Ultrafast Scanning Speed
This Searchlight Sonar is one of the most comprehensive and fastest of its kind. It provides 6 scanning step variations (6,12,15,18,21,24) easily optimized between high precision modes or a high scanning speed, which can cover 360° in a couple of seconds, depending on the distance of the echoes. Due to its fast scanning speed, it can be used at high speeds while covering a very large area. The Sonar provides the fastest and clearest echo for the ultimate fishing and navigation experience.
While moving fast, use the 24° step scan in order to get a glimpse of your surroundings. If you see something interesting, slow the vessel and switch to the 6° step scanning to produce a clear, high definition echo.
Audible target detection plus a variety of display modes
A powerful signal and image treatment based on a unique interpolation technology provides high-definition images. Even if the fish are located near the seabed, the different echoes are clearly shown and easy to understand. The CH500 delivers a crisp, clear image, reducing strain upon the eyes.
A wide variety of display modes are available, including Horizontal Scan, Vertical Scan, Full-Circle A-Scope, and a traditional Echo Sounder display. A selection of dual-display modes expand upon the Sonar's versatility, including Horizontal + Vertical, Half-Horizontal + Vertical, Horizontal + Full Circle A-Scope, Horizontal + A-Scope, Horizontal + History, and Echo Sounder + A-Scope. The Sonar also features fish and obstacle audio signal notification, depending on the nature and the size of the detected object. Whether there are air bubbles or fish, large or small fish schools, or depending on the texture of the seabed, the emitted sound is different. It is now easy to differentiate fish schools from the seabed they are moving next to, allowing for better comprehension of the surrounding environment for more productive fishing. The usefulness of this feature cannot be understated during long sea trips, as it frees the user from continuously watching the screen. An optional Loudspeaker required for the Audio function.
