Not sure if there are any lowrance guys on here but that new update they released yesterday is pretty nice. It's call fish reveal and it colors the fish markers on the di . It pretty much makes the 2d sonar obsolete although I have used 2 d so long I don't know if I will stop. It also adds a few more different color pallets for some of the units.
Just wondering if any lowrance users on here have looked at it.

So they're going just DI & SI? What units do the update cover?

I know a lot of people buy expensive units and never learn to use the side and down imaging
they just use 2d and miss all the great functions of the unit.
if that is all they use they could do it a lot cheaper just a basic unit run on high speed ducer.

HDS Gen3, Carbon and Ti units will be able to run it. It looks pretty cool and does show the targets a lot more vibrate. It appears to have an option to turn on or off. I do like the additional color pallets that it offers and it is funny that I see one color better than my son can and he sees one better than I can.

I have a gen 3 HDS 12 on the dash and I updated it. Yes the fish reveal is nice.....recently though my unit has been acting strange. The 2d sonar will stop reading. I sent it back to Lowrance for repairs, then got it back and it worked fine for a few trips then the same thing keeps coming back. It will stop reading then start again. Its a known software glitch that is well documented on the Facebook group called, "Lowrance Electronics Owners - NO SALES, INFO ONLY". If any of you are on Facebook and own Lowrance electronincs this is THE place to go for informative dialog on these units. I highly recommend you check it out.....SO much info is passed around including screen shots and videos of the units in action.

Humminbird has one also on facebook called Humminbird side imaging. That gives lots of
information for Hummingbird owners and shots from the mega are very clear, it also
covers linking to Minn kota
