|The LS4100 is a dual frequency fish finder designed for small pleasure craft. It features a waterproof 5 high-definition silver bright LCD screen that offers a remarkably detailed picture of fish and bottom structure. With a resolution of 240 (H) x 320 (V) pixels, it has the highest resolution in its class! The LS4100 offers dual frequency capabilities, both 50 and 200 kHz, and has an outstanding 300 W RMS (2,400 Watt peak-to-peak) output power, making this fish finder the leader in its class.|
Basic display modes include single Low Frequency or High Frequency, Dual, Bottom-Lock Expansion, Bottom Zoom, A-scope, Marker Zoom and two Nav Data display modes. Choose from a variety of operating modes, including manual or two auto modes, fishing or cruising. The cruising mode uses a higher clutter refection setting than the fishing mode, making it useful to track the bottom while cruising.
The range can be changed manually or automatically. The LS4100 will redraw the entire echogram so that the contour can be shown seamlessly.
The LS4100 has the unique ability to be a handy navigational organizer when connected to appropriate sensors. It can display a variety of information including: water temperature, wind direction/speed, Lat/Lon, XTE and distance run in a graphical or text format. With the BBWGPS GPS/WAAS receiver connected, the Mini-Navigator feature is capable of storing up to 12 waypoints with a programmable name. Any waypoint can be selected as a destination.
The LS4100TM comes standard with a dual frequency (50/200kHz) plastic transom mount transducer. The transducer has built in depth and temperature.

Furuno LS4100 Fish Finder with Transom Mount Transducer Reviews

Comments about Furuno LS4100 Fish Finder with Transom Mount Transducer:
I get wrong depth readings with the Furuno LS4100 Echo Sounder when in shallow water. (The transducer is their 525T-PWD transom mount device.) This is water less than 5 feet in depth. This applies to both fresh water and salt water. This is especially so in silty salt water. I boat mainly at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay along the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and the Eastern Shore Barrier Islands of VA. At some locations, I'm in 40-60 feet of water. In other locations, I'm frequently in ocean shoal areas with ocean swells breaking. This is a very dangerous environment to be in, especially when currents and/or wind are blowing my boat toward the breakers. I also get wrong depth readings at various boat ramp sites (both fresh and salt waters). The readings frequently bounce around with readings that are too high, sometimes double the value. I've experimented with changing the GAIN setting, and this fails to give better readings.
A reputable electronics department in the Richmond VA area tells me that this device is too powerful for the type of boating that I do. It's for "blue-water boating". Well, such boating still requires reliable readings when passing thru dangerous ocean inlets.
I have no faith in this Furuno product, and do not recommend it.
