FREE Lowrance upgrade

Mar 21, 2019 Boat Bling

Lowrance’s free 18.3 software update for HDS Carbon displays offers support for Active Imaging, StructureScan 3D with Active Imaging enhancements and the LR-1 Remote Control, plus a simplified user interface and new Dual Mode WiFi capability.

The update supports both Active Imaging 3-in-1 and 2-in-1 transducers.

Active Imaging enhancements for StructureScan 3D include a cleaner water column with less noise, refreshed colour palettes and enhanced sonar processing, plus a new depth-highlighting feature.

The HDS Carbon interface has been simplified and new custom split-screen panel configurations can display SideScan, DownScan Imaging and StructureScan 3D on the same screen, at the same time.

Dual Mode WiFi maintains a WiFi connection to HDS Carbon and functions as an access point for screen mirroring/remote control from a smartphone or tablet via the Link app. Before, HDS Carbon displays could only perform one task at a time.

Users can control an HDS Carbon display from anywhere on their boat with the optional Lowrance LR-1 Remote Control.
