The Hook-5X features a 5" LED-backlit color display that’s easy to see in full sunlight and from wide viewing angles, and a combined CHIRP and DownScan Imaging Sounder that easily identifies fish targets, bottom contour, structure detail, bottom hardness, thermoclines and more.
CHIRP sonar technology combines the power of two CHIRP ranges for the ultimate in target separation and noise rejection. Hybrid Dual Imaging (HDI) gives you the power of two award-winning technologies -- Broadband Sounder™ PLUS Exclusive DownScan Imaging™ -- combined to provide the best possible view of the water column and everything in it.
DownScan Overlay is an exclusive technology that overlays DownScan Imaging™ onto the Broadband Sounder display for one stunning view that separates and clearly exposes fish targets from surrounding structure. Overlay transparency and color palettes are fully adjustable.
The patented Skimmer transducer with built-in water-temperature sensor can track bottom up to 75mph. Fish I.D. displays fish icons instead of fish arches to help identify fish targets, and the unit includes track and alarm options.
Advanced Signal Processing (ASP) reduces the need to manually adjust settings to see fish, structure and bottom detail more clearly, and the Pages button allows the user to quickly switch between different sonar views.
