In True View mode, echoes stay consistent on the display while the boat is turning, so targets don’t have to update after the turn. Adjustable colors allow viewing the 8.4-inch display in most lighting conditions. The unit also can display as many as 100 AIS targets when interfaced with an AIS receiver. $2,495, including a 19-inch 4-kW antenna. Furuno USA, Camas, Washington, (360) 834-9300. furunousa.com
