FPB 78-1 Video: Exploring With Simrad Forward Looking Sonar


We have been critical of the Simrad radar and chart plotting systems. But there is good news as well. The AP 70/80 autopilots are excellent, easy to program and very smart. But that was expected. 

Where we have really been pleasantly surprised is with their Forward Looking Sonar. At less than USD $1000 it actually works well in good sonar conditions. It has limited range but gives a good warning tool. So far we have seen targets at ranges up to 200/250 feet.
