HDS touch

A couple of months ago Lowrance announced their new range of HDS touch models, available in 7", 9" and 12" sizes. We were eagerly awaiting these models as the standard models are very powerful, and a super easy touch screen interface to go with this was exactly what it needed. We have now installed a couple of the 7" models and can confirm these are the best Lowrance models that have been released by far. The unit combines the ease of use with a good sized touch screen with the extremely good broadband sounder, which has so far been the highlight of the HDS models.

As a thick dollop of icing on top,  the touch units now have Structure Scan HD and structure mapping built in, meaning you will just need to purchase the structure scan transducer if you would like to use this amazing technology. In particular this would be very handy on the various uncharted lakes around New Zealand, as you will now easilly be able to make your own charts of what the bottom is like (although not the depths)

When bought through the official New Zealand retailer (such as ourselves!) the units come bundled with a Lowrance 50/200kHz transducer and Navionics Gold charts INCLUDED. You will also have a full factory backed warranty and support  and of course access to our combined 40 years of marine electronics experience. Pricing starts at $2599 for the 7", $4199 for the 9" and $5699 for the 12" model. We recommend you go for the upgrade pack - Upgrade to Platinum plus charts and get the Structure Scan transducer - All for an extra $400 - This will give you a serious fishing weapon.
