Furuno will also come with a new fishfinder, Black Box Bottom Discrimination Sounder
BBDS1. Strangly not CHIRP as everyone have been expecting.

Indicates a major component of the bottom among mud, sand, gravel, and rock.
Works with NavNet, NavNet vx2 and NavNet 3D
Dual-frequency 50/200 kHz
FDF (Furuno Digital Filter) makes the picture clearer and easier to discriminate between baitfish and larger target species
FDF technology helps adjust gain and output power as well as suppresses main bang (echoes just below transducer)
8/16/64 color echo presentations
8 range scales to 2,500 feet
Selectable output power of 600W or 1kW
Audio and visual alarms for water depth, fish echoes and water temperature*
*Requires appropriate sensors
Wide variety of transducer options
Selectable automatic cruising or fishing modes to suit your style of boating
Automatic function for detecting fish and bottom in both shallow and deep water
White line feature helps discriminate fish lying near the bottom

The BBDS1 has been coming for some time. Regarding CHIRP this is from the Furuno Forum:

Hi guy's,
I was wondering if Furuno had chirp in the work's yet? I see Simrd first then Garmin now I see Raymarine also has a chirp black box.I know there is a new 585 on the way.I have been told here it will NOT be chirp.I want to upgrade from my 585 with a b260.I just do not know when to do it,and when and if something new and better is comming out.
Thank you

Yes, we have a machine waiting in the wings and hopefully we will be testing the final version really soon.
