Garmin® Panoptix™ Now Available for Thru-Hull Installation

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced that its popular Panoptix all-seeing sonar technology is now
available with a thru-hull mounting installation, an ideal sonar
solution for coastal fishermen with larger boats. 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

“Panoptix is a game changer for inland and offshore anglers alike,” said
Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “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’s below the boat, even while stationary. With a PS60, fishermen can
utilize three remarkable views: LiveVü Down, RealVü 3D Down, or RealVü
3D Historical.

  • LiveVü Down provides real-time moving sonar images below the boat.
    With LiveVü Down, see small baitfish and large target fish swimming
    around and pinpoint their distance left or right, and their depth.
  • RealVü 3D Down digitally scans the area below the boat from front to
    back and side to side. 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 gives the user 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 color in three

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.

The Garmin Panoptix PS60 thru-hull transducer will be available in
November with a retail price of $3,999.99. 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
