Traditional CW (Continuous Wave) Fish Finders transmit a signal composed of a single frequency, while CHIRP Fish Finders transmit a linear frequencymodulated signal - a wave with a frequency that increases over time. The FCV-600 and FCV-800 can utilize a broadband transducer to transmit across a spectrum of frequencies, resulting in better target resolution. With Furuno’s TruEcho CHIRP™, you’ll see greater detail and target separation for baitfish, game fish, and structure.
COMBINE CW & TruEcho CHIRP™ FOR ADDED CAPABILITIES
By combining CHIRP and traditional CW transducers*, you’ll see crisp CHIRP echoes on the screen while the ACCU-FISH™ and Bottom Discrimination functions from your CW transducer work in the background, overlaying important information on your CHIRP returns. You will be able to see fish targets, fish size assessment, fish depth, and bottom composition.** Up to three frequencies can be saved as preset selections.
*FCV-800 Single Frequency CHIRP only
**MF or HF CHIRP
With Color Range Expansion, the range of identifiable echoes is expanded so you can intuitively identify bottom fish from the seabed. Reefs, structure, and fish near the seabed are shown in slightly separated colors, making it easy to tell structure from fish at a glance.
A second display can be installed to show the echoes and nav data from the FCV-600 and FCV-800 via wireless network, so you can monitor the underwater situation from the stern or bow while fishing.
Sunlight and Yellow color schemes offer enhanced visibility under bright sunlight conditions.
