Furuno has introduced two new fish finder units, the FCV588 and FCV628. Both are third-generation designs that incorporate RezBoost, a first for Furuno with a standalone fish finder.

The manufacturer introduced RezBoost last year. It is a signal-processing technology that improves resolution and target separation, creating an image that Furuno says is eight times sharper than what anglers see on units with conventional signal processing.

The FCV588 has an 8.4-inch color LCD screen, while the FCV628 has a 5.6-inch version. Both units are designed to fit in the helm footprint of their predecessor models, the FCV620/FCV627 and the FCV585/FCV587.

Additional tech in the box: Both of the new Furuno fish finders have Bottom Discrimination, Accu-Fish and Post-Processing Gain Control features.
