Lowrance HDS Carbon

Lowrance® HDS Carbon units feature ultra-clear SolarMAX™ HD multi-touch displays with high-bright LED back lighting and advanced anti-reflective coatings to create wider viewing angles suitable for any lighting condition.

Loaded with a dual-core, high-performance processor, HDS Carbon delivers faster redraw speeds and quicker response times. With Navigation or Sounder options, along with screen sizes of 7inch, 9inch and 12inch there is a Carbon for you.

The processor can easily power CHIRP sonar, Dual Network Sounder, StructureScan® 3D, StructureMap™ and future high-powered fishfinding upgrades.

HDS Carbon features integrated wireless and Bluetooth® connectivity that supports the most advanced marine technology, including a Network Analyzer that notifies users when new software is available, and a Service Assistant that transmits a detailed network report directly to technical support for custom hands-on assistance.

What's New With HDS Carbon

  • Ultra-bright HDS SolarMAX™ HD displays with greater resolution and a wider range of viewing angles
  • High-performance dual-core processor for smoother navigation and faster sonar updates
  • HDS Dual-Channel CHIRP Sonar – coming soon: will require a dual-channel CHIRP sonar transducer
  • HDS Network Dual Sounder – cover more water and mark fish targets more clearly from a network of CHIRP sonar transducers

Lowrance HDS Carbon Navigation advantages

Internal GPS antenna

With 10Hz position update rate provides ultra-accurate trails, smoother chart performance and maximum position accuracy. Supports WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS corrections.

Precision-9 compatible

The Precision-9 Compass supplies accurate heading and rate-of-turn information to Lowrance® autopilot, radar and navigation systems over an NMEA 2000®connection. With an internal array of solid-state sensors constantly measuring motion and orientation on nine axes, the Precision-9 also provides pitch and roll data to compatible equipment.

Lowrance HDS Carbon Sonar advantages:

Built-in CHIRP Sonar

Dominate with greater sensitivity, improved target resolution and superior noise rejection for clearer, easy-to-see bait fish and game fish targets. Delivers multiple CHIRP and Broadband Sounder frequencies from a single transducer.

StructureScan 3D

Integrated support for StructureScan 3D Imaging, which allows anglers to see fish, structure and bottom contours in a stunning, three-dimensional view that gives them a better understanding of where fish and structure are located in relation to their boat. Requires optional StructureScan 3D module and transducer.

Dual network sonar Views

These views allow for covering more water and seeing mark fish targets from a network of CHIRP sonar transducers. Watch sonar views from bow-mounted transducer and the in-hull or transom-mounted transducer at the same time on the same display.

Simultaneous view

View CHIRP Sonar with StructureScan® 3D or StructureScan® HD to get the best possible view of fish and structure, below and to the sides of your boat.

Built-in support for StructureScan® HD imaging

Enjoy picture-like, 180-degree views of structure and fish below your boat. Requires optional StructureScan® HD transducer.

Built-in, award-winning Broadband Sounder™

Display and mark game fish, bait fish and structure at higher speeds and at greater depths - from one to more than 3,000*feet.

TotalScan™ transducer

Use the optional, all-in-one TotalScan™ Skimmer®transducer for Broadband and CHIRP sonar, plus StructureScan® HD with SideScan and DownScan Imaging™. This optional transducer simplifies installations by allowing anglers to get all their sonar with only one transducer install.

StructureMap™ capability

Use live or recorded StructureScan® 3D and StructureScan® HD logs to create stunning underwater images of lakes, rivers or seafloor. StructureMap can be viewed as an overlay, and toggled on and off to provide the ultimate in situational awareness in relation to both chart and bottom detail.

DownScan Overlay™ technology

Overlays DownScan Imaging™ onto CHIRP Sonar or Broadband Sounder™ returns.

TrackBack™ to review and save key hot spots

Scroll-back thru sonar or StructureScan® HD imaging history to review structure or fish targets and pinpoint the location with a waypoint.

SpotlightScan™ Sonar ready

Optional add-on delivers a new level of angler-controlled surround-scanning view to provide picture-like images of key fishing areas.
