In The Box
It’s time you started fishing with the power of CHIRP sonar. The easy-to-install, easy-to-use 4.3-inch echoMAP CHIRP 45cv chartplotter includes transducer for high wide CHIRP sonar and Garmin CHIRP ClearVü for clear scanning sonar images. It includes Quickdraw Contours software to instantly create your very own HD maps with 1-foot contours as you fish. Internal 5 Hz GPS updates position and heading 5 times per second. Cords plug directly into the mount, allowing you to quickly install and remove your device from power and mount. Transom and trolling motor mounts included.
The built-in sonar capabilities of echoMAP CHIRP 45cv include CHIRP sonar, the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public. CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. It also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat's position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software. Use the user data sharing cable to share waypoints and routes between multiple devices.
Garmin ClearVü scanning sonar gives you a nearly photographic, wide image of what passes below your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. Traditional Garmin HD-ID™ sonar and ClearVü scanning sonar are combined into 1 transducer. Also provides HD-ID support for Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motors with integrated transducers.
Instantly create personalized HD fishing maps onscreen with 1-foot contours. Tailor them to fit your needs. These are your maps — you own them. Keep the data to yourself, or share it with the Quickdraw Community on Garmin Connect™.
When you’re off the water, it’s easy to keep your echoMAP CHIRP safe and secure. You don’t have to mess with plugging and unplugging wires from the unit because the cords plug directly into the mount. This allows you to quickly install and remove your echoMAP CHIRP from power and the mount.
A single microSD™ card slot provides expandable memory for accessory map purchases such as BlueChart® g2 HD or BlueChart® g2 Vision® HD. Dynamic Lake Level and Depth Range Shading. It also provides exclusive Garmin Auto Guidance, a technology that directs you to your hot spots. Based on your boat’s specifications, Auto Guidance¹ instantly creates a visual path you can follow to avoid shallow water and other charted obstructions.
If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturer’s GPS product — or on a Garmin handheld device — it’s easy to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter via industry-standard GPX software formatting.
