Fish Reveal Smart Target View

The FishReveal Smart Target View combines the CHIRP Sonar fish arches along with DownScan Imaging provides precise location and imaging, bottom detail, structure and bait fish. It removes the need to display CHIRP sonar and DownScan Imaging in a two-panel split-screen display.

CHIRP SONAR

The high-performance Chirp SONAR provides enhanced and precise target locations. It comes in high Chirp, medium Chirp or low chirp depending on the frequencies and transducer selections.

The high Chirp(200 kHz )mode is ideal for freshwater and provides greater detail for tracking smaller objects.

The medium (83 kHz) Chirp scans a wider area, although it doesn’t provide detail tracking of smaller objects.

The low Chirp (50 kHz) offers the greatest Chirp performance marking the fish targets throughout the water body.

The shallow water mode, fresh water mode are used for depths of 60 feet or less, and depths of about 100 feet respectively.

CHIRP sonar helps you find fish targets from the bottom, structure and other nearby fish, even when they are close to the bottom. The CHIRP sonar utilizes conical beams at 20° for 200 kHz and 60° for 83kHz. This ensures the maximum elimination of excess clutter with better target separation and definition.

TotalScan Transducer

If you don’t like multiple transducer installs and all that comes with it, you are going love the TotalScan transducer. With TotalScan, you not only will drill fewer holes in your boat, but get the capability to target fish and search fish-holding structure from a single transducer install.

Med-High Skimmer and HDI transducer

Med-High Skimmer has powerful fish-targeting capability while the HDI transducer uses Med/High CHIRP and DownScan Imaging to deliver fish-targeting views of traditional sonar and pictures of structures beneath the boat.
