Humminbird has developed different series of fish finders, from the entry level series to professional series. Sonar Humminbird fish finders use Down Imaging technology. This technology uses high frequency waves in such thin slices from the boat to the bottom that the images of the underwater come to you in remarkable clarity.
So on the photo-like images you can get a clear view of what is going on underneath the boat, so you get better chances of targeting fish. On most of these fish finders you will also find dual beam sonar with two frequencies. Some of the models like the c offer frequency as high as kHz. The lowest second frequency is on models Humminbird and c, which stands at 82 kHz. This allows the user to simultaneously view both sonar returns. Comparing the two sonars, the angler can get better understanding of what is going on underneath his boat.
On the split screen you can zoom in to get greater detail. The c fish finder is perfect for fishing in the very deep salt waters. There are not many fish finders on the market that offer feet depth capability. Moreover, the Down Imaging also offers vertical depth capability of feet. So if you are a professional angler, this is the unit for you.
On the other hand, if you need a fish finder for shallow waters, then either Humminbird Fishin Buddy with feet depth capability or PiranhaMAX c with feet depth capability should be your choice. On some models like the ci you also get the SwitchFire feature that allows you to adjust how the sonar is displayed according to your fishing conditions.
You can add or remove detail. In the clear mode you can filter out noise in agitated and shallow waters, reduce undesired clutter. In the max mode you can do the opposite to see more detail, such as structure, thermoclines, cover, fish, and even water currents. Chartplotting Humminbird c, ci and ci include a GPS chartplotter integrated into the fish finder. It comes preloaded with maps and using the built-in card slot you can also upload more advanced cartography as well as save waypoints.
The GPS gives laser-targeted tracking results Display Choosing one of the Hummingbird fish finders, you have model options with color or black and white screen. The pricier models of course are available with high resolution color screens. Viewing the underwater sonar returns on a color screen gives you better visibility of all the details and allows better tracking of the fish. The images are of photo-like quality. Also, one more benefit of the color screen is that most of them offer split screen viewing with two sonar return readings opened simultaneously.
