The Garmin Echomap Ultra is one of the newest fish finders from Garmin. It is packed full of features that make it one of the best fish finders on the market! It comes in a 10″ and 12” keyed-assist touchscreen. In the box, you will also find an all-in-one transducer that is ready for CHIRP, traditional and Ultra High-Definition, ClearVü and SideVü scanning capabilities. It also allows you to share sonar, waypoints and routes with other ECHOMAP Ultra 10” and 12” units as well as ECHOMAP Plus 7” and 9” units. The Echomap Ultra has a built-in Quickdraw Contours, which is mapping software that instantly creates personalized fishing maps on-screen with 1’ contours as you fish.
The Echomap Ultra that grows with you
With the built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity, you can pair with the free ActiveCaptain® app. NMEA 2000® connectivity and support for heading sensors, autopilots, digital switching, FUSION-Link™ audio system, and more. But there is more! No need for the “black box” anymore, the Echomap Ultra has built-in support for the full line of Panoptix™ sonars and the Panoptix LiveScope™.
You can even run the Garmin Force Trolling Motor with the Echomap Ultra! Now following routes, heading to waypoints or even something as simple as turning the boat or hitting spot lock can be done from the captain’s chair in your boat!
It is amazing to see how far fishfinders have come. Gone are the days of struggling to interpret black and oddly green screens and paper maps that could blow out of the boat. At the Spring Fishing and Boat show we talked with Dave Chong about the new units. Dave gives us a rundown of the features of the all-new Garmin Echomap Ultra. We really believe it is one of the best values on the market. Hard to believe it is a high-performance unit!
