Get a robust package of navigation and fishfinding software on a massive 16" touchscreen with the Lowrance HDS-16.

Don't miss this Deal! This 16" display is a brand new unit in the box and includes a TotalScan transom mount transducer! Get this high definition, sunlight-viewable display with WiFI and Bluetooth for less than most 12" displays!

TotalScan™ marries up Broadband sonar, Chirp Sonar, StructureScanHD and Downscan capability to target fish and search for fish-holding structures with the same transducer.

The Carbon 16 is now available with Active/Live Imaging capability. Active Imaging is the same consistent and detailed clarity of StructureScan, but without the loss of detail for pings farther away from the boat. Download the software update required for this feature here.

Purchase the required Active Imaging transducer here and you are ready to catch the big one!

The Carbon 16's dual-core processor gives you lightning-fast refreshes of screen splits, zooms, overlays, and app changes. Its "smartphone-like" operation makes using the Carbon 16 second nature. Bluetooth and Wi‑Fi connectivity notify you of software updates, and the Service Assistant feature allows you to transmit detailed reports of your network to Lowrance technical advisors for hands-on assistance.

Just Plug and Play to a myriad of accessories via NMEA2000 / NMEA0183 connectivity and you have a sleek installation with tons of great navigational, fishing and engine information capability.
