Default Chirp DownVision and SideVision Questions?

Chirp DownView and SideView Questions?

I just upgraded to the Raymarine e125 W/ Chirp DownVision and DownVision on my offshore…

I also have the Lowrance HDS 7 Gen2 Touch on my Inshore
Both have Side and Down vision

I was wondering if any of the, Furuno, Garmin or Simrad units have Chirp DownVision with SideVision?

Furuno does not have Down/Side vision at all.


The Garmin GCV 10 is a true CHIRP side and DownVu.

Here is an earlier article on Panbo:

Thanks I just looked at it, it says that the CHIRP range is around 200ft depending on conditions...

Raymarine says SideVision is 600 foot.... Just wondering if you have played with it yet? and if it will get 200 foot?

Also it looks like furuno is coming out with one.

The Furuno DFF1-UHD is an excellent CHIRP unit...but not a Side/Down scan...2 d CHIRP sonar only.
It has been out for a good time now.

The GCV 10 can go out to 400'-500' plus on each side....
I have have seen it at 350' 450' depths plus.....but 200' is its depth comfort zone for quality imaging..
Bottom tracking 30 mph plus.


All the manufactures are offering excellent units for recreational users.

Simrad/lowrance, Raymarine and Hummingbird?
