Lowrance Insight Genesis Mapping

Lowrance released its latest mapping program Insight Genesis which allows you the user to create your own maps from sonar logs.  All you have to do is record your sonar data while you are on the water.  Then remove your SD card when you get home and upload the logs with Lowrance’s handy desktop utility.  Within a few minutes you’ll receive an email with a link to your custom map.

Here is a sample of a short sonar log from a couple of years ago that I uploaded yesterday.

Here is the Navionics chart for the same area to show the difference.

Lowrance allows you to view the maps online for free.  A onetime download is $19.95 to use with a HDS Gen2 Touch unit.  The Standard 1 year subscription is $99.95 and that allows maps to be used on 2 HDS Gen2 Touch units and a 4 hour scanning time.  This also allows you to merge maps from different trips for even greater detail.  The Premium subscription is $299.95/year and offers use on 4 HDS Gen2 Touch and bottom hardness, vegetation, weather tools, and other trending features.

Here is the link to get started on this https://insightstore.lowrance.com/insightgenesis

Innovation That Will Give You the Competitive Edge

ICAST is just around the corner for 2012 and as usual we will see many new and innovative products that will fill the shelves in 2013.  With expectations of what is to come I thought I would take a look at some of the latest technologies that are currently on the market that will give you the competitive edge.

Having the most up to date charts is one of the best ways to find the hotspots.  Navionics Freshest Data update program is the best way to have the most current information on your chart.  Freshest Data allows the users to make changes to the charts via their smartphone and, once verified, the information is then shared through the Freshest Data layer on the chart.

Lowrance’s new StructureMap feature available on the HDS Gen2 models is something that really shook the sonar world this year.  Interpreting side imaging sonar is something most felt was too difficult to understand.  By overlaying the imaging sonar onto the map screen it took all the guess work out of where that piece of structure is in relation to your boat.  Not only that but you can also now see your waypoints and side imaging on one screen.

Most of the electronics gadgets on your boat are designed to help you find fish, well how about something that can bring the fish to you?  The Hydrowave is an underwater speaker connected to a small display/control box that is meant to stimulate fish into feeding.  The speaker emits sounds of panicking shiners, or feeding shad.

Hummingbird has hit a home run with their DI units.  These models incorporate Down Imaging and traditional sonar into one unit for the best of both worlds.  The Down Imaging sonar provides high detail structure view great for finding and identifying the structure you are fishing.  While the traditional sonar is great for higher speed use and marking fish targets around the structure.

All of these products are available at Radioworld and will surely help you get that edge over the fish or if you are a tournament angler…the edge over the competition!
