Choose from CMAP Jeppesen or Navionics+ Chart

By using a Navionics card in your Furuno, you can get a new world of charts and features to experience boating, sailing or fishing like never before. By using Navionics+ cartography, you can get nautical charts with all the essential cartographic data from official and private sources, and additional invaluable crowdsourced local knowledge provided by boaters like you through the Community Edits feature.

Need a hand in plotting the course? Tired of having to input multiple waypoints and waste a lot of time when you could be enjoying the day out? Let Dock-to-dock route guidance1 technology be your second officer and do the hard work for you. Just insert the start and end points and a suggested route will get automatically created. Easy, right?

If fishing is your passion, we can’t promise to make the fish bite, but we can definitely put you in the best spot for that to happen with the SonarChart™ bathymetry layer. The 1’ HD contours help you understand depths and bottom detail to locate the best fishing areas. To make it even more powerful, combine it with fishing ranges, a feature that lets you highlight up to five different ranges with different colors to see at a glance where to cast your line. Do you want to know the bottom condition in real time? Use the SonarChart™ Live mapping and see the new contours appear on your screen while you move on the water, and no fish will be able to hide from you.

Built-In CHIRP and Conventional Fish Finders

The unit includes a built-in TruEcho CHIRP, as well as a conventional Fish Finder, transmitting at 300W, 600W or 1kW. Simply tell the unit what transducer you are using and it will select the type of Fish Finder to use. The TruEcho CHIRP transmits across a spectrum of frequencies, delivering an incredible amount of detail and clearly marking individual game fish and bait fish. The conventional Fish Finder includes RezBoost data processing for an ultra-crisp, high-resolution picture.




Unique to Furuno, the ACCU-Fish feature is a revolutionary fish size assessment function that can tell you the approximate size of the fish below your boat.  ACCU-Fish recognizes individual or multiple fish instantaneously. It displays fish symbols on your FURUNO screen with their length in cm. Or optionally their depth.

ACCU-FISH signal processing blends the high and low frequencies to depict fish targets of all types simply, clearly and distinctly. Now, fishermen can clearly and easily distinguish big billfish around a bait ball, or see through bait fish on the surface to target "the big one" below. Very often the snapper will be in schools of a certain size, using ACCU-FISH you can determine the size of the fish you target, rather than wasting time and bait, and potentially damaging a lot of small fish. ACCU-Fish is available when using the RezBoost Fishfinder and compatible transducer.

**Note - When using a CHIRP transducer you will not be able to access the ACCU-FISH function**


 Bottom Discrimination 

Provides detailed information about knowing the make-up of the seabed, categorizing it into four different categories; “Rocks”, “Gravel”, “Sand” and “Mud”. The make-up of the seabed can be tremendously helpful information when looking for ­fishing grounds, as well as for ­finding good anchoring spots.

The Bottom Discrimination (BDS) feature is unique to Furuno and perfect for those fishos who want to know the bottom composition they are looking at. Locating the exact spot where bottom composition changes will often identify the perfect habitat for fish like snapper and hapuka.

Bottom Discrimination is available when using the RezBoost Fishfinder and a compatible transducer.

**Note - When using a CHIRP transducer you will not be able to access the Bottom Discrimination function**
