  1. Erik, I am into Lowrance feet first and I posed a "sort of" question regarding the 3 in 1 transducer for my new HDS Live on BBC and you did an outstanding job of answering my questions. Having some time I researched Team Colibri and ended up here. It is quite interesting as I grew up in small town in Wisconsin and most of the residents are of Norwegian background. We used to have a yearly festival in town which the highlight of the event was a big parade down Main Street. After the main parade we had the Syttende Mai parade celebrating our Norwegian Heritage. I am not sure the real Norwegians would have approved but it was a load of fun so your site brings me back to home. Anyway I just read your HDS Carbon Verses Live and had to laugh. I have a Lowrance program guy who I buy his less than 1 year old 12 and 9 for what his new stuff will cost him. This year he might not have the contacts but insisted I get the Live units and he will take back my Carbons. I have a Ranger 620FS and had some work done at the dealer and told him to install my 12 in the old Carbon flush mount. After a few days they called and stated that I need a new console as the Live doesn't fit the old on! $700 later and on the side they tell me not to get the Livesight transducer, it is not very good. Oh well, maybe in the next year they will have it figured out and hopefully it's only a software change and I suspect an expensive transducer. For what it's worth I write a blog as well, www,davidjanderson.blogspot.com however since I have retired it's slowed down somewhat. Anyway I simply wanted to touch base and say hi. Would you mind if I linked your blog on my blog? Maybe I'll try to learn alittle Norwegian, Fiskekost must be your fishing boat, and Favorittfiske must be your favorite methodology. Thank you again for answering my questions earlier or should I say Takk skal du ha! Funny my grandmothers generation all spoke Norwegian so I know a few words:-)

The perfect settings for Lowrance? A guide on how to set up your 2D-sonar part I.

Perhaps the most repeated question in Facebookgroups and forums regarding marine electronics: "What are the best settings?" The bad news is that there is no uniform answer to that. The good news is that you can adjust settings according to conditions if you have a little knowledge as to what settings you should tweak and why. Here is part 1 of our guide to get the most out of your unit in regards to settings.

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?

Lowrance Elite Ti2 versus Elite FS

  When Lowrance launches a new mid-range unit, it is a big deal. Forums and Facebookgroups light up with questions on the new stuff, differences towards the old stuff and questions on compatibility. As usual, we in Team Colibri will try our best to sort that out, both on a technical level and with a more practical in-your-boat approach.

Lowrance Hook 2 versus Lowrance Hook Reveal

You have to hand it to Lowrance when it comes to the name of their new entry-level line of sonar and chartplotters. We all want to hook up, and what better way to do that then by having our marine electronics reveal to us where the fish are?

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
