A few Lowrance HDS screenshots
« on: February 16, 2011, 10:49:02 PM »
All the electronics discussions over the last few days inspired me to go out to the garage and take a few photos of my HDS-5 in action as a chart plotter.  The camera made the images look a lot more grainy than the screen actually is, and the lighting wasn't too great.  Anyway, it gives some ideas.  I will paste a couple here, you can view them all in my gallery at:;su=user;cat=72;u=4

The built-in Nauticpath charts, showing the 2d image of a certain bean near Sequim...

The same area, using the Nauticpath's 3d function...

Using the Navionics Platinum chip for the Columbia, with the "Fish-n-Chips" detail, 3d image of a rather popular springer trolling lane...
