours, but also boosts the performance of two-dimensional Downscan and StructureScan HD imaging, providing views up to 600 feet to each side of the boat. Manipulated on the screen with the swipe of a finger, just like a tablet, anglers can easily see fish, underwater structure and bottom contours on their HDS Carbon 9 navigational systems.

Now, making the best even better, Lowrance has just released a new software update. At the heart of the release is FishReveal™ and high-visibility color sonar - exciting new features that makes fish easier to see and easier to catch. The update also includes enhancements to StructureScan® 3D and StructureScan HD; the addition of C-MAP Easy Routing and Navionics® Dock-to-Dock Autorouting capability; plus, a new, easy-to-interpret C-MAP navigation palette.

FishReveal Smart Target Viewing
FishReveal is a massive leap forward in fish-finding technology that allows anglers to quickly and easily 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 low-resolution bottom and structure detail, or DownScan Imaging views that provide exceptional bottom and structure details in a photo-like image but show fish targets as tiny dots, FishReveal delivers the next level in smart-target viewing through optimized digital signal processing and transducer performance. Blending the best of data collected from the wide CHIRP cone angle and narrow, high-frequency DownScan Imaging beams, FishReveal significantly enhances sonar presentation by boosting solid sonar returns for unmatched clarity, separating large catchable fish from smaller bait fish, while providing superior, high-resolution views of bottom detail and structure, as well as eliminating the need for split-screen viewing and interpretation.

High-Visibility Color Sonar
See fish and fish-holding structure like never before with Lowrance HDS Carbon. A new high-visibility color scheme delivers industry-leading quality, clarity and range with near-photographic images to each side and below your boat. Simulating characteristics of the human eye by making full use of the dynamic color spectrum, SideScan, DownScan Imaging and StructureScan 3D now produce richer images with greatly enhanced detail and better contrast. Just as the human eye compensates for varying degrees of darkness, high-visibility color 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 100 feet away.

C-MAP Easy Routing
Get faster and easier navigation with automatic route planning. This feature simplifies route creation by automatically plotting the shortest and safest course based on the boat's draft, beam and height - creating a route around a landmass, shoals and other fixed navigational hazards. Autorouting requires a C-MAP MAX-N+, or optional Navionics+ or Navionics® Platinum chart.

C-MAP Navigation Palette
C-MAP charts just got a major upgrade in readability that is most apparent near shore, where the colors used for land, docks, anchorage areas, water, and channels are nicely differentiated and water contour lines are distinct. The new palette makes it easier to tell where the boat is in relation to a channel, navaid, ledges and drop-offs, or a point of land. The color scheme is also much easier on the eye.

With all of this powerful functionality, the HDS Carbon 9 with StructureScan 3D Bundle fish finder/chartplotter is perfect for anglers looking for a bigger display that delivers. ARV: $2,599.00.
