Included with both the 50s and 70s is a dual-beam transducer that transmits a 77/200 kHz signal. The devices will also have wireless connectivity capability, giving anglers the opportunity to connect and access future marine-specific Garmin apps via smartphone or tablet.
The perfect accessory to accompany the 50s is the new echo portable kit. This soft-sided carrying case with rigid structure for durability and support can harbor any existing echo series fishfinders and the new echoMAP 5-inch combo products and is an absolute necessity for the fisherman on the go. The echo portable provides a built-in cable management and storage system for a transducer to ensure that it can be transported at a moment’s notice. Alongside trays designed for battery and transducer storage, the echo portable truly provides all the fishing necessities in an easy-to-handle bag.
The echoMAP 50s and 70s are scheduled to be available in the first quarter of 2013. For additional information regarding the echoMAP 50s and 70s, visit www.garmin.com/combos.
