Garmin Panoptix now available for thru-hull installation

Garmin’s game-changing Panoptix all-seeing sonar technology is now available with a thru-hull transducer for simple installation on larger fibreglass boats.

Expanding the Panoptix transducer family, joining the transom mount (PS30) and electric motor mount (PS31) transducers, the PS60 transducer provides a look at what’s swimming below the boat in any direction using three remarkable views – LiveVü Down, RealVü 3D Down or RealVü 3D Historical.

LiveVü Down provides real-time moving sonar images to reveal small baitfish and large target fish swimming around, as well as pinpoint their distance left or right and their depth.

RealVü 3D Down scans the area below the boat from bow to stern and port to starboard. A full 3D view of the area under the boat is constructed, showing bottom contour changes, fish and structure – even while stationary.

RealVü 3D Historical delivers a wealth of sonar data. It scrolls through the data as the boat moves to show the history of entire water columns – from the bottom to the surface and all of the fish in between. Bottom contours and fish pop in vivid colour in 3D.

For thru-hull installation, the Panoptix PS60 includes a stainless steel stem, fairing block, and mounting hardware for a boat with a deadrise between zero and 25 degrees. It’s equipped with an internal Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) sensor that constantly adjusts sonar beams to compensate for boat motion.

Compatible with Garmin’s GPSMAP 8000 series, GPSMAP 7400 series, GPSMAP 751, 820 and 1020 series.
