The tri-dimensional view of the sea bottom gets straight tothe dashboard with the new StructureScan 3D sonar by Simrad.
Simrad enhances the features of their displays with a very interesting product: not just for leisure boaters, but also for gamers who will have the chance to see the shape of the fish and the size of a shoal. Only condition, you need to have on board the navigation Simrad NSS and NSO evo2.
How it works
StructureScan 3D by Simrad quickly scans the sea floor and generates ample 180-degree visualizations, in 3D and hi-res, up to 90 meters deep and 180 meters wide to port and starboard. The level of detail allows to understand the tiny variations and the areas where fish stay.
But there’s another feature in the new StructureScan 3D sonar: multiple ways of visualization include enhanced DownScan Imaging, detailed StructureScan, and the new and innovative 3D visualizations.
By using virtual point-of-views or the ScanTrack pan-tilt-rotate control, users can combine HD and £D visions for a better awareness in every situaton.
Other exclusive features of this Simrad include:
• Leading Edge: scanning reference gives a clear graphical illustration of the sonar beams as they intersect with the bottom contours, for a better sense of target depth
• SelectScan: makes target identification quicker and easier than before, by coloring fish-holding cover and suspended targets in a contrasting color
• Vertical Depth Enhancement: gives emphasis to vertical drops and crucial depth changes making them easier to identify
• 3D Waypoint Overlay: allows to save a waypoint over specific targets, baitfish schools or cover
Another important feature is the price of StructureScan 3D: the indicative request for the module kit and the Skimmer transductor is 999 Euros, in all authorized Simrad dealers across Europe, Middle East and Africa. The bad news, for the boater who wanted to enjoy the summer with this new device, is that it won’t be available before December 2015. So, for the season it’s only possible to plan a 3D navigation.
