Humminbird PiranhamaX 197C

The Humminbird PiranhamaX echosounder is capable of sending ultrasound from 200 kHz to 455 kH at angles of 28 ° or 16 °. Although the device provides a perspective view of everything under the boat, it is less effective at detecting fish. The system of this fishfinder is equipped with “Down Imaging” and can scan an area of ​​75 ° angle with 455 kHz. However, it is possible that this frequency associated with this angle does not provide great precision to the fisherman.

Otherwise, this device does not have GPS, which could be detrimental to the lack of precision that can provide its probe. Even with a screen of 480 pixels on 272 pixels of definition, the accuracy of the probe is not optimized to 100% and declines after 30 m. This model is equipped with a rechargeable 180 mA battery. But it remains compatible with batteries of 4 ah or 7 ah.

The Humminbird PiranhamaX 197C is deal for all types of small boats as well as kayaks, etc …

So ! take advantage of this new easy-to-handle system scan probe.
