Lowrance has prepared for 2015 by launching several new products, most notably the High Definition System Gen3 fishfinder/chart plotter series.
HDS Gen3 is available in 7-, 9- and 12-inch models and Lowrance said it combines a faster processor with enhanced, built-in fishfinder technologies, and a modified menu system.
“Since 2008, anglers worldwide have relied on Lowrance HDS systems to make the most of their time on the water,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO of parent company Navico. “Not only does HDS offer today’s most advanced fishfinder technologies, the collection of optional mapping solutions and performance modules cannot be surpassed by any fishfinder/chart plotter in the industry.”
