With one Panoptix Forward Transducer, you can actually see the bottom, structure, and fish swimming around in front of your boat - in real time and even while stationary. You get 2 impressive views: LiveVü Forward and RealVü 3D Forward.
Updates the entire view with a single ping and has a more "live video" look, providing real-time moving sonar images. You can see fish swimming toward or away from the boat. You can see small baitfish, large target fish swimming around, and even your lure as you reel it in.
RealVü 3D Forward
Updates a slice of the 3D volume with each ping and takes 1 to 4 seconds to update the entire volume. Shows the bottom and fish in the water column coming toward the boat. It sweeps forward, and the history on-screen is only one sweep.
All-Seeing Is Believing
Garmin is the first to bring Panoptix sonar imaging to your boat. Panoptix all-seeing sonar is unlike anything you've ever seen on the water. It gives you the ability to see all around your boat in real-time. You can see fish in the water column in 3D. You can see fish swimming in front of or below your boat and can even see them chase your lure. But to truly appreciate Panoptix, you have to see it.
Note: The forward-facing transom transducer should be mounted in a location that is out of the water at speeds over 20 mph. If located below the water line, cruising speeds over 25 mph should be avoided. The transducer can generate strain and water spray at higher speeds and can cause the transducer element to rotate in the mount. Mount the transducer to a secure area of the boat. Consider the placement to avoid damage to boat. If you have any doubts, contact a professional marine installer.
