Lowrance Debuts StructureScan 3D
Lowrance, a world-leading brand in fishing electronics since 1957, announced today the release of a game-changing,sonar-imaging system – Lowrance StructureScan 3D.
Lowrance StructureScan 3D allows anglers to easily see fish, underwater structure and bottom contours in a stunning three-dimensional display on their HDS Gen3fishfinder/chartplotter. StructureScan 3D imaging quickly scans underwater terrain and fish-holding structure to createhigh-resolution, 180-degree super-wide, three-dimensional views – in depths to 300 feet and as far as 600 feet port and starboard.
Yielding captivating images withunprecedenteddetail, StructureScan 3D gives anglers a better understanding of where fish and structure are located in relation to their boat.The true-to-life 3D scans are viewedon the Lowrance HDS Gen3 display, when used in combination with the SideScan 3D Skimmer transducer and StructureScan 3D module– making HDS Gen3 the ultimate fishfinder.
StructureScan 3D sonar provides multiple viewing options including boostedDownScan Imaging, even more detailed StructureScan HD andthe new revolutionary three-dimensional views. Using virtual point-of-viewangles orScanTrack pan-tilt-rotate control, anglers can combinecustom HD and 3D views to increasesituational awareness and search fishing areas as never before.
In addition to outstanding crystal-clear imaging, StructureScan 3D has exclusive features that make finding fish even easier including:
Leading Edge scanning referenceprovides a clear graphical illustration of the sonar beams as they intersect with the bottom contours and gives the angler a better sense of target depth.
SelectScan water column target coloringautomatically shades fish-holding cover and suspended targets in a color that contrasts the selected color palette, making target identification quicker and easier than ever before.
VerticalDepth Enhancementprovidesemphasis to vertical drops and crucial depth contour changes making them easier to identify relative to the surrounding underwater terrain.
3D Waypoint Overlay makes it easy to revisit fishing areas, structure and other underwater sweet spots. Use the waypoint keypad to save a waypoint at the boat location or switch to cursor mode and save a waypoint over specific targets, baitfishschools or cover.
“With StructureScan 3D, anglers can search forfish and underwater structure like never before,”said Leif Ottosson, CEO and president, Navico. “With the addition of StructureScan 3D to our HDS Gen3 range, we will change the way people fish. Givinganglers a unique three-dimensional view of fish, structure and contours maximizes anglers time on the water and keeps them in the strike zone.”
Scheduled for availability December 2015,Lowrance StructureScan 3D can be purchased from authorized Lowrance dealers and distributors throughout the United States and Canada and is priced at $999 for the module and Skimmer transducer kit.
