Vi tilbringer påsken på hytta. Innimellom harrytur, museumsbesøk og bleieskift snek Erica og jeg oss ut med båten en tur.

Min far har en Båtsman (svensk aluminiumsbåt) på hytta med en 20HK 4T EFI fra Suzuki. Båten er av typen bunnsolid, og fungerer bra til litt kortere fisketurer.

Båten er også utstyrt med et Lowrance Elite 5 HDI med 83/200/455/800-HDI ekkoloddgiver som han fikk i bursdagspresang for noen år siden. Elite HDI begynner kanskje å dra litt på årene rent teknisk, men praktisk fungerer det bra. Erica begynner å få brukbar forståelse av ekkolodd, og hyler ut når det dukker opp noe på skjermen. Vi trenger hverken Fish ID eller Fish Alarm.

Vi vertikalfisket litt oppe ved iskanten. Det var en og annen fisk å se, og den ene tok jiggen forbausende høyt i vannet. Ut i fra hoderistingen å dømme var det en abbor, men det finner vi aldri ut av. Den lille isfiskestikka jeg satt med knakk, og fisken forsvant.
Close, but no cigar
Grønn pil på bildet over viser fisken som stiger til jiggen, den tar og slipper igjen ved sort pil. Rød pil er fisken som svømmer nedover og ut av konevinkelen.

Etter en halvtimes tid var Ericas tålmodighet brukt opp. Egentlig like greit, for det blåste og var rimelig kaldt. Vi strakk litt på beina ved Elverhøy før vi kjørte ned elva igjen.
Noe på gang på Elverhøy?

Vi kjører ned til hytta igjen

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
