Garmin® expands revolutionary Panoptix sonar capabilities

PS22-TR trolling motor transducer provides two LiveVü modes

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Panoptix™ PS22-TR, its newest Panoptix transducer with
LiveVü Forward and LiveVü Down that offers a narrow 20-degree beam angle
for crisp, improved resolution and clear images of what’s all around and
below the boat – in real time and even while stationary. Paired with a
compatible Garmin GPSMAP® or echoMAP® CHIRP chartplotter, Panoptix
delivers a whole new perspective to fishing that lets anglers watch the
movement of fish and the reactions to their bait, up to 100 feet away.
Designed for trolling motor installation, the PS22-TR is the latest
addition to the popular Panoptix product line, which now includes seven
models with varying installation options for inland and offshore

“Garmin’s Panoptix all-seeing sonar technology continues to change the
way people fish,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global
consumer sales. “It’s the only sonar of its kind that gives anglers the
ability to see all around their boat in real time, and we’re excited to
expand this unique capability to even more inland and near-shore
fishermen with the introduction of the PS22-TR that provides two LiveVü
modes in one transducer.”

With a Panoptix PS22-TR on board, fishermen can see real-time sonar
imagery at video-like speed using the view of their choice – forward or
down – and thanks to its simple design, it’s easy to change mounting
configurations between the two. By providing both LiveVü scanning views,
anglers have the ability to tailor the PS22-TR to best fit how they
fish. Unlike traditional or scanning sonar that only provides historical
data of what’s been passed over, LiveVü Forward shows an image of fish
swimming and moving toward or away from the boat and LiveVü Down shows
moving sonar images below the boat. The PS22-TR’s 20-degree narrow beam
angle allows users to pinpoint fish and structure so they know exactly
where to cast.

The Garmin Panoptix PS22-TR LiveVü Forward and LiveVü Down trolling
motor transducer is expected to be available in the third quarter for
$999.99. Mounting hardware is included to install the PS22-TR on the
shaft or barrel of a trolling motor. It’s compatible with select echoMAP
CHIRP 7- and 9-inch models, as well as the GPSMAP 8400/8600, GPSMAP
7400/7600, and the GPSMAP 7×2, 9×2, 10×2 and 12×2 series chartplotters.
