Raymarine’s Element Series of combination sonar and GPS displays is promising lifelike sonar imaging for coastal boaters and anglers.
Each display includes Raymarine RealVision 3D and the manufacturer’s new HyperVision sonar technology. RealVision 3D provides bottom imagery and more precise location of fish targets, while HyperVision enhances the DownVision, SideVision and RealVision 3D sonar, allowing anglers to see structure, vegetation and fish with lifelike detail.
The displays run on a new LightHouse Sport operating system and incorporate Raymarine’s RealBathy real-time sonar map generator capability.
“With the new Raymarine Element series, we are making our most advanced sonar technology and intuitive user experience available to a larger audience of recreational boaters,” Jim Cannon, president and CEO at FLIR Systems, stated in a press release.
How big are the displays? The Element series comes in 7-, 9-, and 12-inch models. Look for them to be available in early 2019.
