Ranging in price from $99 to $1,499 and scheduled for December 2017 delivery, the HOOK2 fishfinder/chartplotter will be sold by authorized Lowrance dealers and distributors throughout the United States and Canada.
At the heart of the world’s easiest-to-use HOOK2 fishfinder/chartplotter series is Lowrance Autotuning sonar – a new, game-changing solution that actively corrects sonar settings for the clearest underwater view. Now, anglers can spend more time fishing and less time making manual adjustments to their sonar settings. Most models will also feature full navigational capability and pre-loaded, high-detail mapping HOOK2 is not only easy to use, it’s also a powerful performer on the water. Anglers can cover more water in less time with 2X wider sonar coverage with new Lowrance wide-angle Broadband SounderTM and CHIRP sonar – providing more sonar coverage of most fishfinders on the market today. SideScan and DownScan ImagingTM complete the HOOK2 sonar arsenal on select models, ensuring anglers can view life-like images of fishing-holding structure to both sides and below the boat.
HOOK2 fishfinder/chartplotters will be offered in 12-, 9-, 7-, 5- and 4-inch display sizes, and most models will also feature full navigational capability and pre-loaded, high-detail mapping with 1-foot contours of more than 3,000 U.S lakes. HOOK2 coastal models will be available with a US/Canada Navionics® Nav+ mapping card.
HOOK2 fishfinder-only models – with the exception of the sonar-only HOOK2 4x Bullet – include a built-in GPS Plotter (without charts) for saving waypoints, following trails and navigating to favorite fishing spots.
“With HOOK2, our goal was to capture the spirit of the Lowrance customer who values enhanced sonar and imaging, simple controls and clear displays – all at an extremely competitive price,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico. “From Autotuning sonar settings, wide-angle sonar with double the coverage of most fishfinders and the easiest-to-use, push-button design, HOOK2 combines powerful performance and simplicity into a fishfinder every angler will love.”
The new HOOK2 series will be available in three easy-to-install, value-priced sonar categories to meet every angler’s needs – 3-in-1 sonar with High CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan Imaging; 2-in-1 sonar with High CHIRP and DownScan Imaging; and proven Broadband SounderTM, respectively known as TripleShotTM, SplitShotTM and Bullet. Bullet 4-inch have an eye-catching, new wide-screen design, providing additional detailed sonar history versus vertical 4-inch display models.

1 thing very interesting is the coverage for the 200khz; instead of 20deg it's now 40deg.


Few screen shots:


Mapping screen shot; the previous Hook and Elite HDI were known to have a very slow refresh of the screen when moving fast on the water; it's not the case ith the Hook2:


Screen looks like the HDS & the Ti and very easy to use



The Tripleshot transducer is smaller then the Totalscan:

Will these units integrate with the Lowrance Outboard cable driven auto pilot unit?

No, if you want to control the AP on a Lowrance you need a Gen-2, Gen-3 or a Carbon. There is some Gen-3 on sale at a fair price and you can also run the AP with a Simrad in the GO series this model is in the same price range of the Lowrance Ti.
