What is HDI?
Hybrid Dual Imaging, or HDI, is the new sonar technology from Lowrance. HDI combines the BroadBand technology found in the traditional sonar of the HDS series with the DownScan Imaging technology found in the Mark/Elite DSI series. This capability allows the user to have unparalleled image definition and clarity in any water column.
What networking capabilities does Elite-7 have?
The Lowrance Elite-7 does come with a NMEA2000 port that can be found on the back with the Power and Sonar connectors. Currently, the Elite-7 will allow for external GPS data input and waypoint sharing via a NMEA2000 connection.
What are the transducer options for Elite-7?
The Elite-7 uses the same Lowrance Blue-connector transducer and power inputs that
What is special about the HDI transducer?
The HDI transducer is capable of producing both a traditional sonar image and a Lowrance DownScan Image.
What frequencies does the HDI transducer use?
The HDI transducer comes in two frequency configurations, 83/200/455/800kHz and 50/200/455/800kHz. In both instances the 455/800kHz frequencies are what produce the DownScan Image and either the 83/200kHz or 50/200kHz frequencies produce the traditional sonar image. 455/800kHz DownScan Imaging is capable of maintaining depth and water column information to 300 feet deep. 83/200kHz traditional sonar imaging is capable of maintaining depth and water column information to 1,000 feet deep. 50/200kHz traditional sonar imaging is capable of maintaining depth and water column information to 2,500 feet deep. It is important to choose the correct transducer for your application.
Are there physical differences in the HDI transducers?
While both transducers feature the standard Lowrance Skimmer style transom mount, the 83/200 HDI transducer also features a modular design found in current DSI transducers. This modular design allows for an optional low profile trolling motor mount to reduce impacts to the transducer. Due to the overall size of the 50/200kHz HDI transducer does not feature this modular design.
What is different, or the same, between an Elite-7 HDI and an HDS-7 Gen2 (non-Touch)?
The Elite-7 HDI features DownScan Imaging standard as well as traditional sonar, but is not compatible with other sonar modules. The HDS-7 Gen2 features traditional sonar as well as the ability to add Down- and Side-Imaging with accessory modules. The HDS series has full NMEA 2000 networking capability, including an Ethernet port, to add options like enhanced sonar, radar, weather, radio and more. The Elite series can only take NMEA 2000 information for GPS and waypoints only with a Point-1 antenna, and lacks the ethernet port. The HDS series can also use Navionics Platinum and HotMaps Platinum charts, and the Elite series cannot.
Which Lowrance Series is for me?
If you plan to use the device as a stand-alone for GPS and Sonar only, then the Elite series is a great value. If you plan to add enhanced or deep-water sonar, marine radar, weather receivers, networked components, and/or navigational charts that contain port photos, satellite views, and 3D modes, then you should upgrade to an HDS series model.
