Det skal ikke være lett....

Med båten i garasjen har jeg begynt å tenke på montering av den nye HDSen. I dag skrudde jeg av platen bak på båten som den gamle giveren er festet på, og tok den med inn for rengjøring og for å se om jeg må borre nye hull. Selvfølgelig passer ingen av de gamle hullene.....

Jeg kan forstå hvorfor Humminbird (mitt gamle ekkolodd) og Lowrance (mitt nye) ikke bruker samme avstand mellom skruene på braketten som holder giveren. Ved å bruke andre mål en konkurrenten, blir det litt mer smertefullt å bytte, siden de fleste må borre nye hull i skroget. Det jeg IKKE skjønner er hvorfor ikke Lowrance/ Airmar sørger for å bruke samme mål mellom skruene på alle sine braketter engang. Hvis de gjorde det, hadde det vært enda enklere å selge dyrere givere som oppgradering, siden du ikke trenger å borre nye hull i skroget.

De ytterste hullene er etter mitt eldgamle Lowrancelodd, de innerste er etter Humminbird. Som du ser passer den nye braketten ikke på noen av de, så her må jeg frem med drillen. Enda en god grunn til å velge den løsningen jeg har med justerbart feste for ekkoloddgiveren.

Silver justerbar ekkoloddplate, snart sveitserost.

  1. Fortsetter det sånn er det ikke mye igjen av den plata tilslutt...

  2. Hvilken modell har du kjøpt?

  3. @Kjetil: den tåler nok noen til. :) Ny plate med list for montering koster 900,- så da lever jeg godt med noen hull. Uansett bedre enn hull i skroget.
    @V3: Lowrance HDS5 med standard 83/200 giver montert på Silver sin variant av justerbart feste for ekkoloddgiver.

What is the difference between HDS Carbon and HDS Live?

Here we go again, a new generation of the Lowrance HDS. And with that Facebook and the different forums are flooded with questions referring to the difference between the new and the old. So what is the difference between Lowrance HDS Live and HDS Carbon?

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS and Lowrance Elite HDI

Ever since the Elite 7 HDI came on the market I have recived a lot of questions regarding the difference between the HDS-range and Elite HDI. In this article I will try to list most of the differences, seen from a keen anglers point of view. This also means looking at most of what Lowrance has to offer, but I'm sticking to models sold today and models I personally would recommend. The three main model-series, plus the newcomer Elite CHIRP. HDS Gen 2 , true multi function displays (MFD) with button-operation and screensize from 5" to 10,4". HDS Gen 2 Touch , true multi function displays (MFD) with touchscreens and screensize from 7" to 12". Elite HDI , "stand alone", ie not ment for networking besides VHF and AIS. Button-operation and screensize from 4,3" to 7". Elite CHIRP , as Elite HDI but with CHIRP-sonar and faster processor in adition. Screensize 5" and 7".   HDS Gen 2 Units from this series are seen while fishing

What is the difference between HDS Gen 3 and HDS Carbon?

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Live and Elite Ti2?

Lowrance as a brand of marine electronis is well known to all anglers, but the differences within their range of different models seem to cause quite a few questions out there. Here we will try to outline the difference between Lowrance HDS Live (top end) and Lowrance Elite Ti2 (middle range). Lowrance Elite Ti2 vs Lowrance HDS Live (photo; lowrance.com) As usual, we will start with the tech and then try to translate those technical aspects to practical differences while out on the water. Hardware - housing, screen and connections. The screen and housing on Elite Ti2 is the same as on the previous Elite Ti, and again more or less the same as on HDS Gen 2 Touch. (The memorycard-door and mounting-bracket is different from HDS Gen 2 Touch.) This is by no means new stuff, and compared to the more advanced housing and screen on HDS Live, Elite Ti2 is starting to show its relative age. However, with that in mind it is worth noting that when looking at the competition, several of

Lowrance Hook 2 versus Lowrance Hook Reveal

You have to hand it to Lowrance when it comes to the name of their new entry-level line of sonar and chartplotters. We all want to hook up, and what better way to do that then by having our marine electronics reveal to us where the fish are?
