According to the company, the Panoptix LiveScope series offers both 30-degree forward and 30-degree down real-time scanning sonar views, adding that the single-array LiveScope LVS12 transducer is an economical solution for inland and near-shore anglers without the need for a black box.
Garmin’s revolutionary Panoptix™ all-seeing sonar technology was the first to deliver live sonar images in real-time – forwards, backwards, and below the boat – even while stationary, the company continued. So now, thanks to the active scanning capabilities of Panoptix LiveScope, anglers can see images and movement so clear and precise that it’s even possible to distinguish between species of fish, the company said.
It’s available now for $499.99.
Also, ECHOMAP™ Plus sonar combination units will now include its new BlueChart g3 and LakeVü g3 cartography products, built-in for coastal and inland boating and fishing. The new g3 charts and maps blend the best of both Garmin and Navionics content together for the first time to deliver unparalleled coverage and detail, the company said. The Garmin ECHOMAP Plus series is available in a range of display sizes, and sold with and without transducers to accommodate nearly every angler and budget, the company added.
The updated ECHOMAP Plus series will be available starting Jan. 11, with suggested retail prices ranging from $199.99 to $1099.99.
