Default Furuno has released a new sounder.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before. FCV-295 with a 10.4" screen. See link.

I haven't found a price yet.

Cheers,

Looks like the 12.1":

My guess is that if the 12.1" is ~$3500 (http://www.wmjmarine.com/34017.html) then the 295 should be somewhere around $2500.

I would bet from the description that it is basically the electronic circuitry of the new NavNet DFF3 or the older ETR30N black box sounder integrated with a display to be a stand-alone sounder. That means for not too much more money, you can get the whole deal with plotter functions too by buying a NavNet MFD 12 and the black box.

Nomans,

You have a valid point but....
I guess it really comes down to one's definition of "not too much more money". A 12" Navnet 3D unit should be around $3.5K and the Dff3 should be around $2-$2.5K (for a total of ~$6K).
Anyhow, these new 3KW Furuno FFs will become #1 for fishermen in the years to come, just like the FCV 585 rules the 1KW division.
