Just add your choice of transducer. 1kW CHIRP-enabled sonar provides exceptional bottom-tracking and fish-finding performance, including support for dual-channel CHIRP transducers that deliver multiple depth range coverage from a single unit. Dual transducer ports offer the convenience of connecting multiple transducers to a single display. Better-than-ever processing power easily powers Active Imaging™, providing picture-like views of fish-holding structure, and ForwardScan® sonar, which offers the safest on-water experience with crystal clear views of the bottom ahead.
