Now Compatible with GCV10 Sonar Get crystal clear images below and to the sides of your boat. It works by sending a continuous sweep of frequencies ranging from low to high that are interpreted individually upon return versus one frequency sent by standard sonars. The result is an unsurpassed, ultra-clear and high-resolution image. Utilizing a 12-pin DownVu/SideVu transducer (20 ft. cable) with a fast temperature sensor, enhanced target separation, a transmit frequency of 455/800kHz and a transmit power of 500 W per element, no fish are safe. Maximum depths include 750 ft. with DownVu and 500 ft. left and right with the SideVu feature. The GCV 10 also has the ability to expand with 3 network ports provided for advanced networking for multiple units.
Adding to the capability of the GPSMAP 7400, 7600, and 8000 series these plotters can control and stream video from the VIRB X/XE camera. You can now connect up to 5 VIRB X/XE cameras at one time. The screen of the chartplotter can be split to view up to four of the cameras at once, while each camera can be named for easy identification. Not only can you stream video but you actually gain control of each camera and its functions. G-Metrix data can be sent through a NMEA 2000 network and overlaid on the screen using the VIRB X/XE camera. Record video or take snapshots using your VIRB X/XE and with the Garmin Helm App you can save, share and view on the screen of your marine device.
