New software is available for Lowrance® HDS Carbon multifunction displays.
Fixes and Improvements
Dual Channel CHIRP / Dual Transducer compatibility - this software enables Lowrance HDS Carbon units to use both sonar ports for conventional/CHIRP sonar to allow:
- A TotalScan™ transducer to be used in conjunction with a standard 7-pin "blue connector" transducer
Using a separate 7-pin transducer alongside TotalScan is ideal for customers who mount the TotalScan transducer higher on the transom to keep it out of the water when the boat is on plane.
- Simultaneous display of both channels of a dual channel CHIRP transducer.
- Simultaneous display of two single channel CHIRP transducers.
Dual Channel CHIRP will not work if there is a LSS-1, LSS-HD, HDS Gen1, HDS Gen2, HDS Gen2 Touch or Mercury® VesselView® connected to the Ethernet network. These units will cause the system to revert to Legacy Mode.
