The following review was written by the editorial department of Chesapeake Bay Magazine.




Lowrance recently introduced a new LSS-1 StructureScan side-looking sonar module ($600) for its HDS series of electronics displays. Pairing a compact, dual-frequency transducer (455/800 kliohertz) with a Lowrance Skimmer or through-hull transducer, the StructureScan module works through the HDS Broadband sounder to provide simultaneous SideScan and DownScan imaging and deliver remarkably detailed bottom images. On the HDS-8 and HDS-10 displays, the screen can be divided in thirds to add a traditional color broadband image. Lowrance Electronics; 800-324-1356; www.lowrance.com
