Text Message and Phone Notification Display (HDS Carbon) Compatible with Bluetooth-enabled HDS Carbon displays, the software update allows users to quickly and easily pair their smart phone to bring text message functionality to their unit. Android features include incoming text message display and reply, new message and message template creation, and access to message history and call logs. iOS features include display of incoming text messages and call log.
Advanced Engine Integration Following the introduction of Yamaha engine integration on HDS Carbon and HDS Gen3 displays in the Lowrance 18.1 update, new 18.2 software extends this functionality to 7-, 9-, and 12-inch Elite Ti displays and adds to the systems engine calibration and alarm capabilities. In addition, Evinrude customers can now enjoy a fully integrated experience on the same series of displays. When connected via NMEA 2000® to an Evinrude control head, functionality is automatically unlocked and information is easily accessible from the engine sidebar. Evinrude engine integration includes fluid level monitoring, advanced engine configuration and winterization functionality.
“Once again, we are delivering valuable new features to our customers as a free update to their Lowrancedisplays,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO and president, Navico. “We are confident Lowrance anglers will appreciate the enhancements our software brings to their fishing experience.”
Lowrance owners can access the free 18.2 software update by visiting the Downloads page on the Lowrance website.
