Product Description

HDS-8 Gen2 is compatible with Lowrance enhanced basemaps, Insight HD cartography, Navionics® and all HDS-compatible third-party charting cards, the new StructureMap view provides a greater perspective of the areas covered by StructureScan sonar imaging. In addition, with the built-in recording capability of HDS Gen2, users can easily create and view StructureMap detail on or off the water — without the aid of a computer.

All HDS Gen2 models with chartplotter capability feature an internal, high-sensitivity GPS+WAAS antenna — with an LGC-4000 external 5Hz GPS antenna available as an option. HDS Gen2 models with fishfinder capability incorporate the award-winning Broadband Sounder™ that delivers legendary Lowrance sonar performance with greater sensitivity, peerless echo clarity and underwater definition proven to find more targets. Lowrance’s premier TrackBack™ functionality allows HDS Gen2 users to scrollback in the recorded history of Broadband Sounder or StructureScan sonar imaging to review structure or fish targets and pinpoint locations with a waypoint. To avoid losing important sonar data, HDS Gen2 continues recording throughout the use of TrackBack to ensure valuable readings are not lost.
Designed for easy viewing in all conditions, all Gen2 models feature a SolarMAX™ PLUS display with LED backlighting (HDS-5 models feature fluorescent backlight), for exceptional viewing in the brightest sunlight and from wide angles. Users can also adjust the screen brightness to as much as zero-dim for low-light conditions. HDS Gen2 models offer plug-and-play operation with an easy-to-use graphic menu system for more convenient access and control of key functions. In addition, HDS-8 and HDS-10 models feature six programmable softkeys for one-button access to the most commonly used menu functions.

Setting the new standard in performance-module options, HDS Gen2 models can be networked and are compatible with Lowrance’s comprehensive range of innovative boating and fishing marine-electronics gear — including Broadband 3G Radar and the new Broadband 4G Radar with 36-mile range and beam-sharpening for unprecedented target separation; StructureScan Sonar HD Imaging for sidescan and DownScan Imaging™ picture-like views of underwater structure; SonicHub® marine audio server for integrated access to music stored on an Apple iPod® or iPhone®; and LWX-1 SIRIUS® satellite weather/radio. In addition the systems connect with the complete line of NMEA 2000® sensors for affordable, real-time onboard systems tracking and engine monitoring data for improved fuel management.
