Lowrance adds autotune sonar to fishfinders
Latest Hook2 fishfinders to eliminate manual adjustments.
Fishing electronics specialist Lowrance has unveiled its latest Hook2 series of fishfinders/chartplotters featuring autotuning sonar which is designed to automatically correct sonar settings for the clearest underwater view without anglers having to make manual adjustments to their settings.
The new series will also feature a new wide-angle Broadband Sounder and CHIRP sonar which Lowrance says will deliver more sonar coverage than most fishfinders on the market today. SideScan and DownScan Imaging are also available.
The Hook2 series will be available in three sonar categories:
- 3-in-1 sonar with High CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan Imaging
- 2-in-1 sonar with High CHIRP and DownScan Imaging, and
- Broadband Sounder
These will be known as the TripleShot, SplitShot and Bullet models respectively.
Hook2 fishfinder/chartplotters will be offered in 12-, 9-, 7-, 5- and 4-inch display sizes.The Bullet four-inch model will have a new wide-screen design, providing room for additional sonar history versus vertical four-inch display models. Most models will also feature full navigational capability and pre-loaded C-Map cartography.
“With Hook2, our goal was to capture the spirit of the Lowrance customer who values enhanced sonar and imaging, simple controls and clear displays – all at an extremely competitive price,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico. “From Autotuning sonar settings, wide-angle sonar with double the coverage of most fishfinders and the easiest-to-use, push-button design, Hook2 combines powerful performance and simplicity into a fishfinder every angler will love.”
Ranging in price from $129 for the 4x model to $2,149 for the 12, the new Hook2 units are due to be available in late 2017. Details at www.lowrance.com/en-au.
