The new Lowrance Broadband 3G™ Radar for HDS goes more than the extra nautical mile, now with 30% more range! Featuring Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology, Lowrance Broadband Radar innovation delivers superior target detection and viewing separation, ease of operation, and higher level navagational peace-of-mind. With zero radiation hazard, it's the safest choice for more boats, including fishing, sports/cruising and sail boats.

30% More Range

Broadband 3G Radar clearly marks more targets farther away from your boat. So, you enjoy exclusive, close-in (6.5 ft/2 m) target detection of Broadband Radar™ technology, with the addition of exposing distant targets previously unseen before.

Unparalleled Short Range Target discrimination

Lowrance Broadband Radar provides amazing target resolution, even at an unprecedented 1/32 nm range. Docks, channel markers, moored vessels and other critical targets are displayed with pronounced clarity and separation, for added safety and confidence in close quarters. Broadband Radar™ technology eliminates the "main bang" of pulse radar — an obscured viewing "dead zone" immediately around the boat — which prevents display of any close-in hazards.

Virtually No Radiation

Lowrance Broadband Radar™ transmits at 1/10,000 the power of typical pulse radars, emitting 5-times less energy than an average cell phone! So, Broadband 3G™ Radar is safe to mount in locations never before possible. Plus, with the lowest DC power draw of any X-band marine radar, it's the first and only radar ideally suited for sailboats and other fishing or cruising boats with limited power.

Navigation in an Instant

No more waiting 2-3 minutes for a pulse radar magnetron to warm up. The 100% solid-state Broadband 3G™ Radar design provides InstantOn™ navigation in seconds. In darkness, fog or foul weather, you can view your surroundings, near and far, instantly. Ideal for sailboats and other boats wanting to save power, especially at anchor.


Solid-state technology produces an immediate, accurate on-screen image, without lengthy warm-up delay of magnetron pulse radars.

Low Power Consumption

Ideal for boats of any size - sail, cruise or fish.

Automatic Clarity

Proven automatic harbor/marina and offshore modes.

MARPA Target Tracking

Aquisition and precise tracking of up to 10 targets for an added measure of collision-avoidance safety.*

Radar/Chart Overlay

Merges radar with cartography in a detail-rich display.*

Dual Guard Zones

Easy-to-set single or dual guard zones with alarms alert you to targets entering or leaving your designated zones - boats, land masses and buoys. Protect yourself from more angles.

Crystal-Clear Image

Fantastic for tight maneuvers in marinas or in conditions of limited visibility.

Quick Installation

No reason to open the dome, no tune or zero-mile adjustment, and no radar-licensed technician required.

Safe - Extremely Low Emissions

Safer than any other radar currently on the market and emitting less radiation than a mobile phone - so it can be mounted anywhere.

High-Speed Mode

Select 36 RPM for almost instant updating at less than 2 nm.
