Raymarine, Lowrance, Simrad, and Furuno chartplotters each include the features you want to use as you fish, but they are often referred to by unique names within each brand. To help you navigate and compare these brands we have provided the cheat sheet below so you can be sure your comparison research is complete.
Chirp Sonar: CHIRP (Compressed High-Intensity Radiated Pulse) sonar sweeps a range of frequencies continuously to provide the best target acquisition and separation. This enables the user to see fish more clearly, and distinguish individual bait fish from a school.
Downward Scanning Sonar: High-frequency scanning sonar displays a picture-like image of the bottom structure under the boat.
Side Scanning Sonar: High-frequency scanning sonar displays a picture-like image off to port and starboard of the boat.
3D Sonar: 3D Sonar Imaging allows the user to see fish and the bottom from multiple angles in an easy to read format.
