Active Imaging technology enhances the GO series displays from Simrad

The GO series displays from Simrad are an excellent boating companion, suiting a wide range of vessels. The series includes the GO7 XSR, GO9 XSE, and GO12 XSE and every intuitive multi-touch display is a full-featured chartplotter, with a built-in GPS receiver. Each display also holds an echosounder, has wireless connectivity and industry standard NMEA 2000 networking.

The displays assist in navigation and can be connected with mobile devices and control accessories like your on-board sound system.  Built in sonar options are available, that make cruising a breeze and finding fish a synch.

Recently the GO series was matched with the brand-new Active Imaging sonar technology. The exceptional level of detail offered by the new technology is unmatched by any other structure imaging technology with Active Imaging sonar on the market.

Active Imaging allows you to see structure and cover like never before. Finding fish is a breeze, with the high-level clarity, target separation and detail that Active Imaging offer.  You can identify fish-holding structures like rockpiles, standing timber, weedbeds, ditches and drop-offs. The FishReveal Smart Target view allows you to recognise fish easily, with the CHIRP sonar and DownScan. Active Imaging is available in 3-in-1 (CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan) and 2-in-1 (SideScan and DownScan) transducers.

The GO series displays from Simrad can also be matched with a TotalScan transducer. The TotalScan transducer turns your display into a mighty fishfinder and includes all the benefits of a HDI Skimmer transducer, including CHIRP and FishReveal technology, and full StructureScan HD imaging. The technology will see you spending your energy and time in more fruitful places.

Adding a HDI Skimmer transducer alone, will make fish finding and tracking depth a simple task. Like the TotalScan transducer, the HDI Skimmer transducer is transom-mounted. The HDI Skimmer is an excellent choice for amateur anglers, allowing you to monitor depth and easily spot where the fish are at.

The GO series displays from Simrad, matched with Active Imaging technology, allows you to make the most of every second on the water. Make the display your own, with a number of options to customise and enjoy your sea time with family and friends, as you expertly navigate the waters and locate the best fishing spots.
