Furuno FCV628

I recently bought a Furuno fcv 628 sounder with a transom mount p66 transducer I have been unable to use the rez boost ,accu fish and bottom discrimination features My question is dose anyone use these features and how do they rate there effectiveness I am assuming my problem is the transducer so what transducer are you using

 Having used one and having scuba dived the locations , sounded i rate rez boost and discrimination features highly. For even better results you can up your details with a dedicated transducer have aword with the boys at Taylor Marine ask for Reece if he is available he is a Furuno GURU.

 i would have thought Greg your p66 would do Rez boost and accu fish. And I'm under the impression you don't need a designated transducer. Unfortunately I haven't used Rez boost yet but I want to get the 588 which has it and I asked Reece at the palagic night if my old tm260 will give me the ability to use it and his answer was yes.

 P66 is capable of Rez boost, Accufish and BD. You need to select the correct transducer in settings, the P66 is 525STID-PWD or 525T-PWD.
