Hvordan logge med Lowrance Elite

Vi har tidligere sett på hvordan vi kan logge med Lowrance HDS, Humminbird og Raymarine. Nå er vi kommet til Lowrance Elite.

Denne fremgangsmåten fungerer med alle kombimodellene (ekkolodd og kartplotter i en enhet) av Elite HDI og Elite CHIRP. Det er å anbefale at du sørger for å ha oppdatert software, du kan hente gratis softwareoppdatering til din Elite her: http://www.lowrance.com/en-US/Software-Updates/

Med båten på vannet, begynn med å slå på Eliten. Putt inn minnekortet du skal logge på. Du bør IKKE logge på et minnekort med Navionics eller Jeppesen (C-map) sine kart på. Derimot kan du helt fint logge på en minnebrikke hvor du har kart fra dybdekart.no. Både Elite HDI og Elite CHIRP godtar Micro SD og Micro SDHD minnekort opp til 32GB. Det kan med fordel være et rimelig minnekort med lav klassifisering, gjerne ikke mer enn klasse 6. Et minnekort på 8GB holder til et stort kart og flere dager med logging, så kjøp heller flere små kort enn et stort, minnekort har begrenset levetid i et maritimt miljø.

Vent til Eliten har fått kontakt med nok satellitter til å vise din posisjon. Dette kan ta alt fra noen få sekunder til flere minutter. Hvis du ikke allerede står i et skjermbilde som viser ekkoloddet, trykk "Pages"-knappen og velg ekkolodd.

I ekkoloddbildet, trykk "Menu"-knappen og du får opp denne menyen:

Ekkoloddmeny Elite 7 CHIRP
Bruk piltastene til å gå ned til "Opptak ekkolodd" (markert med rød firkant). Trykk "Enter"-knappen og du får dette skjermbildet:

Klar for ekkoloddopptak
Bildet over viser strengt tatt menyen mens opptaket er i gang, men prinsippet er det samme. Markert med rød firkant er menypunktet du trykker på for å starte opptaket ditt, her vil det stå "Start opptak". Bruk piltastene til å markere valget og trykk "Enter"-tasten. Opptaket ditt er nå i gang og lagres direkte til minnebrikken du satte inn.

Når du er ferdig med loggingen, gjentar du trinnene over men velger "Stopp opptak" i siste punkt. Du kan starte og stoppe opptaket så ofte du vil, tidligere opptak blir ikke slettet eller skrevet over. Vi anbefaler at du stanser loggingen når båten skal i plan, og starter på nytt når båten kommer ned fra plan.

Vel hjemme igjen putter du minnekortet i en PC og sender inn til dybdekart.no. Etter en stund kan du laste ned det oppdaterte kartet fra nettsiden.

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
