Lowrance SpotlightScan Sonar
Lowrance, a leading brand in marine electronics since 1957, has announced the new SpotlightScan Sonar trolling-motor transducer. Introducing a new level of angler-controlled, surround-scanning underwater views, the new sonar solution provides picture-like images of key fishing areas on compatible HDS Gen2 or HDS Gen2 Touch fishfinder/chartplotter displays. Similar to the way a scanning spotlight reveals objects in the dark, SpotlightScan Sonar clearly pinpoints structure and fish targets ahead and around your boat without disturbing key areas before you fish them.
Offering the unique ability to identify productive areas prior to making the first cast, Lowrance SpotlightScan Sonar helps anglers save valuable time on the water and focus on the most productive fishing spots. The SpotlightScan Sonar trolling-motor transducer operates at a frequency of 455/800 kHz with a maximum surround-scanning range of 150 feet. Designed to provide the best possible view both around and beneath your boat, the SpotlightScan Sonar transducer also features DownScan Imaging and Broadband Sounder technology. DownScan Imaging (455/800 kHz) offers easy-to-understand images of fish and structure, and award-winning Broadband Sounder (83/200 kHz) technology is ideal for marking fish arches and tracking lure action.
The SpotlightScan transducer is quickly installed by attaching it to any bow-mounted, cable-steer, foot-control trolling motor. Twin scanning beams provide lightning-fast refresh rates, and beam indicators or “spokes” are visible on the HDS Gen2 display to guide adjustments on rotation or scanning speeds for the best possible underwater image.
Protected by a one-year limited warranty and the Lowrance Advantage Service program, SpotlightScan Sonar can be purchased for $499 from authorized Lowrance dealers and distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada beginning in January 2014.
