The PiranhaMax 230 offers incredible ease of use with true, grayscale images and a host of convenient features, making it the perfect companion for your fishing outings
The Humminbird PiranhaMax 230 uses dual 20-degree and 60-degree sonar beams that operates on the 200 kHz and 83 kHz frequencies to a depth of 600 feet, as well as a SmartCast 90-degree single-beam wireless sonar with an operating range of 100 feet to a depth of 120 feet. Able to cover a wider area for fish, and give more precise bottom detail, this fish finder reliably provides a target separation of only 2.5 inches. This unit utilizes a high-speed, microdynamic transducer that provides optimum performance even at top speeds, and includes water temperature via the transducer.
The PiranhaMax 230 has a high-definition, 4-inch FSTN LCD display with 160 x 132 lines of resolution in 4-level grayscale that delivers a clearly better image of the bottom, fish and structure. The 230 features an Easy One-Touch control that accesses its full set of advanced functions such as Selective FishID+ with target depth, the three-level backlight for night fishing, and the ability to see fish below as solid symbols and around the boat as hollow symbols. This unit also features user-controlled zoom, sensitivity, depth range, bottom view, chart speed controls and alarms for fish and depth. All the information you want can be viewed at a glance on the 230's big, easy-to-read digital readouts, which can be enhanced via such features as the high-contrast bottom black viewing option.
