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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HDS Carbon 9 I bought my Carbon 9 8 months ago. I am a Walleye tournament fisherman running a Crestliner Raptor 2100 with a Mercury 350 Verado and need a good unit that will show me everything from fish to rocks or weedy bottom and this unit does it all. Love the touch screen option and being able to see the screen in the sun light is a must. Having the ability to run my Motor Guide XI5 from the screen is awesome. Great picture contrast and the ability to see the bottom at high speed. See picture attached I was running 49.9 mph and still see the bottom. Great all around unit with tons of great features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Best I have been using Lowrance for a long time now. I was the first in my area to own an HDS 7 Gen 1 and loved it. Very easy to use. I then upgraded to a Gen 1 8" unit then when the Gen 3s came out I had to have one. Lighting fast still very well pleased. When the CARBONS came out I got a 9" CARBON and put it on my console and the 9" Gen 3 up front. I could not believe how much faster and more details I saw with it. With the new fish Reveal and both units working together it's amazing that I can see individual fish in brush piles. For anyone looking for a great unit easy to read and set up and lighting fast I highly recommend the HDS CARBON UNITS. BILL POOL, LEESBURG, GA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome awesome I love how easy it is to customize the screens to my liking and what I do. I run a 9" flush mounted on the dash and as 12" off to the side on a Cisco mount. The 9" I split 75% sonar and 25% downscan, then on the 12", I go duel maps, one navionics, and one c-map genesis, sometime both navionics with one zoomed out and one zoomed in real tight on the contours. Then I run a thin strip of sidescan on the bottom of the 12". Then I have 5 panels, and plenty of real-estate for everything I want to see, the adjust splits really comes in handy. These units are super fast and can handle anything I give them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome unit! I purchased a 9” Carbon last year and really am impressed. The screen resolution and brightness are awesome. It is just as bright from the side as it is straight on. Plus, if you wear polarized glasses, the gray haze doesn’t appear and the screen stays nice and bright no matter how you turn your head. The processor is super fast with no waiting for the unit to catch up to you as you make selections. And one of the coolest things is being able to show both my front transducer, and my transom transducer, at the same time right next to each other on the same screen. Last, the down and side imaging are incredible. Details galore. I really like the new Carbon series. Lowrance nailed it with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded from HDS Gen 3 - Definite Upgrade! I usually wait until a product has been out for a while before buying the latest and greatest, especially if I've been happy with what I already have. I was perfectly happy with the HDS Gen 3's I owned (9" screens), but when I saw the pixel count on the HDS 9 Carbon's, I was immediately interested. I've read the "clearer, easier to read" claims for years from various manufacturers, and I've been disappointed every time. The Carbon's changed that. These definitely ARE much easier to read in the direct sunlight. The picture is phenomenal. Some ask why I didn't go with the 12" version. I think the 9's have a better picture. If you look into the pixel count of each - 9's have 1280 x 720. 12's have 1280 x 800.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from clarity is insane I have now been running two HDS carbon 9 on my console for over a year. I can honestly say I am very impressed with the Carbons. 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 is out of this world on the 9 as they went from 800 X 400 to 1280 x 720. Detail is phenomenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent GPS/Sonar combo unit I use my Lowrance HDS Carbon with Total Scan Transducer to help make my day on the water easier. I fish a 23' and a 24' bay boat inshore and near shore in and around Sebastian Inlet Florida for Snook, Reds and Tarpon primarily. The bright display helps is the best display I have ever used on the water. I use the side imaging to locate schools of Snook in the inlet as well as locating Tarpon out on the beach and structure when Im fishing offshore. The side imaging helps you to see if the fish are moving around the boat or out of the area you are fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lowrance Carbon Units "Great Product!" I purchased the Lowarnce HDS-9 Carbon last year. I logged 100's of hours on it and it has lived up to the Lowrance reputation of a great product. The screen resolution and clarity is perfect. The touch screen and page options respond extremely quick with the upgrade in the microprocessor. CHIRP functionality will make those bottom holding fish standout! If you are looking for a fantastic product with the highest clarity with standard 2D Sonar with CHIRP as well as Side and Down Imaging look no further.
