    Both Chirp and non-Chirp transducers effectively detect the bottom, making them suitable for general cruising where capturing basic bottom depth is the primary goal. The traditional non-Chirp sonar performs adequately in such scenarios, revealing brush piles and fish, albeit with less clarity compared to its Chirp counterpart.

    Chirp transducers, however, elevate the game with advanced capabilities, yielding superior results.
