Preloaded Inland Lake Maps with Extraordinary Detail.
The Lowrance HDS-5 Gen2 Multifunction GPS/Fishfinder brings new meaning to the term bright display. The sunlight viewable, 480 x 480 5’ SOLORMAX PLUS DISPLAY enhances viewability and creates a wider viewing angle, Lowrance even backlit the keypad for nighttime use. The built-in broadband fishfinder provides phenomenal separation of fish targets from bottom and locating your position is also a cinch for HDS-5 with its super-sensitive 16-channel internal GPS antenna. The Generation 2 models have double the memory and twice the processor speed of the previous versions which means lightning-fast chart panning and zooming speeds. If you find yourself in a situation for an external antenna, like a pilot house or enclosed bridge, you can always add the Lowrance Point-1 GPS antenna.
The Lowrance HDS-5 Generation 2 High-Definition Digital Fishfinder uses broadband technology to provide the best picture of fish and bottom possible. The digital filters reduce false echos and help to distinguish fish from structure like rock piles, stump beds, drop-offs and ledges. You will also see a large increase in performance of tracking bottom at higher speeds and in rougher sea conditions from older analog fishfinders. The HDS5 also has an adjustable zoom scale of up to 8X and can operate up to a maximum of 5000’ depth.
Lowrance has partnered with MotorGuide to create a revolutionary link to offer boaters an entire new level of precision and control when it comes to navigation. PinpointConnect is a seamless interface that links all Lowrance HDS Gen2 and Gen2 Touch models to MotorGuide’s Xi5 Wireless Trolling Motor for advanced navigation. It’s now easier than ever to stay locked onto a submerged wreck, follow a route you’ve created on your Gen2 Chartplotter of an old road bed, or even lock in the cruise control to maintain a constant speed against the wind or current. It is top priority of this partnership to provide users with the crucial tools needed to catch more fish and enhance their overall experience on the water for years to come.
The Lowrance HDS-5 Gen2 comes pre-loaded with all of the maps that most boaters would ever need. The built-in enhanced US base map includes over 100,000 bodies of water and 5,000 enhanced lakes with high-detail shorelines and depth contours. Also built-in to this model is Lowrance’s Lake Insight mapping. Lake Insight provides life-like perspective of bottom structure and topography, fishing points of interest, marked fishing areas, fish habitat areas and boat ramps. Lake Insight coverage area includes the Great Lakes and more than 500 Fishing Hot Spots Lakes.
