The Clearest Sonar on the Water: CHIRP Sonar
Garmin’s CHIRP sonar sends a continuous sweep of low-high range frequencies, interpreting each individually on-screen to provide clear, high-resolution imagery with better target separation. Unlike standard sonar, which utilizes only a single frequency at a time, providing limited information and poor image quality, CHIRP sonar allows you to see the underwater environment in greater detail than ever before. Providing amazing detail, CHIRP sonar can separate even individual baitfish, especially with CHIRP ClearVü and SideVü tech. Illuminate humps, ledges, roadbeds, submerged bridges, railroads, and more with detail unmatched by anything else on the market. With a wide range of affordable offerings, Garmin sonar technology is sure to change the way you fish.
Watch Fishing Action Live: Panoptix LiveVü Forward Sonar
Available exclusively from Garmin, Panoptix™ sonar technology is the most innovative on the market, allowing you to witness fishing action live and in real-time. Since its introduction in 2015, it has significantly altered the competitive fishing game: Monitor fish swimming nearby, your lure, and experience reactions to bait with live 3-D imagery of the environment surrounding your boat, cashing in on bragging rights or a tournament winning payoff with the help of this game-changing tech.
Your Fast Track to Fishing Success: Garmin Fishfinders
Don’t come up short. With built-in GPS and industry-leading CHIRP sonar, Garmin STRIKER™ fishfinders deliver a more fulfilling fishing experience. Mark the ramp or dock where you started and easily located fish, noting favored spots for an easy return trip later. 4”, 5”, 7” or 9” GPS fishfinder models feature a sunlight-readable display and Garmin Quickdraw™ Contours mapping software. Free and user-friendly, Quickdraw Contours delivers the ability to instantly create HD fishing maps with 1-foot contours, then privately save or share them with the Garmin Connect™ Quickdraw community.

Steady as She Goes: Garmin Autopilots
Enjoy a more comfortable ride and avoid the added stressors of heading error and course deviation with Garmin autopilot systems. Designed to minimize rudder movement and power consumption, Garmin’s marine autopilot series can maintain course even if your vessel is pitching or rolling in rough water. With flexible installation potential and requiring minimal commissioning/calibration, from entry level autopilot systems to Garmin’s Gold autopilot line featuring remote steering and speed control, Garmin has an autopilot system designed to meet your budget and needs.
Keep Safety in Your Sights: Garmin Radar
High-definition Garmin xHD2 radome and open array radars deliver sharp imagery, superior target definition, and excellent range (48nm). Dual-range operation supports a fully independent split-screen display, providing far and close views in 8-bit color. Models with MotionScope Technology detect and highlight targets in different colors as they move toward or away from your vessel. Optional ‘No Transmit Zone’ protects vessel areas behind radar, allowing for more flexible installation. Dynamic Auto Gain and Dynamic Sea Filter continually adjust to surroundings, offering multiple levels of aggressiveness or manual gain adjustment options. Despite its advanced open-array features, as with all Garmin products, Garmin radar is intuitive and easy to use, allowing users to take advantage of prime performance without the need for advanced technical know-how. Future-proof your marine network with an xHD2 antenna and your choice of radome and open array platforms in a variety of transmit power options.
Key to Communication & Safety: VHF & AIS Marine Radios
Garmin VHF & AIS marine radios enhance safety. With 25-watts of transmitting power and the convenience of Automatic Identification Systems (AIS), all Garmin marine radios include Digital Selective Calling (DSC), enabling them to send/receive private and general calls, keeping you in contact with area boats and the shore. Most importantly, they provide digital emergency messages using stored Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) numbers, speeding access to emergency services during high-stakes rescue situations.
Fun & Functional: Garmin Marine Cameras
Whether you’re looking to capture onboard action or simply get the visual assistance you need backing out of a crowded marina, Garmin marine cameras have you covered, allowing you to easily keep an eye on areas inside and around your vessel. Ensure bump-free boating – or capture the fun and excitement of a day at sea, playing it time-and-again on your compatible Garmin chartplotter.
