The S2016 combines CHIRP-enabled sonar with a 16-inch widescreen display for an extensive on-screen history, and intuitive keypad-driven operation for reliable control in all conditions. This dedicated echosounder integrates seamlessly with other Simrad displays, while offering charter captains and long-range sportfishing vessels the reliability of a self-contained sonar platform.
S2000 series displays feature a built-in echosounder module with CHIRP technology to deliver higher resolution, improved target separation, and greater image clarity than traditional sonar. Simrad technology makes CHIRP available not only for special-purpose CHIRP transducers, but also for traditional single-frequency transducers. This offers a cost-effective upgrade to CHIRP technology by installing an S2000 series fish finder for use with your existing transducer. Installation is simple thanks to a plug-and-play port for Simrad and Airmar transducers with blue seven-pin connectors, and a range of optional adapters to enable easy retrofit to other transducer types.
The S2016 offers a combination of excellent vertical detail and a lengthy on-screen echosounder history, with a high-definition 16-inch widescreen display. This reduces your need to zoom or scroll, while making it easy to backtrack to promising areas. Direct-access menu keys beside the display provide intuitive control of on-screen menu options, enabling one-button access to key settings and features. With reliable, long-life operation and clear tactile feedback, the S2016’s large buttons are suitable for use in rough seas, while travelling at speed, and with wet or gloved hands. An HDMI output lets you mirror the built-in screen on a secondary display, delivering echosounder visibility at a second station without a second fish finder.
It’s easy to share sonar data with other Simrad displays over an Ethernet network. S2000 series fish finders can also be used as dedicated displays for the built-in sonar module on Ethernet-connected Simrad multifunction displays, freeing your main display for other purposes such as navigation or radar. Other devices can be integrated via NMEA 2000® and NMEA 0183® connectivity, enabling additional functionality such as marking a waypoint on your chartplotter straight from the fish finder’s history in order to revisit a promising spot.
