Furuno FCV585 Digital Compact Color Fishfinder, 8.4 Inch LCD
The Furuno FCV585 Fishfinder is a dual frequency (50 kHz and 200 kHz) Digital Compact Color LCD Sounder featuring Furuno's DSP technology. The compact digital FCV585 system displays underwater conditions in 8, 16 or 64 colors on a super-bright 8.4" LCD screen.
You've probably heard about digital fishfinders, but aren't quite sure what the difference is! The main difference is the filtering capabilities and auto adjustments. Our new DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology employed in compact FSV585 units helps adjust gain, STC Clutter and output power, as well as suppress main bang (the echoes just below the transducer.) It also makes the picture clearer and easier to decipher. But even the best digital filter wont help unless you start with a solid basis, such as Furunos renowned fishfinder technology.
The digital FCV585's waterproof and compact construction allows it to be installed on any bridge. Audio and visual alarms alert you whenever preset limits are met for water depth, water temperature and fish echoes. Selectable display modes include High or Low Frequency, Dual Frequency, Zoom, Nav Data, A-Scope, Marker Zoom, Bottom Zoom or Bottom-Lock. Furuno's TLL (Target Lat/Lon) output allows you to interface the color FCV585 with your Furuno chartplotter so you can mark any spot you desire and save it as a waypoint, enabling you to return to it whenever you desire.
