Man Using Fishfinder On A Boat

GPS STRUCTURESCAN EXPLAINED

The GPS StructureScan shows a graphic representation underneath your boat. Its invention has brought a new more exciting trends to the fishing world. By using a fishfinder with GPS StructureScan, you can almost see everything under the water while helping you locate your target species.

TYPES OF GPS STRUCTURESCAN CONFIGURATIONS

The GPS StructureScan works with a standalone fishfinder on a small boat to fish in small inland lakes. If you want to navigate your fishing grounds while viewing the fishfinder, a combination fishfinder chartplotter type is ideal for you. You can also pair two fishfinders together. A fishfinder with GPS StructureScan works great even for a mid-sized boat. When using a networked system, even more amazing capabilities are available, such as letting you control it from your smartphone. A networked system allows the use of a number of displays powered by one main device.

DISPLAY AND SCREEN FOR GPS STRUCTURESCAN

GPS StructureScan works best a widescreen, so you can split the screen while displaying more data such as the radar screen, GPS chart and more.

THE RIGHT POWER FOR YOUR GPS STRUCTURESCAN

Choosing the right level of power depends on your fishing needs. The amount of power you have allows to you see in the water and the depth of your view. If you’re fishing heavily on blue water, 1,000 watts or more is required. For general fishing operations, the single power box that comes with your fishfinder will do the job.

HOW DOES GPS STRUCTURE SCAN OPERATE?

GPS Structure Scan operates through a single frequency transducer, dual frequencies, multiple frequencies or a broadband CHIRP system.

The Compressed High-Intensity Radar Pulse (CHIRP) is the latest technique used in fishfinders that transmits high and low frequencies. Lower frequency gives greater penetration and requires less power, so it can help you locate the fish while generating less noise. On the other hand, higher frequency gives accurate detail on shallow depths. This is how you get the great visual representation of what is under the water.

So, if you are in the market for a new fishfinder and you want a device that delivers a great representation of what is below you as well as providing chart plotting capabilities, look for GPS StructureScan in your next device. I would not go out kayaking fishing without it. Having this setup on my kayak might be a little OTT but has made fishing so much fun.
