With the PS60 Panoptix thru-hull down transducer, fishermen can see real-time moving sonar images below the boat. The PS60 is the newest member of the Panoptix transducer family, which also includes transom and trolling motor-mount options.  

Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales, says, “Panoptix is a game changer for inland and offshore anglers alike. Unlike traditional or scanning sonar that only shows the history of what you’ve passed over, Panoptix allows you to see real-time images under your boat, including your lure and the fish attacking it. We’re excited to offer this revolutionary technology with a thru-hull installation option, making it available to a broader range of anglers.”  

This unique and innovative sonar technology provides a live view of what is below the boat, even while stationary. With a PS60, fishermen can utilise three remarkable views: LiveVü Down, RealVü 3D Down, or RealVü 3D Historical.

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 is equipped with an internal Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) sensor that constantly adjusts sonar beams to compensate for boat motion.

The Garmin Panoptix PS60 thru-hull transducer is available now with a retail price of £3079.99. All of the Panoptix transducers are compatible with the Garmin GPSMAP 7400/7600 series, GPSMAP 8000/8500 series and GPSMAP 7×1, 8×0, and 10×0 series chartplotters.
