5” Powerhouse GPS/Sounder with built in CHIRP technology
The Garmin GPSMAP 547 xs offers a 5” ultra-bright VGA display showing your current position overlaid onto the preloaded detailed Garmin Bluechart G2 and lakes cartography. A top choice in chartplotter/ fishfinder combination units the MAP 547xs offers all the features you have come to love in previous 500 series models. With the built in High sensitivity GPS/GLONASS receiver Garmin has taken it to another level with 60% more processing power for faster panning and zoom which updates position and heading 10 times per second providing a much more fluid movement of your vessel on screen as well as drastically improving your ability to mark and maneuver to waypoints.
Built into the 547xs is a 1kW HD-ID sounder with CHIRP technology.The 547xs can read depths of up to 2,000 feet providing you with a much clearer representation of what’s below the boat. HD- ID with target tracking and CHIRP technologies provide better definition and separation of images as well as sweeping multiple frequencies (CHIRP technology) to better focus on certain fish at certain depths (CHIRP transducer required and sold separately) Another added feature to the 547xs is sonar recording, which will record the timing of the sonar return along with your boats position and will save depth and position information. Great for scrolling back and reviewing sonar returns and creating waypoints.
Garmin’s GPSMAP 547xs now offers 5,000 waypoints and 50,000 points with 10 saved tracks, wireless connectivity for use with Garmin BlueChart mobile app, Fusion media system compatibility for full control of your media system right from your chartplotter screen(Available Fall 2013) as well as Dual MicroSD card slots giving you the option to expand with more detailed information from Garmin’s extensive line of G2 Vision charts. With Garmin's Helm you can view and control the 547 with your Apple iPhone, iPad or Android v4.03 or later.
