Top-of-the-line sonar technologies provide the best possible view of the environment beneath your boat.

High Definition System (HDS) Gen3 combines a brighter, multi-touch display and enhanced processor with leading-edge fishfinder technologies—including CHIRP Sonar, Broadband Sounder™, StructureScan® HD, DownScan Imaging™ and Trackback™ view—plus the latest advances in navigation and user interface, including internal 10Hz GPS, dual microSD-card slots, touch-plus-keypad operation and built-in wireless connectivity, all in one easy-to-use display.

FishReveal™ Smart Target Viewing: A massive leap forward in fish-finding technology, FishReveal makes it easier to see fish on DownScan Imaging™. Unlike traditional CHIRP views that provide strong fish targets, but lack refined structure detail, or DownScan Imaging that provides photo-like images of the bottom and structure details but shows fish targets as tiny dots -- FishReveal Smart Target Viewing blends the best data from both, eliminating the need for split-screen viewing and interpretation.

C-MAP Navigation Palette: C-MAP charts just got a major upgrade in readability that is most apparent near shore, where 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.

Automatic 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+, Navionics+ or Navionics® Platinum chart.

Key Features

  • Simple To Use: Improved Lowrance interface with touchscreen or keypad option provides lightning-fast, fingertip access to all HDS features.
  • Most Advanced Fishfinder Technology: View CHIRP Sonar and StructureScan® HD at the same time to get the best possible view of fish and structure, both below and to the side of your boat.
  • Quickly Make Adjustments: With an enhanced, faster processor and intuitive user-interface features—including scrolling menus, cursor assist, snap-to setting markers and innovative preview panes with quick-touch slider bars.
  • Stay Connected: Integrated wireless connectivity with the Lowrance GoFree App and other onboard devices—view and control select HDS Gen3 displays wirelessly using supported tablets and smartphones.
  • More Is Better: Plug-and-play compatibility with Lowrance performance modules—Broadband Radar, SonicHub Marine Audio, SiriusXM Marine Weather and audio, Class B AIS and DSC VHF—as well as industry-leading technologies, such as SmartSteer control for MotorGuide PinpointGPS and the Lowrance Outboard Pilot.
  • Insight Genesis™ personalized maps: Make your own maps using recorded sonar logs, upload data to Insight Genesis account, view secure custom chart detail online, add optional vegetation or bottom-hardness overlays, download to an SD card and use on the water. Plus, you now have the option to share maps with the Insight Genesis Social Map community.
