Garmin has released a new range of fishfinders for kayaks and trailerable boats under the Garmin Echo DV range.

The new Garmin fishfinder range includes four new models: the Garmin Echo 551DV, Garmin Echo 301DV, Garmin Echo 201DV and Garmin Echo 151DV.

Each fishfinder model includes an all-in-one transducer for 77/200kHz Garmin HD-IDsonar and what Garmin calls DownVü scanning sonar.

In a media release, Garmin also emphasised what it calls Smooth Scaling capability. This is said to provide smooth transitions from shallow to deep water and back again. The new fishfinders includes Sonar Rewind, allowing the user to scroll back into sonar history.

 

HOW FAR DOWN DO THEY SEE?

The Garmin fishfinder Echo 551DV model has a 12.7cm (5in) colour screen and has 4000W peak-to-peak power with a depth of up to 700m.

The Garmin fishfinder Echo 301DV has an 8.9cm (3.5in) colour screen while the Garmin fishfinder echo 201DV has a 12.7cm (5in grayscale) screen. Both offer 2400W peak-to-peak power and have a maximum depth of around 530m.

The Garmin Echo 151DV has a 10.7cm (4in) grayscale screen with a depths of up to 485m, with 1600W peak-to-peak power.

Garmin says its touch-button units have an easily understood menu system, quick-release tilt/swivel mounts, plus transom and low-profile trolling motor transducer mounts.

All four Garmin fishfinder units support 50/200 kHz and 77/200kHz Minn Kota and MotorGuide transducers for electronic trolling motors.

 

RRP starts from around AU$249 for the Garmin Echo 151DV unit.
