|Simrad ForwardScan Technology
ForwardScan provides forward-looking, two-dimensional sonar imaging of the bottom ahead of your boat. In shallow, unfamiliar, or poorly-charted waters, ForwardScan is a powerful defence against running around, and an invaluable tool for locating secure sites to drop anchor.
The ForwardScan transducer operates at 180kHz to reduce interference from traditional 200kHz echosounders, and provides:
Maximum forward view of 8X your current depth
Nominal forward view of 4-5X your current depth
Simrad NSS evo2/NSO evo2 MFD Integration
Bottom Colour Tracking
|Heading Line View
Heading Line View integrates ForwardScan depth data with the heading line displayed on the navigation page of your Simrad MFD. The line is colour-coded in segments to represent deep, medium, and shallow water, with customisable depth ranges to suit your boat’s draught.
ForwardScan’s forward range scale is automatically synchronised with the length of the heading line: in split-screen ForwardScan/Navigation view, the full distance from your vessel to the end of the heading line is represented in 2D on the ForwardScan display. Quickly reconcile ForwardScan data with charted depth and your present course, for a comprehensive understanding of what’s ahead.
An optional pre-install kit includes sleeve and blanking plug only, allowing boat-builders to provide ForwardScan as an upgrade option. A ForwardScan transducer can then be added by the dealer or customer, even once the boat has been splashed.
