The RVM1600 for Axiom chartplotters takes multi-channel fish finder performance to new depths. The next generation of CHIRP DownVision, SideVision, 3D, and traditional CHIRP sonar, RealVision MAX fish finder technology delivers more power and life-like fish finder imagery so you can fish at the top of your game.
RealVision MAX starts with high-performance CHIRP transducers, upgraded with larger elements and increased power output for extended fish finder range performance.
Next, RealVision MAX CHIRP signal processing and faster ping rates improve fish finder imagery and target identification.
With RealVision MAX, structure is more recognizable, and the most elusive fish are easily identifiable with high-contrast RealVision MAX sonar color palettes.
High-contrast color fish finder palettes are refined to accentuate targets and make fish stand out from the water column.
RealVision MAX transducers are upgraded with a more powerful 600-watt High CHIRP frequency. The result is deeper range performance and stronger fish finder target returns. Track the bottom in depths greater than 1,200' (366 meters) and find fish beyond 400' (123 meters).
CHIRP DownVision® delivers a photo-like fish finder view of the world beneath your boat. See bottom structures and fish targets with amazing detail.
CHIRP SideVision® sonar expands your underwater horizon with full port and starboard coverage of fish, bait, and underwater structure. See further and see more fish than traditional side scanning sonars.
RealVision MAX 3D fish finder lets anglers see below, behind, and to the sides of the boat. Get a new perspective of the underwater world that simplifies locating and staying on structure
RealVision MAX transom mount and through hull transducer provide DownVision™, SideVision™, 600-Watt High CHIRP, and 3D sonar capability to the RVM1600. RealVision MAX transducers feature a built-in attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) for stabilizing 3D sonar imagery and automatically compensating for vessel motion. A fast-response built-in water temperature sensor provides quick and accurate sea temperature readings.
