Garmin® introduces Panoptix Ice Bundle with new ice fishing transducer, a hard water solution with revolutionary sonar capabilities

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced its first chartplotter and transducer bundle with Panoptix
all-seeing sonar technology designed specifically for ice fishing.
Anglers can now benefit from the game-changing Garmin Panoptix
technology that shows real-time moving images up to 100 feet to locate
fish in any direction below the ice. Equipped with everything needed for
hard water fishing, the Panoptix Ice Bundle includes an echoMAP™ CHIRP
73cv chartplotter, a Panoptix PS22-TR transducer with LiveVü Forward and
LiveVü Down capabilities, the new GTH10HN-IF ice fishing transducer,
Panoptix ice fishing pole mount, and so much more – all in a convenient,
glove-friendly portable bag.

“With the Panoptix Ice Bundle, fishermen will be able to see under the
ice in ways they never have before so they can pinpoint schools of fish
faster, drill fewer holes, and spend more time on what’s important –
catching fish,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global
consumer sales. “We’re proud to offer a versatile hard water solution
that will not only transform the way anglers fish on the ice, but one
that can be used when the ice thaws, too.”

Paired with an echoMAP CHIRP 73cv chartplotter, the Panoptix Ice Bundle
includes two transducers and offers three types of sonar views for use
on the ice: a GTH10HN-IF ice fishing transducer with Garmin CHIRP
traditional sonar that offers a narrow beam angle (8 to 16 degrees) for
crystal-clear images with remarkable target separation and jig
detection, and a PS22-TR that provides both Panoptix scanning views –
LiveVü Forward and LiveVü Down – to see what’s happening up to 100 feet
horizontally around and below the ice. 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 hole, and LiveVü Down shows moving sonar images below the

Preloaded with industry-leading LakeVü HD maps that cover more than
17,000 U.S. lakes, the echoMAP CHIRP 73cv includes more than 13,000 HD
lakes with 1-foot contours shoreline to shoreline – two times more than
the competition. Like all Garmin chartplotters, the echoMAP CHIRP 73cv
is known for its easy-to-use interface that allows for customized
combination screens, so anglers can easily access flasher, map, Panoptix
views and more.

The Panoptix Ice Bundle includes a swivel pole mount for the Panoptix
transducer, a 12Ah battery with charger, power cable, and foam float.
Available in the fourth quarter, the bundle will retail for $1799.99.
The GT10HN-IF ice fishing transducer will also be available separately
for $169.99. For existing echoMAP customers, a portable ice fishing kit
that includes a GT10HN-IF will also be available for $399.99. For more
