Setting a new performance standard for affordably priced navigation and fishfinder electronics, the new HDI units feature a built-in GPS antenna, high-definition mapping options, and the Lowrance exclusive Hybrid Dual Imaging technology that combines Broadband Sounder™ and Downscan Imaging for the best possible view beneath your boat.
Available in fishfinder-only, chartplotter-only (HD) and fishfinder/chartplotter combo models, the new addition to the Lowrance HDI series offers a full selection of top-performing sonar and navigation features in an easy-to-operate, space-saving design.
Built into the new Lowrance HDI Skimmer® transducer design, Broadband Sounder technology is ideal for marking fish arches and tracking lure action, while Downscan Imaging provides easy-to-understand, picture-like views of structure and bottom detail. With the exclusive Lowrance Downscan Overlay feature, boaters can combine the Downscan Imaging view with the Broadband Sounder recording for a stunning presentation that separates and clearly exposes fish targets from surrounding structure. Overlay transparency is fully adjustable.
Lowrance’s Advanced Signal Processing (ASP) maximizes fishing time by reducing the need to manually adjust settings to see fish, structure and bottom detail more clearly. Exclusive TrackBack™ functionality allows anglers to scroll back in recorded sonar history to review structure, transitions and fish targets, and pinpoint locations with a waypoint (on chartplotter models) — eliminating the need to circle back and retrace their path.
Elite-4 and Mark-4 HDI models with chartplotter capability feature a highly accurate built-in GPS antenna and come with an SD card so that boaters can download, Navionics® or Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N charts. All HDI/HD chartplotter models are compatible with the new online Insight Genesis™ map creation service, which allows users to make their own custom, high-resolution contour, bottom hardness and vegetation maps from recorded sonar logs, and are also compatible with an array of other charts including NV Digital maps.
The Elite-4 HDI and Mark-4 HDI models feature Lowrance-exclusive, high-resolution 4.3-inch, color and grayscale displays, respectively, and employ an easy-to-use menu system with quick one-thumb operation. Multi-window display options, which show a variety of sonar imaging/chartplotter screen configurations, are easy to access thru preset page layouts that include a three-panel view with chart, Broadband Sounder and DownScan Imaging.
