Frequently Asked Questions
- How does Forward Scan sonar work?
Forward scanning sonars use sound waves to emit high frequency sound pulses that bounce off any objects in their path and return to the sonar, creating a picture of the underwater environment in front of a boat.
This can be particularly useful for anglers fishing in murky waters, as it can provide a clearer picture underwater even when visibility is limited, giving you a distinct advantage in your fishing.
- What is the range of forward looking sonar?
The range can vary depending on the specific model and type of sonar being used, as well as factors such as water conditions and the size and shape of the object being detected.
For sonars such as the Garmin Panoptix, the range can reach up to 100 ft, while other sonars such as the Humminbird MEGA Live Imaging has a range of 150 ft.
