Maximize your angling experience with the Humminbird 596c HD DI fishfinder / echo sounder.
DualBeam PLUS Sonar
Sonar returns of your Humminbird 596c HD DI Down Imaging depth finder / fishing flasher can be blended together, viewed separately, or compared sideby-side. DualBeam PLUS is ideal for a wide range of conditions - from shallow to very deep water in both fresh and salt water. Depth capability is affected by such factors as boat speed, wave action, bottom hardness, water conditions, and transducer installation.
Down Imaging Sonar
The high detail of Down Imaging is created with high-frequency sound waves emitted in ultra-thin slices. The sonar returns from these waves produce a ""snapshot"" of what's below your boat onto your fish locator display.

Advanced Sonar Features
Switchfire Sonar - The exclusive Humminbird? SwitchFire? puts you in complete command of how the sonar returns on your fish finder appears. With two unique display modes, you can adjust your fish locator / depth finder to your fishing conditions on the fly. Add or remove detail, account for water depth, temperature and turbulence, even experiment with lure presentations?all at the push of a button. SwitchFire adds a whole new dimension to your fish sonar and 2D fishfinding.
Split Screen Zoom - Split Screen Zoom increases the resolution on your fish finder display to separate marine sonar returns that are very close together. In this view, the display is split to show a narrow slice of the full range view on the right and the zoomed view on the left. The zoom preview box on the right tracks the bottom in the full range view.
Wide Narrow Cone Split Screen - This screen on your fishfinder display separates the sonar data using the two primary user selectable down-looking beams simultaneously in split screen. Fish ID feature shown indicates depth and in which beam fish are detected by changing color, size, and/or orientation of the fish icon.
Selective Fish ID+ - Fish ID+ uses advanced sonar processing to interpret sonar returns, and displays a Fish Symbol on your fish finder display when very selective requirements are met. When a fish is detected, a fish icon and its depth are displayed above the return that has been classified as being a fish. Three different fish icons represent intensity of the sonar return, and provide an indicator of relative fish size on your fish sonar screen.
Real Time Sonar RTS Window - A Real Time Sonar (RTS?) Window appears on the right side of the display in the Sonar View only. The RTS? Window always updates at the fastest rate possible and shows only the returns from the bottom, structure, and fish that are within the depth / fish finder transducer beam. The RTS? window can be displayed as narrow (standard), wide, or off.
TrueArch Technology - Many marine sonar products use post processing software to ?enhance? the arching effect produced when suspended targets enter and leave a sonar beam. This can slow down performance and exaggerate the information displayed on your marine equipment display. Humminbird?s TrueArch? Technology utilizes parallel processing of fish sonar data to eliminate unwanted interference and noise and reveal unaltered sonar echoes resulting in true arches of fish targets. This helps anglers more quickly discern the size and depth of fish targets displayed on the fish locator screen.
