    The BBDS1 is a new network fish finder for NavNet 3D and NavNet TZtouch that features an all new bottom discrimination function, as well as the FDF (Furuno Digital Filter) capability of the DFF1. The BBDS1 determines the bottom structure and separates them into the following categories: mud, sand, gravel and rock. This is achieved by analyzing echo characteristics from the bottom components such as particle size and hardness.


    • Connect the BBDS1 to your NavNet 3D or NavNet TZtouch network and get ready for your NavNet system to provide you with valuable information to locate rich fishing grounds, boosting your catch
    • Two bottom discrimination display modes to select from
      • Standard Mode: the most probable materials on the bottom (mud, sand, gravel or rock) indicated in either graphic mode or a 4-color bar on the bottom of the display
      • Probability Mode: shows you what material the bottom has the greatest chance of consisting of by displaying the possible bottom materials proportionally within the 4-color bar
