StructureScan® 3D

Lowrance StructureScan® 3D allows anglers to see fish, structure and bottom contour in a stunning three-dimensional view. StructureScan® 3D imaging scans underwater terrain and fish-holding structure to create a high-resolution, 180-degree, three-dimensional view beneath your boat.  With this unique imaging view, anglers gain a better understanding of where fish and structure are located in relation to their boat. The picture-like, three-dimensional views are displayed on the Lowrance HDS Gen3 series of fishfinder/chartplotters, when used in combination with the StructureScan 3D Skimmer® transducer and module.

StructureScan® 3D

StructureScan 3D is powered by a multi-beam sonar technology that produces revealing images with stunning detail by converting scans of underwater terrain and fish-holding structure into high-resolution, 180-degree, three-dimensional views.

Easy-to-Understand Sonar Images

View 3D images from any angle with ScanTrack™ pan-tilt-rotate control using on-screen touch commands and easy-to-use, preset viewing positions.

Find Key Fishing Areas Faster

StructureScan® 3D allows anglers to more easily understand where fish and fish-holding structure are located in relation to their boat. By slowly idling over a potential fishing area with the wide, 180-degree scanning range, anglers can quickly search for key areas and cover ─ such as abrupt depth changes, points, ditches, rockpiles, brushpiles, weedbeds standing timber, wrecks and more.

Unrivaled SideScan Image Clarity

To ensure the clearest possible SideScan views, the StructureScan 3D transducer design has been enhanced with an increased number of sensors for greater imaging performance.

3D Scanning with Lowrance Gen3

High Definition (HD) and Super-Wide 3D Scanning

The contours below the water's surface can be shown to the sides of the boat ─ up to 600 feet port and starboard ─ with incredibly detailed, high-definition views.  StructureScan® 3D provides multiple views, including two-dimensional DownScan Imaging™ and StructureScan® HD, and the new, realistic three-dimensional views.  Using preset virtual point-of-view angles or ScanTrack™ pan-tilt-rotate control mode, you can adjust the view and perspective beneath your boat. Combine custom HD and 3D views to increase your understanding of how fish relate to cover and to search fishing areas more effectively.

Super wide scanning from Lowrance

Leading Edge™ Scanning Reference

The Leading Edge™ scanning reference provides a clear graphical illustration of sonar beams as they intersect with bottom contours. The depth and range of the most recently scanned area are shown as red fan-shaped markers directly under the boat. Leading Edge also includes a depth scale that shows greater depth detail as you zoom in, giving you a better sense of target depth.  

3D Scanning from Lowrance

SelectScan™ Target Identification

SelectScan™ automatically shades fish-holding cover and suspended targets in a color that contrasts the selected color palette, making target identification quicker and easier than ever before. 

3D StructureScan from Lowrance with Gen3 units

Vertical Enhancement Control

Vertical Enhancement is a user-selectable scale that will apply on-screen emphasis to vertical drops and crucial depth contour changes, making them easier to identify relative to the surrounding underwater terrain. Vertical Enhancement makes even the slightest depth changes more visible. 

 Vertical Enhancement with 3D Sonar Imaging

Waypoint Overlay

Revisiting fishing areas, structure and other underwater features is easy with the Waypoint Overlay feature. Use the waypoint keypad to save a waypoint at the boat location, or switch to cursor mode, and save a waypoint over specific targets, baitfish or cover.

Automatic 3D Image Settings

Fine-tuned 3D image settings are set by your HDS Gen 3 default configuration and StructureScan 3D Module. Adjustments can be made to Surface Clarity and Contrast settings using the on-screen slider-bar. Surface Clarity reduces on-screen surface clutter, by decreasing the sensitivity of the receiver near the surface. Contrast lightens/darkens the color palette to make fish and structure easier to see.

Ethernet Connectivity

Ethernet ports allow connectivity for up to three networked devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product This is one of the best products Lowrance has offered an Angler to have an edge in winning tournaments. The 3D views are simply awesome and you totally eliminate the guess work. If you don't have this you should get this immediately. One of the best tools I have in my boat. You gotta love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working properly Paid a fortune for HDS 9 3D bundle. Sent 3D module back still not reading Structure. Side scan not clear as advertised very disappointed with this product and 3D structure scan is a joke still don't work like its suppose to. I wasted a lot of money and regret ever buying it. Now I have junk I can't use and says you can see display in the sun. WRONG!!! Can't see it at all. Unit come out of box with out the firm ware for 3D module. Had down load and install my self.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW Seriously the coolest thing I have on my boat. The detail is unbelievable and with the 3d view even my dad understands what he is looking at. I have only touched the surface of the capabilities of the 3d view, but can't wait to get out on the water again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible View I purchased this 2 months ago, what an incredible experience I have had with this unit,n I fished lakes that I have fished for years. Am now seeing things I have driven over and never seen before!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge improvement over older gen StructureScan This is a game changer! This technology gives you a more clear and accurate picture of structure and fish out to the side and below your boat. Use this in concert with your Motorguide Xi5 and you are guaranteed to precisely locate and target fish on those spots on a spot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, readt to upgrade I bought this unit over a year ago, I've been bass fishing for about 20 plus yrs I cant believe the difference it make when find fish and structure, I just wish I wouldn't have been so cheap and bought it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bringing clear pictures to a new level. I own structure scan HD but had a chance to use my partners 3D and could not believe how crisp the images are and how far you can see in shallow water. I was able to clearly identify stumps over 100 feet away while idling in only 2 feet of water. I did not use the actual 3D imagery but this set up is worth it just for the high quality structure scan imaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extended side scan distance! I have zero issues with the 3D accessory, being able to zoom and twist and view the structure from all angles is amazing. When used for side scanning the distance has been increased quite a bit.
