Simrad is often first with new sonar features. We now provide you with user selectable beamwidth.
This feature provides improved range and better resolution in the horizontal picture.
When you search for fish at long distances you will set the beamwidth to "narrow" for maximum detection range. When you approach the fish you will use shorter range. The sonar can then be set to change beamwidth to "normal" or "wide" automatically, or you can select the appropriate setting manually. The beamwidth is frequency dependant.
