It’s time you started fishing with the power of CHIRP sonar. The easy-to-install, easy-to-use 5″ echoMAP CHIRP 55cv is compatible with optional transducers for high wide CHIRP sonar and Garmin CHIRP DownVü, the clearest scanning sonar on the water. It includes Quickdraw Contours software to instantly create your very own HD maps with 30 centimetre contours as you fish. Internal 5 Hz GPS updates position and heading 5 times per second. Cords plug directly into the mount, allowing you to quickly install and remove your device from power and mount. Transom and trolling motor mounts included.
The Garmin CHIRP Difference – The built-in sonar capabilities of echoMAP 55dv include CHIRP sonar, the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public. CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. It also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat’s position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software.
Clearest Scanning Sonar on the Water – Garmin DownVü scanning sonar give you a nearly photographic image down to 225 metres¹ below your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. Traditional Garmin HD-ID™ sonar and DownVü scanning sonar are combined into 1 transducer. Also provides HD-ID support for Minn Kota and MotorGuide trolling motors with integrated transducers.
Preloaded with Garmin’s highly detailed BlueChart G2 mapping – Includes UK, Ireland and North West mainland Europe coast maps
Take Your echoMAP with You – When you’re off the water, it’s easy to keep your echoMAP safe and secure. You don’t have to mess with plugging and unplugging wires from the unit because the cables plug directly into the mount. This allows you to quickly install and remove your echoMAP from power and the mount.
Upgrade with the Best Garmin Maps on the Water – A single microSD™ card slot provides expandable memory for accessory map purchases such as BlueChart® g2 or BlueChart® g2 Vision®.
Enhanced Auto Guidance – Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto Guidance technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a safe, virtual pathway on the display that helps you avoid low bridges, shallow water and other charted obstructions en route. Adjust the calculated Auto Guidance pathway by inserting “via” points at interim stops or landmarks along your desired route. Easily review hazard points along the calculated path. You can also save your plotted Auto Guidance paths for future navigation by backing them up on an SD™ card with your BlueChart g2 Vision².
GPX Waypoints Transfer – Transfer waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturer’s GPS product – or on a Garmin handheld device – to your new Garmin chartplotter, via industry-standard GPX software formatting.
