Bottom Discrimination and More
The Bottom Discrimination function (proper transducer required) that provides instant recognition of the actual bottom composition such as rocks, gravel, mud and sand. Knowing what type of bottom you’re fishing over is very important for fisherman targeting certain species of fish that have bottom preferences much like a grouper favor rock bottom or a flounder prefers a sand bottom certain times of the year in deeper water. Furuno FCV-587 also contains Furuno’s unique Accu-Fish ID feature which helps to identify individual fish and identifies the size of that fish. View programmable navigation data displays with analog and/or digital navigation data, when networked via NMEA-0183 to other compatible devices.
The 587 utilizes Furuno’s FDF (Furuno Digital Filter) technology to identify the transducers wattage capacity and adjust its output power to match. The digital filter helps adjust much more than just gain, STC and output power; it also helps reduce an inaccurate depth presentation when a large bait pod is right below the transducer obstructing the pulse. This new technology improves performance in both shallow and deep water applications and can be adjusted automatically or manually.
Post Processing Gain Control
Post Processing Gain Control allows you to adjust the gain not only on the returns from that point forward, but also for the existing returns that are still on the display. This is a quick and easy way to assist in determining what settings are best for the current water conditions. Every boater knows that your fishfinder functions a little differently according to the water’s clarity and that will vary based on recent storms, local currents and the composition of the sea floor. The Furuno FCV 587 Color Sounder is exactly what Furuno has been striving for; A spectacular LCD display, 1000 watts of output power, advanced features and an intuitive user interface packed into a unit that is built with commercial grade precision while keeping the recreational boaters wallet in mind.
