Lowrance has unveiled a new fishfinder/chart plotter called Eagle, with features that include high-definition enhanced sonar, FishReveal technology, and C-Map charting with Genesis Live.

The Eagle fishfinder is an entry-level product with prices starting at $119. Display sizes are 4 inch, 5 inch, 7 inch and 9 inch, making Eagle usable aboard yacht tenders and toys, in addition to smaller boats that are part of an owner’s fleet.

“Eagle brings Lowrance’s high-definition sonar to our most easy-to-use fishfinder, providing the ultimate tool for weekend anglers,” Jeremiah Clark, vice president and general manager of fishing systems at Navico Group, stated in a press release. “Developed to make fishing simpler and more enjoyable, Eagle is quick to install—whether on a boat or kayak—and features enhanced autotuning sonar and comprehensive C-Map charts.”

Eagle has newly designed TripleShot HD and SplitShot HD that Lowrance says allow for improved clarity, depth performance and sensitivity, resulting in excellent performance under the surface. FishReveal on DownScan helps anglers identify fish separately from weeds and structures, making it easier to see what they’re trying to catch versus what they don’t want to snag on the hook.

Autotuning sonar is designed to optimize the device settings from the start, eliminating the hassle of anglers needing to constantly configure settings (that’s good news: more time for actual fishing). An improved twist-locking connector should allow for easier installation and removal, making Eagle a portable solution for any type of fishing. Boaters can simply connect and cast, Lowrance says.

Eagle also has a new, rugged design with an IPS screen for improved resolution, clarity and visibility in the marine environment, including with the types of polarized sunglasses boaters often wear in direct sunlight. Lowrance says the new range of imaging color palettes also allows anglers to adapt the display for changing conditions, so as sun and clouds shift in the sky, the images can adjust on the screen.

High-resolution C-Map inland charts for the United States are pre-loaded, with coverage of more than 17,000 American lakes and a range of coastal charting bundles. Eagle also lets users create custom half-foot contour maps of local lakes or unchartered water—in real time—with Genesis Live.

Is there an SD card slot on the Eagle model from Lowrance? Yes. This SD card slot can be used for software updates, Genesis Live recording and charting add-ons.
