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.

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 2Units from this series are seen while fishing in most of my reports on …

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

Whenever a completely new model or a rewamp of an existing model comes out, we get the same question: "What is the difference?"



Previously I have written a few articles about the differences between some of the (now historic) Lowrance-models:
What is the difference between Lowrance HDS and Lowrance Elite HDI?What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 2 and HDS Gen 3?
This time we will take a look at the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 3 and the brand new Lowrance HDS Carbon that was released 15. december 2016. We will look at the technical stuff, and try to translate that into what it will mean when out on the water.


HDS Carbon is actually the fifth version of the popular HDS-series. Before it came HDS Gen 1, HDS Gen 2, HDS Gen 2 Touch and HDS Gen 3. HDS Gen 2 Touch marked a new area of how Lowrance run their model-updates, since it was released shortly after HDS Gen 2 and the two lived alongside eachother for a year before HDS Gen 3 came. Again HDS Gen 2 Touch was k…

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 HDS Live and HDS Carbon? What is new with HDS Live? Can I use my old stuff with HDS Live? In this article we will look at those questions, first from a technical aspect (we are a bit nerdy here in Team Colibri) and try to show what those technical differences will mean out on the water. We will also give a few hints on what will, and what will not, work well of older electronics together with HDS Live.

Hardware: Screen, housing and internal components. The screen itself is the same as on HDS Carbon, IPS-type screen that is readable with polaroids on and from the side so you don`t have to stand right in front of the unit to see what`s going on. It has the same screen-resolution as Carbon, and that was (a…

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 2 and HDS Gen 3?

The cyclus in which models change have become shorter and shorter.Is there any real difference between them anymore?

When I started out in this game most people would say that their sonar should stay onboard for 8-10 years before they would even consider upgrading it. Everything with less then 5 years on it was considered "new". But as with all things containing a circuit-board, development has been ever accelerating and we are now down to a two or three year cycle between model-changes. I belive that this is to the consumers advantage, but is "the new" always better then "the old"?

In most cases the answer to that question is "yes", but it`s up to you to decide if that difference is big enough for you to spend your hard earned cash. Technically it is easy to spot the differences, but whether you will notice it out on the water is a more subjective mather. In this article I will try to look behind the marketing, and point to the actual differen…

Hva trenger man til dorging/ trolling?

Jeg ser av statistikken at mange av treffene på bloggen kommer fra folk som googler etter informasjon rundt utstyret som brukes til avansert dorging, populært kalt trolling. Her følger derfor en beskrivelse av hva jeg bruker, og hvordan jeg bruker det. Jeg begynner med det enkleste (og billigste) og fortsetter med det mer avanserte spesialutstyret. Nå er det ikke nødvendigvis slik at mine meninger er SVARET over alle svar, de er bare mine meninger basert på min (mangelfulle) kunnskap og mine (begrensede) erfaringer. Hva man føler man trenger av utstyr styres av så mange faktorer at dette på ingen måte kan være en absolutt fasit. Du bør dog få en del basiskunnskap ut av det jeg skriver, og ikke minst et sted å starte når du skal høste egne erfaringer.

Det kan også være greit å nevne at jeg riktignok har jobbet 10-15 år i sportsbransjen, men at det er 6 år siden jeg forlot bransjen. Jeg har ingen interesse av å promotere spesielle produkter og merker, hvis jeg anbefaler noe er det fordi…
