What is CHIRP and How it Works
CHIRP stands for “Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse.” That’s a fancy way of saying it will show you those fish that standard sonars can’t. How’s that? A standard sonar sends one single frequency at a time. Since feedback from one single frequency is limited, the clarity and resolution of the sonar imagery will also be limited. CHIRP sends a continuous sweep of frequencies ranging from low to high, interpreting these frequencies individually upon their return. Since this continuous sweep provides CHIRP with a much wider range of information, a CHIRP sonar is able to create much clearer, higher resolution imagery.
The crisp clarity of the CHIRP+ 2 displays makes it ideal for identifying fish, locating structure, understand bottom consistency and, most importantly, differentiating between targets and objects, so you have a strategic advantage over your target species.
