Conquer the Full Spectrum

Conquer the Full Spectrum

Only Humminbird lets you view low, medium and high CHIRP ranges, either individually or all at once. Dial in a specific kHz, search a defined range or cover the entire spectrum—it’s up to you. Because it uses a broader range of frequencies, Humminbird CHIRP also delivers extreme target separation, lower noise and richer, higher-resolution images and the power to reach depths of 10,000 feet (3,000 meters).

Your fishing arsenal isn’t limited to one or two lures. No sir. It’s filled with options. Imagine your Humminbird® as a tackle box. You have a wealth of tools at your fingertips, each with its own job. And think of Humminbird CHIRP as yet another lure, with a specific task: showing you fish that other forms of SONAR cannot.

Improved Fish Detail

Improved Fish Detail

Nothing fishy here. With CHIRP, you can tell the difference between a sport fish, a baitfish and a weed based on the finely detailed arches.

Greater Clarity

Greater Clarity

Don’t miss a thing. Thanks to the precision of CHIRP, you can clearly identify subtle structural details, like bridge cables, that can clue you into where the fish are.

More Target Separation

More Target Separation

No more “blobs.” In traditional 2D SONAR, it can be difficult to tell where one object begins and another ends. That’s not the case with the target separation of CHIRP.

Reduced Noise

Reduced Noise

Filter out the nonsense. CHIRP sweeps multiple frequencies to eliminate confusing noise and interference. For example, see separation between fish and brush.

Unmatched Precision

Unmatched Precision

Dial it in. CHIRP allows you to select individual frequencies, enabling you to see the smallest details. For instance, monitor your jigging action on screen.

Increased Depth

Increased Depth

Get to the bottom of it. By blasting more energy below the surface, CHIRP SONAR can take you to extreme depths with greater accuracy.

All forms of CHIRP are not created equal. While competitors were flooding the market with technologies that barely qualify for the term, Humminbird was developing and perfecting a true Broadband CHIRP worthy of its innovative legacy. We did not cut corners—with full broadband capabilities built into our HELIX™ 12 Series CHIRP models. And while our competition picks just a few frequencies for you, we give you full spectrum capability, plus the power to select your own start and end frequencies.

Superior Data Processing

Superior Data Processing

Unless you have a PhD in SONAR interpretation, raw CHIRP information is meaningless without the right software to connect the data points. Humminbird’s CHIRP Processing Engine uses proprietary algorithms to more efficiently compare and crunch CHIRP data, instantly drawing an easy-to-understand image.

More Pulses

More Pulses

Traditional transducers put you on hold, wasting valuable time “charging up” before each SONAR pulse. Humminbird CHIRP transducers are engineered to minimize charge time, firing off more pulses in a given period of time. More pulses mean more information and improved target separation.

Greater Power

Greater Power

By bouncing more energy off the bottom, Humminbird CHIRP is able to provide more detailed returns, especially in deep water.

Ultra-Wide Broadband

Ultra-Wide Broadband

Some so-called CHIRP SONAR products only sweep a narrow range of frequencies, giving you a very limited view of the underwater world. By comparison, Humminbird CHIRP unlocks your transducer’s full CHIRP capability, scanning its widest possible band of frequencies. With more frequencies to compare, Humminbird’s CHIRP Processing Engine can more effectively filter out noise, delivering a clearer, more precise picture.

No matter your boat, fishing application or preferred body of water, Humminbird has a CHIRP solution for you. Choose from two industry-leading solutions in order to best meet your needs.
