Furuno's latest digital fish-finding units feature multi-frequency selection control, which allows you to dial in a custom transducer frequency. For instance, if you're operating at 50 kHz but see interference on the screen, you can "slew" the frequency to 40 kHz to clear up the targets. These units also feature white edge, which displays the top of the seabed in white to distinguish between fish and structure. Furuno's digital filter enhances what you see because it removes noise, suppresses main bang (surface clutter) and optimizes gain. You can also select 1, 2 or 3 kW power and any two frequencies between 28 and 200 kHz. The FCV1150 features a 12.1-inch SVGA display, and the FCV295 offers a 10.4-inch VGA display; both are color LCDs. The 1150 also pairs with a satellite compass through its NMEA 0183 port to provide heaving compensation, which steadies the display in rough seas. The FCV295 costs $2,995; the FCV1150 costs $4,595.
