Navico have announced the introduction of the new Simrad Active Imaging Sonar – advanced new scanning-sonar technology that provides extremely detailed, high-resolution imaging without sacrificing range. Replacing the Simrad TotalScan transducers currently available with GO series displays, Active Imaging aims to redefine what an angler can expect from sonar.
Active Imaging Sonar provides clear views of fish-holding structure and cover with new levels of refined detail at an extended range. It is available in two models: 3-in-1 and standalone. The 3-in-1 combines scanning sonar with a traditional medium/high CHIRP sonar element for easy single-transducer installation, while the standalone transducer is designed to be installed alongside a separate CHIRP sonar transducer.
Leif Ottosson, CEO Navico Group, commented: ‘Our Active Imaging provides high-quality images while still delivering views of up to 300 feet to the left and right of a boat. We designed it as a seamless transition for our GO series of displays, making it simple for our current customers to take advantage of.’
