THE WORLD'S BEST FISH FINDER JUST GOT BETTER
UP TO 8 TIMES SHARPER IMAGE THAN A CONVENTIONAL FURUNO DIGITAL FILTER
RezBoost™ is a game-changing, revolutionary technology that uses FURUNO’s exclusive digital signal processing protocol to produce fish targets and images that are up to 8 times sharper than a conventional Fish Finder. You get incredible resolution. And because it’s in-built, there’s no need to change out your narrowband transducer*1 or purchase an expensive broadband transducer. With RezBoost™, you get:• Better target separation
• Better predator identification
• The ability to accurately spot individual fish and increase your catch
THERE'S NO NEED TO CHANGE YOUR TRANSDUCER
Every NavNet TZtouch2 display has a built-in Fish Finder that is dual-frequency (50/200kHz) and that has an impressive 600W/1kW power output. Remember, you don’t need to buy an expensive broadband transducer because RezBoost™ will work on your narrowband transducer.
“Instead of trying to interpret a blob on the screen, with RezBoost on my FURUNO I can see individual marks. Separating the bait from the predators means I know when there’s a decent fish down there!”
– Matt Watson, The ITM Fishing Show
*RezBoost™ performance may vary depending on depth, range and signal frequency used.
*1 To check if your transducer supports the "Enhanced Mode" see the list below on this page. In-hull mounted transducers are not compatible with RezBoost™ technology.
DETECT THE SIZE OF FISH UNDER YOUR BOAT WITH ACCU-FISH™
Unique to FURUNO, ACCU-Fish™ is a revolutionary fish size assessment function that can tell you the approximate size of the fish beneath your boat. ACCU-Fish™:
• Recognises individual or multiple fish instantaneously
• Displays fish symbols on your FURUNO screen
• Shows their length in cm
• Or it can show their depth
To assess individual fish size, the echo strength from the fish is computed and displayed as fish size on your screen. ACCU-Fish™ can detect fish size between 10 and 199cm in a depth of between2 and 100m.
TARGET BILLFISH MORE EASILY
ACCU-Fish™ signal processing blends the high and low frequencies to show you fish targets of all types, simply, clearly and distinctly. Now, you can easily distinguish big billfish around a bait ball. You can even ‘see through’ bait fish on the surface to target ‘the big one’ below.
DETERMINE SNAPPER SIZE
We know that snapper will often be in a school of a certain size. With ACCU-Fish™, you can determine the size of the fish you’re targeting so you don’t waste time and bait or potentially damage a lot of small fish.
ACCU-Fish™ is available on:
FCV627/628, FCV587/588, FCV295, FCV1150, TZTouch2 Range, DFF1, DFF1-UHD, DFF3, BBDS1
BOTTOM DISCRIMINATION (BDS)
SEE WHAT'S ON THE SEAFLOOR
We know knowledge of the seabed can be extremely helpful when you’re looking for fishing grounds. It’s also very useful when you’re looking for good spots in which to anchor. The good news is, Bottom Discrimination gives you detailed and valuable information on the make-up of the seafloor. It identifies the seafloor as one of four categories:
KNOW WHEN THE SEAFLOOR CHANGES
The Bottom Discrimination (BDS) is unique to FURUNO. You’ll find it’s an ideal tool when you want to know what the bottom composition is. Locating the exact spot where bottom composition changes will often help you to identify the perfect habitat for fish like snapper or hapuka.
With the DFF1 or BBDS1, NavNet can show you the Bottom Discrimination information from the depth sounder echogram. The four categories (rock, gravel, sand or mud) are displayed in easy-to-read colour graphics. There are two Bottom Discrimination display modes for you to choose from:
The standard graphic display shows you the most probable bottom composition by graphics in four colours.
The probability display mode shows you the most probably bottom composition in graph form.
HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR BOTTOM DISCRIMINATOR SOUNDER
1) Use at a depth of 5m - 200m (DFF1-UHD), 5m - 100m (BBDS1)
2) Use transducer in transom mount or thru-hull mount
3) To show a consistent display of the actual bottom, set the range display of the Fish Finder screen to ‘auto’.
4) Enter the ship’s draft value
5) Use a ship speed of 10 knots or less
NOTE: In some instances, the bottom composition indicated on the display may differ from the actual bottom structure.

Target with BLUEBEAM TECHNOLOGY
For decades, FURUNO has been a dominant force in New Zealand’s commercial fishing industry and a major player on the country’s recreational fishing scene. For more than 70 years, FURUNO has led the market with world-beating innovation and tried and proven performance and reliability. While you’ll find leading-edge technology right across the FURUNO range, at its core is the signal processing and sensor technology that is quite simply the best on the planet.
