Equinox 600 and 800 Software Update Details and Download 0

EQUINOX SOFTWARE UPDATE 3.0

WHAT IS NEW?

A new Single Frequency of 4 kHz has been added to the existing 5, 10, 15, 20 and 40 kHz options. This new 4 kHz frequency enhances the detection of large deep targets, particularly those found in parts of Asia. As a result of optimising for these conditions, this new frequency may respond differently for users compared to the other single frequencies. 

All other single and multi-frequency settings are unchanged in their performance. 

In addition to the 4 kHz upgrade feature, various stability enhancements have been included. 

For step-by-step instructions on downloading the software, please refer to the following brochures:
