Garmin PanoptixGarmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), has announced the Panoptix™ PS22-TR, its newest Panoptix transducer with LiveVü Forward and LiveVü Down that offers a narrow 20-degree beam angle for crisp, improved resolution and clear images of what’s all around and below the boat – in real time and even while stationary.

Paired with a compatible Garmin GPSMAP® or echoMAP® CHIRP chartplotter, Panoptix delivers a whole new perspective to fishing that lets anglers watch the movement of fish and the reactions to their bait, up to 100 feet away.
Designed for trolling motor installation, the PS22-TR is the latest addition to the popular Panoptix product line, which now includes seven models with varying installation options for inland and offshore application.

“Garmin’s Panoptix all-seeing sonar technology continues to change the way people fish,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “It’s the only sonar of its kind that gives anglers the ability to see all around their boat in real time, and we’re excited to expand this unique capability to even more inland and near-shore fishermen with the introduction of the PS22-TR that provides two LiveVü modes in one transducer.”

With a Panoptix PS22-TR on board, fishermen can see real-time sonar imagery at video-like speed using the view of their choice – forward or down – and thanks to its simple design, it’s easy to change mounting configurations between the two. By providing both LiveVü scanning views, anglers have the ability to tailor the PS22-TR to best fit how they fish. Unlike traditional or scanning sonar that only provides historical data of what’s been passed over, LiveVü Forward shows an image of fish swimming and moving toward or away from the boat and LiveVü Down shows moving sonar images below the boat. The PS22-TR’s 20-degree narrow beam angle allows users to pinpoint fish and structure so they know exactly where to cast.

The Garmin Panoptix PS22-TR LiveVü Forward and LiveVü Down trolling motor transducer is expected to be available in the third quarter for $999.99 USD. Mounting hardware is included to install the PS22-TR on the shaft or barrel of a trolling motor. It’s compatible with select echoMAP CHIRP 7- and 9-inch models, as well as the GPSMAP 8400/8600, GPSMAP 7400/7600, and the GPSMAP 7x2, 9x2, 10x2 and 12x2 series chartplotters.

Davis Carbon Fiber Wind Vanes

 

 

Whether learning to sail in an Optimist, perfecting technique in a Laser or taking line honors in the latest sportboat, the ability to visualize apparent wind angle and read the shifts is critical to sailing well. Traditional wind indicators tend to be fragile and easily bent or broken. Davis Instruments introduces Blacksmith Wind Vanes, made from super lightweight 3D carbon fiber and duraluminum to withstand the rigors of hard racing. For Opti sailors, an equally durable, carbon-free class legal version is offered. READ MORE
