Furuno FCV295 is designed for professional fishing operations. It features a 10.4″ color LCD display that provides superior viewing even in direct sunlight. Depending on the strength of the echoes returned, the device displays echoes in 8, 16, or 64 colors. Choosing two frequencies from 28 to 200 KHz is possible with Furuno’s free synthesizer (FFS) transceiver, which offers a wide range of operating frequencies. A single, two or three watts of output power can be selected.

Furuno FCV295 ReviewIn addition to the ability to display highly defined images of underwater conditions, the FCV295 has a number of other key features. By optimizing gain, the digital filter produces highly defined images of underwater conditions and eliminates noise, resulting in sharp and detailed echo images, allowing the detection of fish and fishing reefs with absolute clarity. It transmits more detailed information about underwater conditions than conventional fish finders by over 30%.

In addition to automatic transmission, the device provides detailed detection of seabed targets by automatically raising transmission rates in shallow waters and lowering them in deep waters. A variety of display modes and functions are available on the FCV295 to assist skippers.

  • Images of the underwater environment in high definition
  • Seabed targets can be detected automatically using the auto transmission function
  • For simple and intuitive information, a variety of display modes and functions are available

What We Don’t Like

  • The transducer is sold separately
  • Some users may find it expensive


FAQs on Furuno FCV295 in 2023

What is the maximum frequency range of the Furuno FCV295?

The maximum frequency range of the Furuno FCV295 is 28-200 kHz.

Can the Furuno FCV295 display echoes in multiple colors?

There are eight, sixteen, or 64 colors available with Furuno FCV295 echoes, adjusting the color based on the return echo strength.

Can the output power of the Furuno FCV295 be adjusted?

The Furuno FCV295 can adjust its output power from 1kW to 3kW.

Does the Furuno FCV295 have an auto transmission function?

In shallow waters, the Furuno FCV295 automatically increases its transmission rate, while in deep waters, it reduces it, enabling detailed searches for seabed targets.

What is the best radar for detecting long distances?

Several types of radar are known to be effective at detecting long-distance objects. Some of the most common ones are the following:

  • X-band radar: There are many types of radar on the market today, but one of the most common is the 10.5GHz (frequency) radar, which is mainly used for long-range detection, such as radar guns and traffic enforcement equipment.
  • K-band radar: Newer radar guns and other traffic enforcement equipment typically use this kind of radar because of its long-range detection capabilities at 24.05GHz.
  • Ka-band radar: The newer radar guns and other traffic enforcement equipment often use this type of radar that operates at a frequency of 34.2GHz.
  • Laser radar: Law enforcement agencies use this type of radar more often than the others because of its long-range detection capabilities, laser beams instead of radio waves. This type of radar is less common than the others, but as they gain popularity, it will be more common as well.

A variety of factors determine radar detection range, including the type of radar, the power of the radar transmitter, and the sensitivity of the radar receiver. In addition to being able to detect multiple wavelengths of radar, some radar detectors are capable of detecting the X, K, and Ka bands, making them more useful for detection at long distances.
