Lowrance HDS-8 Gen2 Insight USA (No Transducer)
Upgrade to the next generation of faster, higher-performance marine electronics in the new Lowrance HDS Gen2 series. With lightning-fast operation and the exclusive new StructureMap tool (when used with an LSS-1 sounder) to view and create your own custom detailed charts of favorite fishing, boating and diving areas, the new Gen2 series continues the highest standards that made HDS the world's best-selling multifunction display.
Insight USA Maps Included
Lowrance Insight USA mapping provides basic detailed coverage for the United States East Coast from Maine through Florida, the Gulf of Mexico, West Coast from Washington through Baja California, and the U.S. side of the Great Lakes. There are also over 100,000 inland lakes throughout the United States, (click here) for a full list. For more in-depth mapping, including higher resolution shading and 3D contours, you can add an Insight HD card or Navionics Platinum card.
New features for HDS Gen2 include:
Broadband Sounder Fishfinding
The next generation of digital sonar. An unbeatable fishfinder in its class. Whether you're in shallow, mid or deepwater over 5,000 ft.
Super-accurate, Internal GPS Antenna
Advanced Lowrance high-sensitivity GPS receiver with TurboView for the best possible chartplotting experience and WAAS corrections for reliable position accuracy in navigation. If your unit is in a cabin or under a hard top, you'll need to add the LGC-4000 (click here) external antenna.
High-bright, Sunlight-Viewable Displays
Exclusive SolarMAX displays render the finest picture and detail – in the brightest sun, and at the widest angles – of any marine display. HDS- 10, HDS-8 and HDS-7 feature super-white LED backlighting that adjusts to zero-dim for night use. Enhanced four-panel Gen2 screen viewing for HDS- 10 and HDS-8, and three-panel displays for HDS-7 and HDS-5.
Special Key Features
HDS-10 and HDS-8 users can assign up to six of their favorite screens to the softkeys panel, and enjoy instant display selection and viewing with just two button presses.
Simple-to-follow menu operation and graphic interface make HDS Gen2 easy to learn, so users quickly gain control of key functions.
SD Media Card Port
Display Insight HD, Navionics and Fishing Hot Spots digital charting. Record/save echosounder and GPS detail data as well as screen captures. Upload performance-enhancing software upgrades. The 10" and 8" models have two slots available, 7" and 5" have one slot.
HDS Gen2 features full plug-and-play connectivity with the versatility of dual platforms: high-speed Ethernet for display networking and performance module add-ons; and NMEA 2000 for onboard engine- and system-data sharing.
5-Year Advantage Service
HDS Gen2 comes complete with a two-year warranty and five-year guarantee of comprehensive replacement coverage, plus product upgrade options and savings - in warranty and beyond!
