I’m curious to find out what the max depth range is.

  • HyperVision uses super high frequencies (1.2 megahertz) and CHIRP technology to bring a new level of precision imaging to DownVision, SideVision and RealVision 3D
  • 1.2 megahertz HyperVision mode is optimized for super high-resolution imagery up to 100’ (30 meters)
  • Switch to standard 350 kHz CHIRP sonar for longer range, high-resolution imaging, and ranges up to 600’ (180 meters)
  • Element’s advanced CHIRP sonar also operates in the high-frequency 200kHz range for fish targeting, high-speed bottom tracking, and depths up to 900ft

Technology pisses me of.

They way way it goes I guess.

Element is a less capable series compared to Axiom, no touch and no Ethernet. Seems to be targeted bass fishing and coastal.

I would assume a module with the high frequency scanning sonar will be available for Axiom and Axiom Pro.

this is how I felt when I learned about the element series but as abbor says they seem to be lesser units targeted at inshore.

It's 100% an inshore shallow water design. It will do well against the Lowrance, Garmin EchoMap etc.

I was told the same. Keep my axiom as the Element will not network with other units. I still plan on getting a element just for a bottom machine in my inshore boat as It would be a great backup for GPS and a MFD with realvision, 3D vision

If you had a Raymarine Element on a Bayliner Element, what would you call it?















A compound

I was a tester for Element on the Riptide Charters Bay Boat. I was VERY pleased with how the Hypervison worked. Even in a pre production setup it was smooth and easy to run. I was mainly testing the sonar but all aspects worked great. The resolution on the Hypervison was impressive. I used it off NC in water to around d 70' deep.

Showed the rubble from the local ARs VERY well as well as the bait around them.

I run Axiom Pro on the boat normally. While the Element isn't designed to expand ike Axiom it's not a major step down in performance, IMHO it's a hell of a bang for the buck. Should be a big hit.

Mega Imaging has been dominated by Humminbird for a few years now. Kudos to Raymarine for coming out with Mega FF. About time for this. One can never catch up with the new FF technology. I am going to work a few more shifts to justify the new toy. Yes, Mega Imaging Element I need one. Hopefully it is worth the money.

It is more affordable than HB FF and it gives me 3D, side imaging, and down imaging in 1 transducer to avoid too many holes in my boat transducer.

I use Axiom 9" RV100 from my open bow boat and slayer propel 10 feet kayak too and it has been great. The Element will add more power to my fishing in 2019.

One of the nice features for Element is Raymarine RealBathy, personal sonar mapping. It is a part of Navionics Sonar Charts Live with valid subscription but RealBathy, if I understand correctly is working separately from Sonar Chart Live. Is there any sights that this feature will be implemented in Light House 3 in near future?

Garmin introduced a mega freq over a year ago.
