    • This forward-looking sonar provides a clear, two-dimensional image of the bottom in front of your vessel
      • Allows you to navigate shallow or poorly-charted waters with confidence
      • ForwardScan provides forward-looking, two-dimensional sonar imaging of the bottom ahead of your boat
      • In shallow, unfamiliar, or poorly-charted waters, ForwardScan is a powerful defense against running around, and an invaluable tool for locating secure sites to drop anchor
    • With real-time updates and a forward-looking view of up to eight times your current depth, ForwardScan lets you relax and enjoy a safer day on the water
    • ForwardScan's forward range scale is automatically synchronized with the length of the heading line:
      • In split-screen ForwardScan/Navigation view, the full distance from your vessel to the end of the heading line is represented in 2D on the ForwardScan display
      • Quickly reconcile ForwardScan data with charted depth and your present course, for a comprehensive understanding of what's ahead
    • The ForwardScan Long Stem Transducer is compatible with Simrad NSS evo2, NSO evo2, and GO XSE displays
    • Long-stem design for use with thick or steeply-inclined hulls
    • Easy to use Forward-looking 2D sonar imaging
    • Bottom Color Tracking for a simplified bottom view
    • Heading Line View combines ForwardScan depth data into heading line on charts
    • Operates at 180 kHz, reducing interference from traditional 200 kHz echosounders
    • Includes a Shallow depth alarm
    • Maximum forward view of 8X current depth, nominally 4-5X current depth
      • Maximum forward view of 8X your current depth (e.g. at 3 meters (10 feet) depth, see up to 24 meters (80 feet) ahead)
      • Nominal forward view of 4-5X your current depth (e.g. At 3 meters (10 feet) depth, see 12-15 meters (40-50 feet) ahead)
    • Bottom Color Tracking Bottom Color Tracking offers a solid 2D rendering of the bottom ahead of your vessel for an uncluttered, immediately understandable view
    • Make fast and well-informed navigational decisions, without needing to interpret the individual data points returned by the echosounder.
    • Easy Installation
      • ForwardScan connects quickly and easily to any Simrad NSS evo2 multifunction display via the StructureScan port, with no additional hardware necessary
      • The ForwardScan Long Stem Transducer features an extended stainless steel through-hull mount and specially designed fairing block to accommodate hulls up to 47.6 mm (1 7/8 inch) in thickness and up to 28 degrees dead rise
      • On NSO evo2 modular systems, or NSS evo2 systems already using StructureScan, ForwardScan may be connected via an optional Simrad SonarHub sounder module
