Tournament Winning Fishfinder
The HDS Carbon was designed for the angler who wants to experience the very best performance; this is why fishing pros use the HDS series more than any other fishfinder. Lowrance has been the leader in fishfinding technology since inventing the recreational fishfinder in 1957. The HDS Carbon carries on the tradition of providing you with the most effective & easy to use, tools you need to find more fish, including the brightest and clearest SolarMAX™ HD screens, the fastest chart redraws and sonar updates, plus built-in Lowrance CHIRP sonar and StructureScan® 3D capability.
FishReveal™ Smart Target View
FishReveal makes fish easy to see. By combining traditional CHIRP sonar fish arches with superior, high-resolution DownScan Imaging you get the view you need to fish with precision, like bottom detail, structure and bait fish. Even better, FishReveal removes the need to display CHIRP sonar and DownScan Imaging in a two-panel split-screen display.
Live Network Sonar
You can cover more water in less time when viewing sonar from up to two transducers at the same time – on the same display – with Lowrance exclusive Live Network Sonar.
Deep water and trolling anglers will never miss a fish when watching two Lowrance CHIRP frequencies at the same time on a dual-channel CHIRP split screen. To get the most out of this feature, run a High CHIRP panel for the best target separation close to the bottom or of the tight schools, a Medium CHIRP panel will cover the widest area – this is 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.
Dual Core, High-Performance Processor
HDS Carbon has our fastest dual-core processor. This means you will experience faster map panning, more responsive commands, quicker redraw and more frequent sonar updates. HDS Carbon also powers high-performance functionality like CHIRP Sonar, StructureMap™ and StructureScan® 3D, all the things that make your experience on the water, with power to spare for future feature updates.
SolarMAX™ HD Display gives Optimum Performance in any Weather
You will see fish, structure and chart detail better than ever on the high-resolution, super-bright SolarMAX™ HD displays. Whether searching for fish around structure or navigating to your favourite fishing spot, the images will be bright and clear with easy viewing from any angle, even in direct sunlight, and through polarized sunglasses. Our ultra-responsive multi-touch screen works even when the display is wet.
With integrated wireless connectivity, you are able to download software updates and C-MAP Genesis maps directly to your display, and upload detailed service reports to technical support
You can view and control your HDS carbon Display from your smartphone or tablet using the free Link App. This means backup and restore waypoints, routes, trails and display settings directly to your mobile device. It is also easier than ever to protect your valuable fishing data against loss or theft.
HDS-12 Carbon options from SMG
HDS-12 Carbon display with no transducer.
With TotalScan Transducer
The TotalScan™ marries up Broadband Sonar, CHIRP Sonar, StructureScan® HD and DownScan™ Imaging technology into one easy to use package. This makes it possible to target fish and search for fish-holding structures with the same transducer. TotalScan™ gets rid of the need for multiple transducer installs.
With StructureScan® 3D Transducer
You can easily pinpoint fish locations and key fishing areas in and around structure where the fish hide with the three-dimensional views of StructureScan combining enhanced SideScan and DownScan Imaging. SideScan gives you picture-like views up to 600 feet to each side of your boat, while DownScan Imaging with FishReveal™ makes fish identification easy, using high-detail images of cover and structure below your boat. You can also place waypoints on favourite fishing areas and revisit them again and again with the powerful navigation capability of HDS Carbon. Add a StructureScan 3D transducer and module to unlock the full potential of your fishfinder.
