Visibly Better Screens - In order to better replicate the underwater home where fish live and how you interact with the display, Lowrance has developed and specially tuned a visibly better screen delivering better definition of sonar returns, dynamic dimensionality in menu elements and a layered, strong and subtle color scheme for striking on-screen detail.

Obviously Faster Interface - To drive the latest in electronics technology the HDS Gen3 benefits the angler by turning out the fastest HDS® ever. Those keys are made for pushing. And, we know it is important for you to feel how the touch screen functions. A remarkably fast processor ensures that HDS Gen3 will perform the way you fish.

Lowrance SmartSteer™ allows seamless switching from electric-steer trolling-motor and outboard pilot steering. Add-in any NMEA 2000® certified device and available engine interface cables or Lowrance data sensors for a professional-level system that is effortless-to-install and easy-to-use.
