  1. Hi Lars. Do you have experience with structure scan with different sonars or transducers in saltwaters? Which is the best and how deep are you satisfied with the results?

    1. Hi. As Lars is mostly a fresh-water angler he asked me to respond to your question. The by far best option for StructureScan in saltwater is StructureScan 3D (module and transducer) compatible with Lowrance HDS and Simrad NSS. The second best option is in my eyes the LSS-2. The Active Imaging transducers ("2 in 1" and "3 in 1") seem to strugle more in saltwater then the older LSS-2, especially on DownScan. As for what depths it works in, bot SS 3D and LSS-2 has the exact same DownScan, usable in most conditions down to abot 30-ish meters, and in good conditions down to about 70-ish meters. For SideScan your main issue is the size of your screen. In deep water you need to have very long range in order to cover structure and not just the watercoloumn, and as that range goes up the sheer amount of data makes what you are seeing very small on your screen. I have tracked wrecks on SideScan down to around 70 meters, but any deeper that that and you will need a BIG screen to actually see anything. With the typicall 9 to 12 inch display I would say that 50 meters is about as deep as you will get useful information. Regards Erik

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.

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

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?
