Fantastic clarity and target separation
Ideal for medium to large-sized trailer boats, the Furuno FCV-588 8.4" Colour LCD Fishfinder
features an enhanced sunlight viewable, polarised-friendly bonded 8.4" LCD display and uses the revolutionary RezBoost technology that increases resolution and improves target separation. This package comes complete with an Airmar TM260 1kW transom mount transducer for the best performance.
RezBoost is a revolutionary new signal processing technology that improves resolution and target separation when using conventional narrowband transducers. Spot individual game fish surrounding bait balls, as well as fish close to the seabed. Not only can you expect higher resolution and crisper visuals, but also improvements in the ACCU-FISH function.
With RezBoost technology, the resolution is increased, leading to sharper and more defined echoes. Thanks to this increase in resolution, the accuracy of the ACCU-FISH function is also improved. ACCU-FISH is very useful when you need to determine fish size, but also has the added benefit of making fish echoes more visible when viewed from a distance. With ACCU-FISH you can spot individual fish echoes even from the deck on your vessel.
Recognise individual or multiple fish instantaneously with ACCU-FISH! In order to assess individual fish size, echo returns are evaluated based on strength and turned into fish size display on screen. ACCU-FISH can detect fish size from 10 to 199 cm, in depths of 2 to 100 m. The fish mark can be utilised to display individual fish echoes when they are detected. It helps you to identify fish echoes for a more engaging fishing experience. Fish marks are selectable from either a circle or square, as well as, two fish symbols. The fish symbols, displayed in two different sizes (Large: over 50 cm, Small: 10 to 49 cm), are a great help for anglers when identifying individual fish. The circle and square symbols identify individual fish without hiding the underlying echo.
Bottom Discrimination Function
FCV628's Bottom Discrimination function enables the fishfinder to indicate whether the bottom is composed mainly of rocks, gravel, sand or mud. It provides you with valuable information that helps you locate rich fishing grounds and boost your catch of the day. The White Line function distinguishes fish from the seabed. This function is useful for discriminating bottom fish as well as judging fish school density.
With the FCV-588’s Fish Alarm function, when fish echoes appear in an area preset by the user, the FCV-588 will sound a loud alarm and display an alarm icon on-screen. The integrated alarm can also be set to be triggered by specific conditions for water depth, target depth, water temperature, bottom type and more. You never have to miss a target again!
The new Airmar TM260 takes the legendary performance of the B260 to your vessel’s transom. This top-of-the-line 1kW transom-mount brings crystal clear imaging to any of today’s fishfinders. The large 200 kHz element and the seven-element 50 kHz array are excellent for bait and game fish separation along with detecting ground fish holding tight to the bottom. The TM260’s high-performance mounting bracket is easy-to-install and has a streamlined shape that delivers high-speed performance up to 30 knots (35 MPH).
