FCV 628

 Hi All

Can anyone tell me the difference other than screen size between the 628 and the 588?

Will the 728 do for a small boat out to say 40mts?

 

Thanks

 Pretty much the same at lower depths but a larger screen is easier to read. Its when you want to go deeper is where the 588 comes into its own. A 1kw should get you to over 500m. My mates boat runs an older 620 with a p66 tranny and we can read up to 200m on low frequency ok but its not great. But we can also read 50m at 30 knots.

Is just a smaller unit that puts out 600w of power versus 1kw for the 588.

They will both work on the same transuders.

628 will work fine in that depth with the standard p66 transducer.

The bigger screen is easier to see if you can afford it
