Vansjø 29.05 - Hyttetur med familien



Torsdagen gikk med til transport, pakke ut og sosialt samvær. Men gamlebåten min kom i hvertfall på vannet.

Vakkert

Etter grilling og legging av unger lot jeg damene sitte igjen på hytta, og kjørte ut en liten tur med båten. Målet var å logge data fra Mosseelva, spesielt området rundt hytta siden dataene herfra var mangelfulle og jeg mistenkte at de inneholdt noen data som jeg måtte korrigere. 
 
Ekstremt tett logging for dybdekart
 

Jeg fikk også oppdatert softwaren i min Lowrance HDS 5 Gen 2 til 3.0-versjonen som kom ut for noen dager siden. Den største endringen er muligheten for å automatisk beregne navigasjonsruter med Navionics, en funksjon jeg ikke har fått testet enda. 


Oppdateringsbilde


Oppdateringen har med seg en bitteliten bugg som man ser når man skal logge sonardata. I min HDS 5 er det bare en minnekortport, i motsetning til HDS 8 og 10 som har to plasser til minnekort. Men etter oppdateringen får jeg uansett valget om jeg skal lagre på minnekort i høyre eller venstre port, til tross for at det rent fysisk bare er en port. En helt uviktig detalj, men jeg skal uansett melde den inn så den blir rettet i neste softwareversjon.

Valget i rød firkant finnes ikke
 

En annen ting jeg tester er denne saken jeg fant på ebay:


Special price for you my friend

Jeg kjøpte den i fjor til Berkley Series One vertikalstangen min, og brukte både stang og snelle til diverse vertikalfiske i fjor. Poenget var delvis å prøve en av de ekstremt billige "kinasnellene" som florerer på ebay, og delvis ville jeg ha en lett snelle som ville passe godt til den lette vertikalstangen. Snella er fylt med tynn multifilament (PowerPro) og jeg har faktisk begynt å kaste litt med kombinasjonen også. Abborjigger med lette hoder formelig flyr frem, og kombinasjonen er virkelig ekstremt følsom så jeg kjenner det meste som skjer i enden av sena. Foreløpig har jeg bare positive ting å si om snella, men det gjenstår selvfølgelig å se hvordan den fungerer over tid. 10 kulelager og ett rullelager er uansett utrolig billig for et par hundrelapper, men som jeg har nevnt tidligere her på bloggen så er gjerne øvrige komponenter i en snelle langt viktigere enn antall kulelager.....

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 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 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?" Lowrance HDS Carbon 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. Lowrance HDS Gen 3 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 alon

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 diff

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
