FLIR unveils Raymarine Element
FLIR Systems has today announced the Raymarine Element, a new generation of advanced, combination sonar and GPS displays. Featuring the acclaimed Raymarine RealVision 3D and new HyperVision sonar technology, the Element series delivers lifelike imaging and helps meet the demands of both fresh and saltwater fishos with advanced sonar, versatile mapping capabilities, and a highly intuitive user experience.
Building on the success of FLIR’s award-winning Raymarine Axiom navigation displays, the Raymarine Element incorporates integrated patent pending RealVision 3D sonar technology, improving anglers’ underwater view with 3D bottom imagery and more precise location of fish targets. Element also introduces new patent pending HyperVision 1.2-megahertz sonar technology, featuring ultra-high Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse (CHIRP) sonar frequencies. HyperVision enhances the DownVision, SideVision, and RealVision 3D sonar, allowing anglers to see structure, vegetation, and fish with lifelike detail.
Optimised for a simplified user experience, Element’s new LightHouse Sport operating system and intuitive keypad controls let anglers quickly mark their favourite fishing spots and create their own high-definition bathymetric maps using the new Raymarine RealBathy real-time sonar map generator capability. Element’s user experience is further enhanced by an onboard quad-core processor, delivering instantaneous chart redraw, smooth RealVision 3D imaging, and fast response while on the water.
“With the new Raymarine Element series, we are making our most advanced sonar technology and intuitive user experience available to a larger audience of recreational boaters,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO at FLIR Systems.
“Element has impressive performance for its category, with the remarkable clarity of HyperVision imaging and our new LightHouse Sport operating system. Together, Element redefines the category for combined sonar and GPS navigation displays, giving anglers topline capabilities.”
The Element series consists of 7-, 9-, and 12-inch display models.
