The sleek new GP1871F and GP1971F models have the same TZtouch2-feel, using C-Map’s 4-D charts. The combo units feature plenty of useful data that is easily overlaid onto vector and raster charts. Satellite photos, tide information and bathymetric layers are just a few of the features integrated in these units.

Using Tru-Echo chirp technology over multiple frequencies, the units deliver bottom and fish marking detail in a clear, crisp fashion. Also included is the traditional fish finder with Rez-Boost data processing and the Accu-Fish feature for fish size assessment, and to find the best bottom composition with the most detail.

Able to utilize AIS technology and the Furuno DRS4W First Watch wireless radar system, the units easily accommodate the compact 19-inch radar dome and can be connected to any smartphone or tablet for additional flexibility.

The 7-inch and 9-inch presentation of the all-glass widescreen, multi-touch displays gives you access to all the features and menus at your fingertips. Completely intuitive, screenshots can be made of the display screens with just a tap of two fingers, making Furuno’s recent, innovative technology now available to vessels of all sizes.
