Humminbird celebrated its fourth consecutive award at ICAST when it picked up the prize in the Electronics category of the New Product Showcase.
The Johnson Outdoors company’s roll of ICAST honour over the last four years reads:
- 2011 – Humminbird 1158c DI Combo;
- 2012 – 360 Imaging™;
- 2013 Bow 360
- 2014 ONIX® Series.
The latest win capped an incredible ICAST for Johnson Outdoors with its brands, Minn Kota® winning the Best Boating Accessory for the Ulterra® and Old Town Canoe – part of Johnson Watercraft – winning the Best in Show and Best of Boats for its Predator XL.
“It’s a real honour to be recognised by the world’s fishing media as the best in angling electronics,” said Dale Logue, Humminbird Director of Marketing. “Even better that Johnson Outdoor brands were so well received across numerous ICAST product categories.
“What these wins really validate is a lot of hard work – from engineering to our American manufacturing to customer service – which only strengthens our continued mission to create technologies and a ‘complete fishing system’ that gives anglers an edge on the water.”
Not only did ONIX score big with voters for its touchscreen control, but its Cross Touch™ also proved a hit – allowing users to take command of their unit display from touchscreen or touchpad.
Similarly, ONIX offers an unparalleled host of features and technologies that have never been seen before in sonar/GPS combos, including the addition of industry-first proprietary Humminbird Lakemaster™ technologies like AutoChart™ Live and SmartStrike™ which make real-time user-generated high-definition mapping and predictive fishing patterning possible within the ONIX unit itself, with no PC or upload to a server or cloud required.
That is combined with winning technologies including HD Side Imaging™, HD Down Imaging™, DualBeam™ PLUS with Switchfire™, Precsion GPS, built-in TriFuel™ cartography, 1024 x 768V screen resolution and ethernet additions like RADA, NMEA 2000 and L-M-H frequency CHIRP.
