BOATING PA: Simrad’s StructureScan® 3D

Underwater Views in 3D!

The new StructureScan® 3D offers fishermen and boaters a view of the ocean floor, its structures and fish suspended in the water in a stunning three-dimensional display on their NSS and NSO evo2 navigational systems.

StructureScan 3D imaging quickly scans underwater terrain to create high-resolution, 180-degree super-wide, three-dimensional views under your boat in depths to 300 feet, and as far as 600 feet, port and starboard. Anglers can now have a better understanding of where fish, bottom contours and structure are located in relation to their boat.

The true-to-life 3D scans are viewed on the Simrad NSS and NSO evo2 display, when used in combination with the SideScan 3D Skimmer® transducer and StructureScan 3D module – making the NSS and NSO evo2 the ultimate fishfinder.

StructureScan 3D sonar provides multiple viewing options including boosted DownScan Imaging™, even more detailed StructureScan HD and the new revolutionary three-dimensional views. Using virtual point-of-view angles or ScanTrack™ pan-tilt-rotate control, anglers can combine custom HD and 3D views to increase situational awareness and search fishing areas as never before.

In addition to outstanding crystal-clear imaging, StructureScan 3D has exclusive features that make finding fish even easier including: •    Leading Edge™ scanning reference provides a clear graphical illustration of the sonar beams as they intersect with the bottom contours and gives the angler a better sense of target depth. •    SelectScan™ water column target colouring automatically shades fish-holding cover and suspended targets in a colour that contrasts the selected colour palette, making target identification quicker and easier than ever before. •    Vertical Depth Enhancement provides emphasis to vertical drops and crucial depth contour changes making them easier to identify relative to the surrounding underwater terrain. •    3D Waypoint Overlay makes it easy to revisit fishing areas, structure and other underwater sweet spots. Use the waypoint keypad to save a waypoint at the boat location or switch to cursor mode and save a waypoint over specific targets, baitfish schools or cover.

Available since late December 2015, the Simrad StructureScan 3D can be purchased from authorised Simrad dealers and distributors throughout Australia and will have an RRP of $1429 for the module and Skimmer transducer kit.
