GRAHAMS THOUGHTS...

The 2018 ECHOMAP Plus range builds upon the previous generation of echoMAP CHIRP in a  few ways. The biggest of these is the inclusion of touchscreens in the 7″and 9″ models, and wireless connectivity from the 65cv up which allows use of Garmin’s ActiveCapain system and downloading QuickDraw Contours data.

The ECHOMAP Plus 65cv replaces the previous echoMAP CHIRP 55cv with a bigger screen for the same price which is a bonus if you struggle with the smaller screens.

The Garmin CHIRP Difference

The built-in sonar capabilities of ECHOMAP Plus 65cv 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, wide image of what passes below your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. Garmin CHIRP traditional sonar and ClearVü scanning sonar are combined into 1 transducer.

When you’re off the water, it’s easy to keep your ECHOMAP Plus combo safe and secure. You don’t 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 Plus from power and the mount.
