It's time you started fishing with the power of CHIRP sonar. The easy-to-install, easy-to-use 5" echoMAP CHIRP 55dv is compatible with optional transducers for high wide CHIRP sonar and Garmin CHIRP DownVü, the clearest scanning sonar on the water. It includes Quickdraw Contours software to instantly create your very own HD maps with 30 centimetre contours as you fish. Internal 5 Hz GPS updates position and heading 5 times per second. Cords plug directly into the mount, allowing you to quickly install and remove your device from power and mount. Transom and trolling motor mounts included.
The built-in sonar capabilities of echoMAP 55dv include CHIRP sonar, the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public. CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. It also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat's position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software. Use the user data sharing cable to share waypoints and routes between multiple devices.
Due to the range of transducers available, their capabilities and the range of customer needs, a transducer does need to be purchased separately. To use the echoMAP to receive a traditional sonar response then this transom mount option will have the desired effect. If you wish to utilise the Down Vu Imaging capabilities then this GT20TM transducer is recommended.
Clearest Scanning Sonar on the Water
Garmin CHIRP DownVü scanning sonar give you a nearly photographic image down to 228 metres1 below your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. Traditional Garmin HD-ID™ sonar and DownVü scanning sonar are combined into 1 transducer. Also provides HD-ID support for Minn Kota® and MotorGuide®trolling motors with integrated transducers.
