Furuno waasp system

Postby DeepDropHND » Sun Jul 02, 2017 6:54 am

Hello,
Im a commercial reef fisherman(yellowtail snapper, grouper, red snapper etc.) I am seriously considering changing my equipment out for the WAASP system. I want to know what does a complete WAASP system cost and what kind of guarantee would i get living outside USA.

DeepDropHND,
The list price for a WASSP Gen-3 DRX is $10,270.00 and a 160Khz transducer with 10m of cable is $7220.00. A stuffing tube is $695. You can use an SC-30 Satellite compass for stabilization. An SC-30 antenna, 30m cable and IF-NMEASC is around $3400 list price. A Navionics chart is around $250.00. You will need to supply a computer but we can supply the specs for that. The WASSP and SC-30 has a two years warranty.

Do you have a Furuno agent you are working with? In not, try contacting Osvaldo Flores of Furuno Panama, his email is oflores@furuno.com.pa.

If you should have any additional questions please let me know.

Snips,

What about the DFF3D system?
Would this be a similar (good enough) set up that would do what i need for my style of fishing? I mean if im going to get the same 3d scan of the bottom and save a TON of money then by all means give me the cheaper system.
Thank you

DeepDropHND,
Comparing the DFF-3D to WASSP is like comparing apples to oranges. The main difference is that the DFF-3D has a limited history of displaying bottom/fish data.

When will the F3 WASSP be compatible with OLEX software? I was told October 2017 but nothing yet.

Levi,
We should be sea trialing the F-3/Olex interface in the next three weeks.

Thanks Snips, can't wait to try it! On our way to calibrate the Wassp F3, looks awesome!

Snips,

After interfacing the SC30 with the WASSP with success, we lost the heading in our autopilot (Furuno 711c). Any ideas?
