Garmin® Introduces DownVü And SideVü Scanning Sonar

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced DownVü and SideVü, their down and side-scanning sonar technology that provides high resolution imagery and excellent precision for what’s in the water below and beside the boat.

“Garmin is excited to bring scanning sonar to the market for our customers,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of worldwide sales. “For anglers of all types, it’s crucial to have a comprehensive understanding of what is directly below and to the side of boat when out on the water. Now, with DownVü and SideVü, we provide that valuable insight on a large range of Garmin marine products.”

DownVü

Garmin DownVü is a high-frequency sonar that provides a near picture quality representation of objects, structure and fish that the boat is passing over. With a finer, concentrated sonar signal scanning a designated area, DownVü provides excellent resolution with great target separation in fresh and saltwater.

New echo™ dv Series

An updated line of echo fishfinders will now support DownVü. Whether it’s a 4-inch grayscale echo unit or one with full color display, anglers can receive the same clear precision of DownVü on a dedicated fishfinder with a DownVü transducer. This updated echo series will also support a 50kHz transducer, further expanding the functionality to saltwater anglers.

New echoMAP™ dv Series

With the introduction of DownVü, Garmin will also release a new series of echoMAP units with built-in DownVü capability. The echoMAP 50dv and 70dv boast the same vibrant screens and capabilities as the previously released echoMAP series but now add DownVü scanning technology.

Updated GPSMAP® 500 and 700 Series

For any angler who’s already purchased a new GPSMAP 500 or 700 series device without built-in DownVü, a free software update will be available through the Garmin website that allows these units to utilize DownVü scanning. Then, with a DownVü transducer (adapter required for some models), the GPSMAP unit will provide full DownVü technology at the angler’s fingertips.
