Default Garmin's NEW thru hull CHIRP Down Vu / Side Vu Transducers for the GCV 10 !

The testing is complete ( and VERY successful )..and the new Garmin thru hull transducers should shortly be available from all your favorite retailers.
One thing to note about these new units...they can be used with or without the fairing.
On smaller boats such as a 17' Bay boat...mounting no problem.

Also..these can be used on both metal and glass boats alike.

A new configuration of the GCV 10 will now be offered that does not include any transducer so the end user can pair it with the transducer selection of their choice.

So these are more for downvu/sidevu and less for finding soft targets correct? Are they chirp for fishfinding?

Correct....if you have CHIRP MFD is is still best to have a 2D style CHIRP transducer to locate soft targets.

The GCV 10 is a CHIRP system and will show soft targets but it is not the primary function...just a side issue due to the high quality of the system.

They should have made it the same shape as the b260. You will have to re glass to be able to install it like most in pocket mounts.

I am surprised it is only for 5 degree or less of dead rise?

I see that, either Gil updated and fixed it, or I misread it!

OK, so I have been waiting to see what this was all about. It looks like I would have to have 3 different holes in the bottom of my boat(21 degree deadrise) to have this and a through hull CHIRP to go along with it. Maybe I should just look at putting the transom mount in place of the old P66 instead of this unit. Is there a expectation of major quality improvements on this unit compared to it's transom mount sibling?

Any chance of Garmin having some images of this unit installed?(or something similar)?

I would assume the elements are all the same. So similar performance. The transom mount should work very well for you in place of the P66.

That is what the single unit is listed as correct...good eye.
But...
The fairing can be cut to accommodate a higher deadrise than 5 degrees ..but not too great.. as the keel may shadow the side view....the same issue as with the Simrad single side scan LSS-2 transducer unit.

Keel mount should be no problem...it can be mounted without the fairing for some installs.

And the fairing unit is just over 11" long and a tad wider than 3"




This is the unit less the fairing...this is 8" long x 1.5" wide.

is it really sensible to put more stainless steel in the water? At least for salt water you will need to monitor carefully and add anodes to the hull close to the transducer?

Would a bronze version not be better in most cases?

Not a problem...These Garmin units use SAE 316 marine grade stainless.....and are passivated .....just like all the Airmar stainless transducers.
This grade has an excellent history of use in the marine industry.

Default Garmin Sideview issues

Only problem I have been having with my transom mount unit is that to the starboard all is good but to the port side beam is blocked a little from my outdrive unit. I have the transducer mounted to the starboard side of the transom. Other then that I LOVE the sideview. I'm running a model EchoMap 74sv

You do not need to go to a thru hull.
Here is a way to save money and get past your outdrive issue.

You can use a 12 pin Y cable 010-12225-00 to add a second transdcuer to the port side.

If one is running the GCV10 the you add a second GT30 transducer.
If one is running an echo MAP or xsv with a GT51 then you add a GT41 on the port.
