Humminbird 409380-1 398ci Fish Finder Review: Featuring Innovative Side Imaging Technology

This fish finder by Humminbird includes the latest technology that can improve your chances of catching fish, while still making it a fun and challenging experience. This model can be easily mounted on any craft for added security, with hardware included.

The side imaging feature provides a clear viewing experience, allowing you to take a closer look at the environment under the boat. This feature provides a 180 degree side to side view beneath the boat. The high frequency beams will reveal cover, structure, fish and any contour changes.

The sonar technology works to define and locate fish and any structures beneath the boat. Standard sonar will work by using a cone shaped beam in a straight line, while side-imaging sonar will cast two beams that are parallel. The side imaging sonar can cover a distance of up to 240ft in each direction, which gives you a total of 480ft of coverage. This feature will perform best when using boat speeds that are between two and six miles per hour. If you have anchored the boat, then the side imaging feature will simply display the same information repeatedly until the boat begins moving.

The device’s transducer will send out a sound wave signal and can determine the distance by measuring the time between the sound wave and transmission and when the sound wave is reflected off a structure. The transducer then uses the reflected signal to determine the exact size and location of any object in the water, including fish and structures.
