Default Furuno 582L Temp Readout

Question about the Furuno 582 Temp Readout. Does it just display digits, or does it have a graph like the Lowrances and Raymarines?

I like the graph on my current unit because I don't have to stare at the unit when running. A quick occasional glance lets me know if I passed a temp break, and I can turn around and go back to look for it. My guess is it would be easier to miss a break if you only had a digital readout and you weren't constantly watching the unit.

Thanks for the feedback.

the 582L has a line graph that it can superimpose over the soundings. It works pretty good. Just watch the line across the screen, if it goes up or down there ya go. On the left edge of the screen is the scale to reference the temp against the line and the current temp is displayed at the top of the screen...

Thanks pthein. That's what I was looking for. I couldn't find anything in specs,descriptions, etc. That was the final sticking point on whether to buy the 582 or not. I think I'm sold.

Maybe you've already figured it out but neither of the correct responses you got mentioned it - the 582L has both a digital readout and the graph. If you have temperature input the digital readout part will always show on the top band of the screen, but the graphic part is something you have to trun on in the setup. On the graphic display.

I don't know about these other guys but as for myself, I leave the graph part turned off almost all of the time. The number at the top is all I need to see. Oh, and no one mentioned this yet, there is also an audible alarm you can set for the temperature. It can be set to go off when the temperature goes into a specified range or it can be set to go off if you move out of a specified range.

These features shouldn't suprise you actually. Keep in mind that we are talking about the single best LCD fish finder ever made for a small boat here. Congratulations on your decision to buy one of them.

Thom hit it right on!!! I also never use the graph but I do use the audible alarm!!! It is invaluable when looking for temp breaks while tuna trolling. I think it also is the best small boat sonar available!!!
