Lowrance has expanded its HDS Gen2 range to include the new wide-format, touchscreen HDS Gen2 Touch line. Available in 7-, 9- and 12-inch screen sizes, the units not only serve as powerful chartplotters, but can be integrated with Lowrance Broadband Radar, a SonicHub marine audio server and a LWX-1 Sirius satellite weather/radio receiver. The sunlight-viewable touchscreens make panning and zooming fast and responsive, and are operated using an easy-to-learn icon-driven menu.
Units are also equipped with a number of push-button options, allowing operators to remain in complete control in any situation. Each HDS Gen2 Touch can be easily networked, is pre-loaded with Insight USA inland and coastal cartography, and includes a standard SD card slot for loading additional cartography.
