Simplicity and Performance
Four-Inch Grayscale Display
The PiranhaMAX 170 features a four-inch, eight-level grayscale display with 260 x 160 pixel resolution, so you get a good view of the action--even in direct sunlight.
Automatically determines depth and makes adjustments to keep the bottom and fish visible on the display.
Easy-install transom-mount transducer.
The PiranhaMAX extremely easy to use. For most anglers, all you'll ever need to do is power on and fish. The PiranhaMAX automatically determines depth and makes adjustments to keep the bottom and fish visible on the display.
The PiranhaMAX uses sonar technology to send sound waves from the transducer into the water. The returned "echoes" are plotted on the display, creating a very accurate picture of the underwater world, including distance to underwater objects such as the bottom, fish, and structure.
Dual Beam Sonar
The PiranhaMAX 170 uses a 200/83 kHz dual beam sonar system with a wide (60 degree) area of coverage. Dual Beam sonar is optimized to show the greatest bottom definition using a narrow (20 degree) beam yet can still indicate fish found in the wide (60 degree) beam when the Fish ID+ feature is turned on. Dual Beam is ideal for a wide range of conditions--from shallow to very deep water, in both fresh and salt water. Note that boat speed, wave action, bottom hardness, water conditions, and transducer installation can all affect depth capability.
Fish ID+ uses advanced sonar processing to interpret sonar returns, and displays a Fish Symbol when very selective requirements are met. When a fish is detected, a fish icon and its depth are displayed above the return that has been classified as being a fish. Three different fish icons represent intensity of the sonar return, and provide an indicator of relative fish size.
Fish and Depth Alarms
When Fish ID+ is on, you can set an alarm to sound when the PiranhaMAX detects fish that correspond to your settings. You can also set a depth alarm from 3 to 99 feet--an audible alarm sounds when the depth is equal to or less than the setting.
