Humminbird CHIRP Sonar
CHIRP stands for "Compressed High Energy Radar Pulse." Unlike traditional 2D sonar that utilizes one, two or three frequencies, CHIRP covers a wide range of frequencies to provide a much more detailed view of what's below. Humminbird's latest sonar advancement — Dual Spectrum CHIRP —provides full spectrum capability plus the ability to choose your own start and end frequencies. A proprietary, best-in-class transducer maximizes fish detail and the coverage area.
Over the years, Humminbird has set itself apart with remarkable breakthroughs in imaging technology. These game-changing advancements include:
- MEGA Imaging+: This high-frequency beam scans across the megahertz range to provide incredible, picture-like detail, with an expanded depth range and side coverage areas.
- Side Imaging (SI): An ultra-thin beam instantly scans the areas on the sides of your boat location, giving you a complete picture of what's beneath.
- Down Imaging (DI): Down Imaging is produced by high-frequency sonar beams transmitting in ultra-thin slices through the water column. The result is a portrait-like snapshot of what's beneath the boat — fish, timber, brush, rocks and more.
- 360 Imaging: This technology sends out a 150-foot sonar signal on each side of your boat, creating a 360-view to keep you one step ahead of the action.
Many Humminbird fish finder devices include mapping features to help you get to productive locations more quickly. Learn more about Humminbird's mapping technology.
- Basemap: Utilizing data from LakeMaster and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Basemap provides clear, detailed views of underwater terrain, along with contours, depth markings and spot soundings for coastal areas. You can also mark key navigation aids and points of interest with Humminbird's comprehensive icon system.
- AutoChart Live: Available on the SOLIX Series and all GPS-equipped HELIX Series models, AutoChart allows you to create detailed maps of your location in real time. AutoChart will map your route as you drive the boat, with up to eight hours of recording time. Once your map is live, you can see vegetation, bottom hardness and depth contours to identify the most promising fishing spots.
- Humminbird LakeMaster: The LakeMaster library includes more than 10,000 lakes located throughout North America. Enjoy easy-to-read contours, highlighted depth ranges and more.
- SmartStrike: SmartStrikes saves you time by taking you right to the action. When you enter information like time of year, time of day, temperature and target species, SmartStrike will identify areas where fish are most likely to bite.
