StructureScan 3D Skimmer Transducer
Lowrance StructureScan 3D allows anglers to see fish, structure, and bottom contour in a stunning 3-dimensional view. StructureScan 3D imaging scans underwater terrain and fish-holding structure to create a high-resolution, 180°, 3-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, 3-dimensional views are beautifully displayed on the Lowrance HDS Gen3 Carbon Fishfinder Chartplotter.

The contours below the water's surface can be shown to the sides of the boat up to 600' port and starboard with incredibly detailed, high-definition views. StructureScan 3D provides multiple views, including 2-dimensional DownScan Imaging and StructureScan HD, as well as the new, realistic 3-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.

StructureMap Capability - Use live or recorded StructureScan 3D and StructureScan HD logs to create stunning underwater images of lakes, rivers, or the sea floor. StructureMap can be viewed as an overlay and toggled on and off to provide the ultimate in situational awareness in relation to both chart and bottom detail.

DownScan Overlay Technology - Overlays DownScan Imaging onto CHIRP Sonar or Broadband Sounder returns.

TrackBack - To review and save key hot spots. Scroll back through sonar or StructureScan HD imaging history to review structure or fish targets and pinpoint the location with a waypoint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HDS Carbon, Sweet I have now been running a HDS carbon 12 on my bow for over a year. I can honestly say I am very impressed with the Carbon. The processor speed of the unit for mapping you can zoom in and out very quick with no lagging, screens come up very quick and the user interface is so simple. You can access any menu and make changes to the unit within a few screens not like some other brands and their clunky menu system. Set up of the unit was easy and understandable. The clarity could be sharper as they didn't increase the display resolution as I would have expected as they did on the HDS Carbon 9 which I have two of at my console.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome unit! I have three HDS Carbon 12's on my boat all networked together with a 3D StructureScan module, a Point 1 GPS antenna and a WM-3 Sirius Weather module.. I really like the new Carbon units with the latest software updates for FishReveal on the Downscan screen. And the side imaging is significantly improved from what I have seen. I also really like the flexibility a person has to set up the screen views per your own preference and how easy it is to do with the touchscreen. Sometimes I'll view two different maps at the same time to compare the information each has. Overall, the brighter screen and faster processor makes it the best I have ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lowrance Does it Again! Just when you think a fish finder can't get any better, Lowrance proves you wrong! I started out using a Lowrance Elite 7, then upgraded to a Lowrance HDS 12 and 9 Gen3. I loved my Gen 3 but the only "issue" I had with them is I found them to have a bit of lag when navigating through the menus. Since then I have upgraded to the HDS Carbons and what a difference! These units are fast! Zero lag and the quality of the SolarMAX screen is on a level of it's own! Thank you, Lowrance for building quality products that year after year lead the field in technology advancement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate Setup I put two Carbon 12’s at the console of my Ranger to get as much screen space as I could. Now I can split the Structure Scan to look left on one and right on the other and still have screen leftover to add map and downscan. I can see every little detail on the bottom. The features I like most about the Carbon is the easy of networking all the units together, SolarMax screen and they are fast I mean real fast. I also add a Point-1 antenna and now no more map spinning. This setup has allowed me to maximize my time on the water for catching fish not just fishing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Numerous features I ordered my new boat with a 12” carbon at the dash and a 9” on the front. This is my first experience with touch screen units and they are impressive. The units are very responsive with graphics that are vivid, even in full daylight. The ability to monitor items on the NEMA network is very useful. It is also great that they can connect to my home wireless network and download updates. My only suggestion is for configuration presets so that a beginner like myself can set the unit up for shallow fresh water with one or two clicks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Satisfied Purchased this Carbon 12 about a month ago upgrading from a HDS 12 Gen2. All I can say is it is like night and day....crisp, clear display with fast screen updates. Also allowed me to use chirp enabling high speed fish detection. As I fish mainly for stripers, this makes my fishing more efficient. Also allowed me to upgrade software gaining the fish reveal capability. I have been using Lowrance products for over 30 years and I can definitely attest to the improved capability of this new software. In a word.....AWESOME!!! I can't thank you enough for the fish finding capabilities the Carbon 12 and the new software provides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING PRODUCT!!!!!!!!! I have been using Lowrance units for 15 years now and I always say this unit is awesome! How could it ever get any better?! Somehow Lowrance comes out with another unit to top the one before. It's amazing how the unit gets better and better, plus more user friendly. I truly believe Lowrance units have made my Fishing more productive, plus I've won money that I know I wouldn't have if I didn't have the Lowrance unit I have. The best part for me is that out of the 7 Lowrance units I've owned I have yet to have any issues with any. I can not be more thankful for that. I also fish year round, from freezing to 100 degree temperatures. Freshwater to brackish water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome unit! I currently have 3 HDS Carbon 12's on my new Lund 2175 Pro V. One is rigged on the console, one on the bow, and one at the transom so one is visible from anywhere in the boat. I have them all networked together with both NMEA with a Point 1 antenna and Ethernet and the Lowrance 3D. With all the units networked, I can share map data, sonar data and set up the screen views on each as I want so that I can view the sonar from my bow mount MotorGuide transducer while at the same time viewing the Downscan at the transom. And the side imaging can be viewed from any unit, right or left or both. With the two Ethernet ports on each unit...I also have a Sirius WM-3 weather module which is a big plus out here in Montana where we aren't always able to get cell coverage for weather.....but I can get the real time weather and radio from the Sirius via Satellite anywhere, and anytime. I use the Sonar Chart Live a lot and it is pretty awesome to be able to get real time, on the water mapping while you are fishing. I have come to rely very much on my Lowrance units to find and then catch fish. When I see what I want, I get pretty excited. I am an avid walleye fisherman and finding them sometimes is the hard part. Once I find them they generally are not that hard to catch. I spend a fair amount to have what I have for electronics but frankly it is some of the best money I spend. Even though I am retired and a part time fishing guide I still have a limited amount of time I can spend on the water and my Lowrance units make it as productive and as efficient as it can be.
