  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:-)

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 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 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 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

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
