Lowrance announces biggest-ever plotter

Anglers will not find a better combination of power and precision on the market.”
The new model features the SolarMAX screen technology which is exclusive to the Carbon range offering 1920x1080 HD resolution for greater clarity and sharpness. Features of the new unit include dual-core processing, StructureScan 3D with SideScan and DownScan Imaging, StructureMap, Broadband Radar and SiriusXM Weather Chart Overlay. It also includes Live Network Sonar which enables anglers to view two independent, live sonar sources at different locations, Bluetooth control of multiple Power-Pole shallow water anchors, and Bluetooth audio streaming from the SonicHub2 marine entertainment system.
