The Garmin 010-01805-01 echoMAP CHIRP 94sv is an easy-to-install and easy-to-use 9-inch chartplotter that includes a transducer with high wide CHIRP sonar and Garmin CHIRP SideVu/Garmin CHIRP ClearVu for clear scanning sonar images. The echoMAP CHIRP 94sv supports Panoptix sonar and includes preloaded Quickdraw Contours software, allowing you to instantly create your own HD maps with 1-foot contours as you fish. The internal 5 Hz GPS updates your position and heading 5 times per second. This unit provides NMEA 2000 support for engine data, autopilots, sensors, the FUSION-LINK audio system and more. Cords plug directly into the mount, so you can quickly install and remove your device from power and mount. It's time you harnessed the power of CHIRP sonar.
The echoMAP 94sv's built-in sonar capabilities include the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public: CHIRP sonar. CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. CHIRP also includes sonar-recording capability that not only coordinates the timing of the sonar return with the position of your boat, but saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort planning software. Use the user data sharing cable to share waypoints and routes between multiple devices.
Garmin ClearVu scanning sonar provides a wide, nearly photographic image of what is passing below your boat, allowing you to clearly see submerged objects, structure, and fish. Traditional Garmin HD-ID sonar and ClearVu scanning sonar are combined into a single transducer. It also provides HD-ID support for MotorGuide and Minn Kota trolling motors with integrated transducers.
The Garmin echoMAP 94sv is preloaded with BlueChart g2 HD maps that cover the coastal U.S. (West Coast, East Coast, Gulf of Mexico, Canadian and U.S. sides of the Great Lakes). Also included are charts for the entire U.S. coastline and everything available on NOAA charts. In addition to the basic charts, depth contours, currents, tidal stations, IALA symbols and included fishing charts, BlueChart g2 HD offers smooth transitioning between zoom levels and more seamless continuity across chart boundaries. Customize your screens with Shallow Water Shading, which lets you contour shade for all depth contours shallower than what your pre-determined safe depth. Fishing charts emphasize bathymetric contours with less visual clutter on the display. And there's also a choice 3-D ''over-the-bow'' or standard 2-D direct overhead map views for easier chart reading and orientation. Fast, responsive 5 Hz GPS and GLONASS refreshes your position and heading 5 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. Now it is quick and easy to drop up to 5,000 accurate waypoints and find your way back to your secret fishing hot spots. With Quick Contour, you can create personalized HD fishing maps onscreen instantly with 1-foot contours. These are your maps, so you own them and can tailor them to suit your needs. Keep the data to yourself, or share it with the Quickdraw Community on Garmin Connect. If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturers GPS product or on a Garmin handheld device it is easy to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter via industry-standard GPX software formatting. A single microSD card slot provides expandable memory for accessory map purchases, such as LakeVu HD, LakeVu HD Ultra with Max Def Lakes, BlueChart g2 HD or BlueChart g2 Vision HD, which adds Garmin Auto Guidance (Auto Guidance is for planning purposes only and does not replace safe navigation operations) and other great features.
With Panoptix LiveVu Forward, you can see all the action on the water come to life up to 100 feet away. With LiveVu Forward, your boat can be moving or stationary, and wherever your trolling motor is pointed, you will see live images of what is happening under the water. Watch your lure as it sinks, and see its depth and movement as you retrieve it, and see it move in relationship to structures in the water. You can even see fish swimming, reacting to your bait, and when they attack, you will see and feel the hit. Once on the hook, watch the fight on your screen as it happens.
Supported SailAssist features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines and true wind data fields. Gauge displays are designed to provide important, need-to-know information at a glance, including true and apparent wind angle, true or apparent wind speed, set and drift, horizontal graphs and a data bar with customizable data fields. To help you gain a wind-maximizing competitive edge, your chartplotter features a pre-race guidance page that shows your virtual starting line along with data fields showing laylines, time to burn before the start and a race timer.
When you are off the water, it is easy to keep your echoMAP CHIRP safe and secure. You do not have to mess with plugging and unplugging wires from the unit because the cords plug directly into the mount. This allows you to quickly install and remove your echoMAP CHIRP from power and the mount.
