New Instrument Page An update to the look and feel of the Instrument Page gives users the capability to use preset layouts or to completely customize the information displayed on screen.

Power-Pole CHARGE Compatibility The Power-Pole CHARGE is the world's first AC/DC and bi-directional DC/DC, all-in-one marine battery manager and charger. It's designed specifically for boats that have up to three trolling motor batteries and one 12V main cranking battery. CHARGE is the first bi-directional power management system that has the ability to move power back and forth from battery to battery.

When plugged into shore power it will charge up to three auxiliary batteries and balance them while automatically charging the main cranking battery. When the motor is running, CHARGE will automatically fill the cranking battery, then charge and balance the auxiliary batteries. When necessary, it moves power to the cranking battery from auxiliary batteries to maintain preset minimum engine battery levels, so you can always start your motor. Best of all, CHARGE gives you real-time battery status and power movement on your smart phone, tablet or compatible Lowrance® display.

Sonar Log Upload Simplification Under "Storage" (previously called "Files"), there is a new quick-access sonar log icon. This new organization provides quick access to Waypoint Management, Sonar Logs and the capability to see active upload/download transfers.

Dual Mode Wi-Fi The internal Wi-Fi on HDS Live/Carbon can now connect to the internet and perform screen mirroring via the Link App at the same time. Previously, there were two Wi-Fi modes and users would switch between Client OR Access Point. The wireless page has been updated with wizards to help users connect the MFD to the internet and to a mobile device.
