These 12” Garmin displays are more powerful and more beautiful than ever. The super sleek design has an upgraded display that provides the sharpest view with the most connectivity. After some initial testing and field installs with this product, it was easy to see that the built-in sonar capabilities are excellent. The sounder includes built-in ultra-definition SideVu and ClearVu scanning sonars with vibrant colour palettes to differentiate fish from structures. It supports 1 kW CHIRP and can pair with Panoptix.
Garmin has done an excellent job at sharing information like maps, user data, radar and IP cameras across the Garmin marine network. It allows you to use NMEA 2000 and 0183 networks to connect to autopilots weather, Fusion audio system, media, VHF, and AIS on one screen. It even incorporates JI939 connectivity to talk to even more types of engines, including select Yamaha engines.
