Echo sounder JFC-180BB

  • Fishing





With the Conditional Memory (CM) keys you can personalize and set your preferred display mode. A professional user can set up to 4 different frequencies at the same time, type of echo display, pulse length, bandwidth zoom display and gain. Novice operators can select from many auto functions such as range, shift, gain, transmit power and white line.


The color backlit keyboard makes operating the echo sounder easy and straightforward. A USB and SD card slot at the side of the keyboard allows saving images (screenshots), waypoints and backing up your settings.

Heave compensation

In rough ocean conditions with high waves, the JFC-180 can correct the up and down (attitude) movement. This function is standard available but requires an external connection to for example the JRC GPS compass (JLR-21). This is especially useful for fishing vessels where high waves can be compensated to accurately display the depth of the fish echo or to even the sea bottom.
