Lowrance Hook Reveal - innstilling av 2D ekkolodd

Vi fortsetter med filmer med "tips & triks" basert på spørsmål fra dere, denne gangen med basisinnstillinger av 2D-ekkolodd. 

I filmen bruker jeg innstegsmodellen Lowrance Hook Reveal, men menypunktene jeg går gjennom er ganske universale uansett merke og modell. Siden Hook Reveal ikke er særlig egnet for manuell modus og pelagisk fiske, hopper jeg over det her, dette får jeg komme tilbake til med HDS som eksempel litt senere.

Om du ikke kan se filmen her, så prøv denne direktelinken: https://youtu.be/y-qJvmGsl70

Litt skjermbilder fra turen på Mjøsa, alle fra Lowrance Hook Reveal med 50/200-HDI som ekkoloddgiver:

FishReveal fungerer også utmerket.

For de virkelig spesielt interesserte.... Jeg har også testet å bruke Airmar TM185HW på Hook Reveal. Da velges "Generisk 83/200" som ekkoloddgiver og man kan bruke 200 kHz og høy chirp av frekvensvalgene. 200kHz støttes av TM185HW, mens Lowrance sin versjon av høy chirp avviker litt fra Airmars, så sistnevnte er ikke ideelt. Jeg vil ikke anbefale noen å bruke denne kombinasjonen, dette er kun for morro skyld for å se hvordan Hook Reveal responderer på andre ekkoloddgivere.

Som du ser vises både fisk og dyprigglodd tydeligere med TM185HW, men det er mest en konsekvens av konevinkelen (25 grader) som er større enn med 50/200-HDI på høy chirp (200 kHz gir 12 graders konevinkel). 


  1. Hello, it is officially stated that Reveal does not support Aimer transducers
    How do you connect TM185HW and Reveal?

    1. Hi! As stated in the article, Airmar TM185HW is not fully compatible with Hook Reveal, and we do NOT recommend using that transducer with Hook Reveal. You can connect any xSonic-connector to Hook Rveal (and Hook2) using adapter 000-14069-001. Kind regards Erik

    2. Thank you for your answer~ You are very professional

  2. Originally, the 50/200 transducer with Reveal is not enough for my sea area. I need to be able to stabilize the probe at a depth of about 300~400 meters.

    1. Hi! Hook Reveal is a good entry-level unit, but still just entry level. :) For the depths you mention I highly recommend HDS Live, as that has both more power and more advanced signal processing, both needed when operationg in deep water, ideally combined with the S5100-module and a 1000W or more transducer. Kind regards Erik

    2. If it is matched with other high-wattage 50/200 aimer transducers, can it reach the detection depth below 300? Like B258 P319

    3. The output of the Hook Reveal is the same with a 500W and 1000W (or more) transducer, as it is limited within the unit. The cheapest Lowrance-unit with a 1000W-output is the new Elite FS, which has the same maximum output as HDS Live has. (All HDS-generations since Gen 3 have 1000W-output) Airmar P319 is very similar to Lowrance HST-DFSBL (or 50/200-HDI), B258 has a larger element which will be more sensetive and can detect fish deeper, but the somwehat larger conengle on 258 is not ideal for really deep water. B260 is better in 200+ meters versus B258.

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
