The Garmin CHIRP Difference
The built-in sonar capabilities of ECHOMAP Plus 97sv include our CHIRP traditional sonar, one of the most sophisticated sonar technologies available for the fishing and boating public. CHIRP traditional sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. It also provides traditional sonar support for Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motors with integrated transducers.
Clear Scanning Sonar Images
Garmin CHIRP ClearVü™ scanning sonar gives you a nearly photographic image of what’s below your boat. Garmin CHIRP SideVü™ sonar shows you incredible detail of what lies off to the sides of your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. Garmin CHIRP traditional sonar and CHIRP ClearVü and CHIRP SideVü scanning sonars are combined into 1 transducer.
Preloaded Canada BlueChart g3 Charts
These highly detailed Canadian coastal charts cover the upper east coast of North America, U.S. and Canadian Great Lakes and upper western coast of North America from Aberdeen, Washington, to Glacier Bay, Alaska. Canada BlueChart g3 data is derived from official charts and private sources to provide navigational aids, spot soundings, depth contour, tides and currents and more.
