CHIRP DIGITAL SONAR. Your fishing arsenal isn’t limited to one or two lures. It’s filled with options. Imagine your Humminbird as a tackle box. You have a wealth of tools at your fingertips, each with its own job. And think of Humminbird CHIRP Digital Sonar as yet another lure, with a specific task: showing you fish that other forms of sonar cannot. It all starts with our proprietary transducer. Traditional transducers put you on hold, wasting valuable time “charging up” before each sonar pulse. Humminbird CHIRP transducers are engineered to minimise charge time, firing off more pulses in a given period of time. More pulses mean more information and improved target separation.

improved fish detail Nothing fishy here. With CHIRP, you can tell the difference between a sport fish, a baitfish and a weed based on the finely detailed arches. Here’s how a school of fish appears with CHIRP next to Down Imaging®.

more target separation No more “blobs.” CHIRP separates your vertical jigging action, individual fish and the bottom into distinct, detailed images. In the screen below, you can see fish rising from the bottom to attack the lure. The fish is then hooked and reeled in, as others descend back into the structure.

increased depth & range Get to the bottom of it. By blasting more energy below the surface, CHIRP can take you deeper than traditional 2D sonar. To reach depths all the way to the ocean floor with the full CHIRP capability of SOLIX and HELIX, opt for an Airmar® CHIRP transducer. Durable, precise and innovative, these industry-leading transducers are available through your Humminbird dealer. For more information, talk to your dealer.
