Humminbird/ Lakemaster med nyhet (i USA)

Etter at det svenske kartprogrammet Dr Depth ble kjøpt av det samme selskapet som eier Humminbird og Lakemaster, har de fått fart på kartdelen av sine produkter. Siste skudd mot blinken er et produkt som heter Lakemaster, som er dybdekart med informasjon om vannenes fiskearter og hvor i vannet det er størst sannsynlighet for å treffe på en art avhengig av sesong, tid på døgnet og vær. 

Lakemaster er foreløpig bare tilgjengelig på den andre siden av Atlanterhavet, og kun for Humminbird sine nye modeller ONIX og ION. Men det sier litt om hva teknologien bak et moderne dybdekart kan brukes til. Det er liten tvil om at Lowrance med Insight Genesis og Humminbird med Lakemaster og AutoChart kjemper hardt om å "lede" på kartfronten, noe som kommer oss brukere til gode.

The perfect settings for Lowrance? A guide on how to set up your 2D-sonar part I.

Perhaps the most repeated question in Facebookgroups and forums regarding marine electronics: "What are the best settings?" The bad news is that there is no uniform answer to that. The good news is that you can adjust settings according to conditions if you have a little knowledge as to what settings you should tweak and why. Here is part 1 of our guide to get the most out of your unit in regards to settings.

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?

Lowrance Elite Ti2 versus Elite FS

  When Lowrance launches a new mid-range unit, it is a big deal. Forums and Facebookgroups light up with questions on the new stuff, differences towards the old stuff and questions on compatibility. As usual, we in Team Colibri will try our best to sort that out, both on a technical level and with a more practical in-your-boat approach.

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?

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
