180m depth fishing hunter
This amazing 180m depth fishing hunter product is especially designed for amateur and professional fishermen alike, to find out the location of fish, depth and bottom environments of water. The unit can be used in ocean,
river or lake and is fantastic for detecting schools of fish in any particular area.
Fishes and bottom environments readout: fish finder portable detects and displays water depth, approximate fish location, short & tall weeds, sand & rocks on bottom.
Variety fishes fishing environments: It can be used for off shore fishing, kayak fishing, ice fishing, lake fishing, sea fishing and so on. You can also use handheld fish finder on the moving kayak with speed below 5mph.
Function display review
The other 180m depth fishing hunter big plus of the Axiom is that it’s a standalone unit. There’s no additional “black boxes” required to run the High CHIRP sonar, DownVision, SideVision or RealVision 3D – it’s all preloaded. This is a major benefit for owners of small boats with limited space to mount additional modules; it also makes install simple and cost effective.
Another major breakthrough Raymarine has achieved with Axiom is with the RV100 transom-mount transducer. With my previous unit, I had a CPT100 transducer for traditional sonar and DownVision plus a separate – and pretty bulky – CPT200 transducer for SideVision, which also required a separate black box.
The RV100 combines High CHIRP sonar, DownVision, SideVision AND RealVision into the one modestly sized package. Plus it’s got a built-in attitude and heading reference system (known as AHRS) that acts as a stabiliser compensating for vessel motion even in rough conditions.
This all-in-one transducer (a thru-hull version is also available) is pretty amazing technology, and delivers clear and detailed images to the Axiom’s optically bonded 12.1” screen.
As far as I’m aware, the Axiom is the only system which doesn’t suppress returns from the transducer side lobes. This enables it to provide ultra-clear bottom discrimination, which helps you more effectively assess different fish-holding habitats.
Axiom’s operating system – which is best described as being similar to that found on a smart phone – easily allows you to customise screens and displays via various apps. Up to four apps can be used on a single screen, thus allowing you to set up pretty much ever you want. I have the chart, Sonar, DownVision, SideVision and RealVision 3D all set up as individual pages with other pages customised to include a mix of apps.
When you run Sonar, DownVision, SideVision and RealVision 3D as four individual apps on the one page all at once – and realise that all this info is 180m depth fishing hunter coming from a single transducer – you begin to appreciate how remarkable the RV100 actually is.
Watching these four high definition CHIRP sonar and imaging apps working concurrently in real time provides another insight into the speed and power of Axiom’s quad core processor.
RealVision 3D is Axiom’s flagship program, offering a unique representation of bottom structure by combining sonar, down, side and 3D imaging data so you can see what’s behind, below and to the sides of your boat. RealVison 3D extends out and down to about 90m, and you can pan, tilt and zoom to examine features in more detail.
I have to say that RealVision 3D is great fun to use – you have to make a conscious effort to stop fiddling with it and actually fish!
As well as sonar and imaging apps, and the usual navigation and cartography features, Axiom is easily expandable, allowing users to add “plug and play” options such as Raymarine’s Quantum radar, FLIR night vision cameras, entertainment, instruments and Evolution autopilot. It also links in with your engine ECM, allowing data like fuel use, temperature, RPM to be displayed on a Dashboard screen.
I don’t have room for radar on my centre console Bar Crusher, although if I still had a hard top boat I’d definitely look at it. Autopilot would be good, but isn’t essential for the sort of fishing I do these days. One addition I might look at down the track is adding a CP470 CHIRP sonar module and 1kW transducer for better deep water sounding performance.
