  • Dual-channel CHIRP:
    • Deep water and trolling anglers will never miss a fish, watching two Lowrance CHIRP frequencies at the same time via a dual-channel CHIRP split screen
    • Run a High CHIRP panel for the best target separation close to the bottom or in tight schools, a Medium CHIRP panel to cover the widest area
    • Ideal for watching bait schools under a transducer in shallow water, or go deeper with a Low CHIRP panel to cover more of the water column
  • C-MAP® Easy Routing and Navionics® Dock-to-Dock Autorouting:
    • You will navigate faster and easier with automatic route planning
    • Menu activated, the feature automatically plots the shortest and safest course based on a boats draft, beam and height, creating a route around a landmass, shoals and other fixed navigational hazards
    • Requires C-MAP MAX-N+ charts, Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts
  • C-MAP navigation palette:
    • Enhances the readability of C-MAP charts, especially near shore, where the colors used for land, docks, anchorage areas, water, and channels are nicely differentiated and water contour lines are distinct
    • That makes it easy 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 much easier on the eye
  • Wireless connectivity:
    • Integrated wireless connectivity with the Lowrance® LINK App and other onboard devices, allows you to download software updates and custom C-MAP® Genesis maps directly to the display and offers wireless smartphone viewing/tablet control of HDS Carbon displays

000-14489-001 Active Imaging 3-in-1 Transducer:

  • Active Imaging 3-in-1 combines the Active Imaging scanning sonar with a traditional Medium/High CHIRP sonar element for easy single transducer installation
  • Includes 7.6 m (25 ft) cable with 9 pin connector
  • Scanning sonar technology that provides incredibly detailed, high resolution imaging sonar without sacrificing any range
    • These transducers do this by better directing the SideScan beams which increases resolution and improves range performance
  • Active Imaging is available in two models
    • Combines the Active Imaging scanning sonar with a traditional Medium/High CHIRP sonar element for easy single transducer installation
    • Operates at 800kHz or 455kHz with maximum ranges of 150ft (800kHz) or 300ft (455kHz)
  • Utilizes the latest techniques in sonar signal generation
  • Constructed of a polymer that reacts to sound waves more closely to water
    • This ensures that no sonar signal is lost during transmit or receive
  • Include separate sonar elements for SideScan transmit and receive
    • Separating transmit and receive allows Active Imaging to have an incredibly fast ping speed (Ping speed directly correlates to image resolution)
    • Additionally, these separate elements focus more of the sonar signal outwardly, increasing the sonar signal to the sides and leading to better range performance
  • Key Features
    • Active Imaging sonar offers no compromise high resolution detail to users
    • 800kHz operation covers many use cases and ranges
    • With 800kHz range and resolution capabilities users do not need to choose between seeing in high detail or seeing far
    • High resolution IPS screens of NSS evo3 and HDS Live show the full image, allowing the user to see the entire underwater environment
    • Active Imaging 3-in-1 transducers combine industry leading CHIRP sonar with Active Imaging Side and Down views giving users total coverage with award winning sonar
    • They do not require any modules or extra hardware for use with next-generation displays
