Sonar – Built in to the 1040xs is Garmin’s HD-ID 1 kW sonar and DownVu with CHIRP giving you more sonar options than you thought possible. HD-ID 1kW Traditional Sonar will provide images down to 2,700 feet dependent on water conditions and transducer selected. The 600W CHIRP sonar - Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse operates a little differently by sending out multiple frequencies and returning the best image and enhances target separation based on the information received providing crystal clear photo like images of everything from fish, bait, structure, wreckage, ledges and rocks! For standard digital sonar, a seperate transducer is required.
