Garmin sonar available thru-hull

ADVERTISEMENT

Garmin’s Panoptix sonar technology is now available with a thru-hull transducer for larger fibreglass boats. Joining the transom mount (PS30) and electric motor mount (PS31) transducers, the PS60 transducer provides three views – LiveVü Down, RealVü 3D Down or RealVü 3D Historical.

LiveVü Down provides real-time moving sonar images to reveal small baitfish and large target fish swimming around, as well as pinpoint their distance left or right and their depth.

RealVü 3D Down scans the area below the boat from bow to stern and port to starboard. A full 3D view of the area under the boat is constructed, showing bottom contour changes, fish and structure – even while stationary.

RealVü 3D Historical scrolls through the data as the boat moves to show the history of water columns.

For thru-hull installation, the Panoptix PS60 includes a stainless steel stem, fairing block, and mounting hardware for a boat with a deadrise between zero and 25 degrees. It’s equipped with an internal Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) sensor that adjusts sonar beams to compensate for boat motion.

Compatible with Garmin’s GPSMAP 8000 series, GPSMAP 7400 series, GPSMAP 751, 820 and 1020 series, the Garmin Panoptix PS60 thru-hull transducer will be available this month. Retail price is AU$6,999. For more details, visit www.garmin.com.
