OLATHE, Kan., Oct. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Garmin (NYSE: GRMN), the world's most innovative and recognized marine electronics manufacturer, today announced the ECHOMAPtm Ultra 2 chartplotter series designed with advanced features for inland and nearshore anglers. Offering a 10- or 12-inch sunlight-readable touchscreen with keyed assist, they put UHD scanning sonar, preloaded Garmin Navionics+tm mapping with an included 1-year subscription for daily updates, wireless networking capabilities and more at an angler's fingertips.
"Professional anglers and weekend warriors alike have for years relied on the ECHOMAP Ultra series to provide superior sonar and mapping with a touchscreen design that can be quickly installed and removed from the boat at the end of the day. With the addition of wireless networking, multi-band GPS and a new user interface, the new ECHOMAP Ultra 2 series is even more versatile and easier to use than before." ?Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales
Combining power and functionality, the ECHOMAP Ultra 2 series will meet the demands of today's angler with exciting new features, including:
For nearly photographic images of fish and structure, the Ultra 2 chartplotters are available bundled with a GT56UHD all-in-one transducer that provides Garmin CHIRP traditional sonar and Ultra High-Definition ClearVütm and SideVütm scanning images of what's below and to the sides of the boat. The new series also supports the full lineup of Garmin's award-winning LiveScope live-scanning sonar.
Available in two sizes, the ECHOMAP Ultra 2 106sv with a 10-inch display and ECHOMAP Ultra 2 126sv with a 12-inch display, the new series offers unparalleled mapping coverage and detail for both coastal and inland waters with built-in Garmin Navionics+. In addition to the included 1-year subscription for daily updates, Garmin Navionics+ also offers depth range shading and Auto Guidance+2 for faster route calculation speeds of suggested pathways. Anglers can also upgrade to Garmin Navionics Vision+tm premium mapping, which offers high-resolution relief shading and more. To instantly create personalized fishing maps, the series also includes built-in Quickdraw Contourstm mapping software to deliver HD maps with 1-foot contours on any body of water.
When wirelessly integrated with a Garmin Force® trolling motor, anglers can create routes, patterns and tracks for the trolling motor to follow while they fish. From the chartplotter screen, they can also control speed, check battery life and more.
Expected to be available next month, the ECHOMAP Ultra 2 chartplotters include a quick-release mount for fast and easy mobility, and they are sold with or without a GT56UHD-TM transducer. Suggested retail prices ranging from $1899.99 to $3099.99 To learn more, visit garmin.com/marine.
