With one Panoptix Forward transducer, you can actually see the bottom,
structure and fish swimming around in front of your boat in real time; even
while stationary. You get 2 impressive views: LiveVü Forward and RealVü 3-D
Updates the entire view with a single ping
and has a more "live video" look, providing real-time moving sonar
images. You can see fish swimming toward or away from the boat. You
can see small baitfish and large target fish swimming around, even
your lure as you reel it in.
REALVÜ 3-D FORWARD
Updates a slice of the 3-D volume with
each ping and take 1 to 4 seconds to update the entire volume. It
shows the bottom and fish in the water column coming toward the boat.
It sweeps forward, and the history on screen is only one sweep.
All-seeing is Believing
Garmin is the first to bring Panoptix sonar imaging to your boat. Panoptix
all-seeing sonar is unlike anything youve ever seen on the water. It gives you
the ability to see all around your boat in real-time. You can see fish in the
water column in 3-D. You can also see your bait cast into the water and watch it
as you reel it in. You can see fish swimming in front of or below your boat. You
can even see them chase your lure. But to truly appreciate Panoptix, you have to
see it. Transducer trolling motor and transom mounting kit included¹.
¹The forward-facing transom transducer should be
mounted in a location that is out of the water at speeds over 32 km/h (20 mph).
If located below the water line, cruising speeds over 40 km/h (25mph) should be
avoided. The transducer can generate strain and water spray at higher speeds and
can cause the transducer element to rotate in the mount. Mount the transducer to
a secure (robust) area of the boat. Consider the placement to avoid damage to
boat. If you have any doubts, contact a professional marine installer.

depth information to the connected chartplotter. If this information is desired,
a separate transducer with those capabilities is required.
