Gpamap 8700 Black Box

The Black box GPSMAP 8700 allows you to integrate different technologies: fishfinder, autopilot, online services, apps, engine data and multimedia data on the console. It connects to Garmin displays or third-party touchscreen displays and is suitable for both fishermen and sailors in general.  It is possible to synchronize the chartplotters connected to the network on different consoles. The new 8700 series of Garmin Black Boxes is equipped with processors to ensure fast processing of data and images.

It integrates seamlessly with the onboard instruments thanks to the integrated Wi-Fi and ANT+ connectivity, the 4 Ethernet ports, the NMEA 2000 network, the HDMI port, the USB port, and many others.

GT24UHD-TM and GT54UHD-TM Transducers

The new GT24UHD-TM and GT54UHD-TM transducers with Chirp functions provide high definition images of the area under the boat.

  • The 800 kHz ClearVü function for structure images;
  • The SideVü function, with dual frequency at 455/1200 kHz, shows side scanning to help you find the best spots.

Panoptix LiveScope with feed-through installation
The new Panoptix LiveScope transducer with feed-through installation is the latest addition to the Panoptix range. It offers an additional mounting option for customers who do not want to use the standard version for a bracket or electric motor.
