Lowrance LCX-111C HD & LowranceNET System
First came the selection and the building of the LowranceNET systems we want to use in the boats. We wanted both units to share the same GPS information, fuel tank level, water speed and fuel flow date to both units. We went to the LowranceNET designer web page http://www.lowrance.com/LowranceNet/LowranceNet.asp and built our system on line and verified Approved the system was assemble correctly for the type system we desired in the SU boats.

Next came the installation.
We picked the LCX111C HD units to upgrade our current LCX104C units.
Lowrance has completely redone their successful LCX series with enhanced screen performance and even faster processors. These big bold screens are available in three sizes of bright sunlight readable color or an economical 16 grayscale version in all the models feature brilliant cold cathode backlighting. No matter which screen you choose Lowrance provides a high-resolution display to perform in the toughest conditions. These chart plotters include a 12 parallel channel GPS/WAAS receiver or position accuracy to 3 meters. They have all navigation features you expect including alarms; graphic icons; 37 Map Ranges from .05 nautical miles to 4000 nautical miles; 1000 waypoints; 100 routes in up to 100 way points each and 10,000 points of track. Lowrance provides more mapping choices with built in base maps optional mapping Accessory pack for creating custom maps on your PC, compatibility with Navionics XL3 Gold or Platinum XL hot maps. Our HD models came with a built-in 20GB internal hard drive preloaded with all the charts you could ever need for coastal and inland navigation in the continental US including enhanced shorelines, navaids, depth contours, roads, and 2 million points of interest.
But best of all is the powerful sonar. The sonar features of this unit are impressive and include fish reveal to show fish hidden by surface clutter; thermo cline’s or weed beds; Hyper Scroll to locate display returns at high speed; adjustable ping speed; Colorline technology that separates fish from bottom structure; ASP automatic operation; advance fish ID; and unique FastTrack feature displays flasher style returns and signal strength in a vertical line; split screen frame zooms in on targets and structure in one window and still monitors the entire were water column in the other. Our models came with a duel 50/200KHz frequency high-speed transom mount transducers. The LCX series accepts up to two optional multimedia cards that are not only offer the capability record; store or review waypoints routes and tracks but to actually record your voyages and sonar graphs for later viewing. This kind of innovative thinking has created one of the best most versatile lines in the industry.
