HDS Highest-Definition Broadband Fishfinding

Incredible and award-winning, exclusive Broadband Sounder digital technologies is now inside all HDS sonar models for the best Lowrance fishfinding ever! As the vital link between the transducer and your HDS display, Broadband is proven to find more fish with greater sensitivity, higher definition and more display clarity with superior target separation in all cover, in thermoclines and in all water conditions.

Less Noise, More Targets
With Lowrance Broadband digital signal processing software, noise goes way down and sensitivity goes way up. The result: Ultimate target discrimination with incredible high-definition separation of those distinctive Lowrance �fish arch� targets from structure and other fish!

Crystal-Clear Clarity
With advanced digital filtering, Broadband vastly improves at-a-glance display clarity, sharpens bottom images and paints a much cleaner picture of targets that others will miss or show poorly.

Greater Shallow-Water Coverage
To cover even more water, Broadband automatically adds 83 kHz operation to a Lowrance 200 kHz single-frequency transducer. At 83 kHz, you get full 120-degrees of wide-angle coverage with greatly enhanced definition of fish arch targets.

Incredible Deep-Water Performance
Broadband sounding is serious electronics when the hunt is on for fish in any deep water weather condition. Even at higher boat speeds, Broadband keeps a bottom lock at depth, with exceptional targeting of fish arches on the bottom, around wrecks and other seabed structure. And when used with a high-power transducer, strong bottom locks and water column detail reach down thousands of feet!

Expandability at No Extra Cost
For added value, HDS Broadband-equipped models can turn an HDS GPS Chartplotter (or GlobalMap chartplotter with yellow ethernet connector) into a powerful combination fishfinder/chartplotter with complete sonar graph control when networked by Lowrance Ethernetworks.

I purchased a Lowrance HDS7 when the unit first came out. The dealer and the boating press hailed it as the best new electronic item on the market. It is a fine unit, as long as you never leave the dock. It was designed by someone who has never been at sea. It is in a word, just plain hard to use, much like the original windows program where you had several steps to reach your goal. Recently I had a problem in that the HDS 7 stopped sending the NEMA 0183 sentences to the VHF radio. Neither the dealer or the factory could help me reestablish the link. Luckily, as I was looking for the installation instructions(mine is "in dash" mounted) I came across a factory supplied instruction which had originally been provided by the dealer to correct just this problem. But neither dealer or tech support had any idea of what to do. I used the old instructions and solved the problem in about two minutes, after having spent lots of quality time with both factory and dealer with no results. I recently tried to update, at the factory's suggestion, the software, only to find out that the SD card reader does not work. The remedy suggested is to remove the unit from the dash and send it in for repair. Oh Joy, that sounds like fun. An internet search has revealed that I am far from the only one with the above problems. Oh, and I also like the disclaimer on the screen..."to not use the data from this unit as your primary source of information for navigation." Perhaps Lowrance could tell me why I spent good money for this unit if you can't trust the data. I have a small hand held GPS from another manufacturer that from the factory works easier and has far more information, and has been trouble free for about six years.

the newer one has been fixed... Scrolling to find a number is not easy on this model Lowrance. I had bought two machines and took it out of my offshore boat and replaced it with the older Lowrance that works much better. I still use the one in my flats boat. This Lowrance unit is used by Always Fishing Guide Service here in Florida
