Lowrance has posted details on their new Endura handheld series. Each model has a 2.7″ touch-screen and a micro-SD slot for maps. All three are scheduled to be available in May, not April as we reported this morning.
- Endura Sierra – This top of the line model (pictured at right) comes with a barometric altimeter, tri-axial compass, 4 GB of internal memory and preloaded “AccuterraTM high-resolution topographic maps, extensive outdoor trail networks and Points of Interest, as well as the NAVTEQ® road network for the contiguous 48 states with an upgrade option for full-featured turn-by-turn navigation.” (MSRP $549)
- Endura Safari – This unit drops the internal memory, tri-axial compass (in favor of a two-axis electronic compass) and the Accuterra maps; instead of the latter it has a basemap with “detailed hill shading, topographic contours, primary and secondary roads and key Points of Interest (POI).” (MSRP $384.99)
- Endura Outback – This entry level unit drops the barometric altimeter and electronic compass. (MSRP $229)
Here’s the full news release for the Sierra.
