New marine electronics: Lowrance StructureScan 3D fish finder
Just when you thought marine electronics couldn’t get any more sophisticated, along comes an innovation that sets the bar even higher.
Lowrance has announced the upcoming release of its sonar-imaging system StructureScan 3D, that permits anglers to easily see fish, underwater structure and bottom contours — all in glorious 3D.
3D Lowrance Structure Scan
High-resolution three-dimensional images are displayed on the Lowrance HDS Gen3 fish finder/ chartplotter to give fishermen an ever better understanding of where fish and structure are located in relation to their boat.
StructureScan 3D probes underwater terrain and fish-holding structure in depths to 100m and as far as 180m to port and starboard.
Multiple viewing options including boosted DownScan Imaging, super-detailed StructureScan HD and those revolutionary three-dimensional views.
Users can combine custom HD and 3D views with virtual point-of-view angles or ScanTrack pan-tilt-rotate controls.
Other features will include Leading Edge that provides a graphical illustration of the sonar beams to give a better sense of target depth; SelectScan that colours fish-holding cover and targets for quick identification; and Vertical Depth Enhancement that emphasises crucial depth contour changes.
Lowrance 3D Waypoint Overlay also makes it easier to revisit hot spots, structure and other favourite fishing spots, by saving waypoints at the boat location or dropping a point on specific targets such as baitfish schools.
Lowrance Structure Scan 3D price
The releases date is said to be around December 2015. As for price, Lowrance StructureScan 3D will retail for AUD $1439 RRP for the module and Skimmer transducer kit.
