The difference with Garmin CHIRP
The built-in echo sounder functions in the ECHOMAP Plus 42cv contain traditional CHIRP echo sounder, one of the most sophisticated echo sounder techniques available to the fishing and boat-intensive public. Traditional CHIRP echo sounder provides incredibly clear object separation and definition because it adds even more energy to the target than a traditional echo sounder. It also has traditional echo support for my Kota ® and MotorGuide ® troll motors with integrated sensors.
Sharp echo photos
The Garmin CHIRP ClearVü echo scanner with scanning technology gives you an almost photographic picture of what’s on the boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish.
