New Raymarine Element Sonar

Raymarine have launched a completely new line of Sonar/GPS navigation displays. This new Element line features Raymarine’s new HyperVision™ 1.2 megahertz sonar technology, quad-core performance, and their new LightHouse Sport operating system.

Element Sonar: Turn Up the Resolution
With an unprecedented built-in 6-channel sonar, Element delivers the sharpest view of the underwater world. HyperVision™ 1.2 megahertz super-high resolution CHIRP technology takes DownVision, SideVision, and RealVison 3D sonar to the next level of precision imaging and fish identification, letting anglers identify structures, vegetation, and fish with life-like clarity.

Element Simplicity: New LightHouse Sport OS
Element is smart and easy to use with the new LightHouse Sport operating system. Simple keypad controls let anglers focus on the fish – not the owner’s manual. An oversized waypoint key marks favourite fishing spots and three user-programmable keys allow quick access to frequently used screen configurations.

Element Speed: Quad Core Performance
Element has unprecedented power in its category. Each model is powered by an onboard quad-core processor, delivering instantaneous chart redraw, smooth RealVision 3D imaging and fast response while underway.
