Wow that is something for sure. Dual channel built in CHIRP plus Side and DownVu.

The big changes here beside full range of screen size in touch xsv units: 7 ", 8", 10" and 12" screens.

All have the built in Dual Band CHIRP sonar and the built in CHIRP Side/DownVu for the xsv series.


Plus Garmin has many new transducers for all the new units.

The 2 that I am excited about are the GT50M and GT51M..both in transom and thru hull.

1) Garmin GT50M-TM – Transom Mount DownVü/SideVü 500 W (CHIRP 455/800 kHz) Traditional 300 W (Mid-band CHIRP 80-160 kHz)
2) GT51M-TM – Transom Mount DownVü/SideVü 500 W (CHIRP 260/455 kHz) Traditional 600 W (Mid-band CHIRP 80-160 kHz)

3) Garmin GT50M-THP – Stainless Steel Thru-Hull Pair DownVü/SideVü 500 W (CHIRP 455/800 kHz) Traditional 300 W (Mid-band CHIRP 80-160 kHz)

4) Garmin GT51M-TH – Stainless Steel Thru-Hull DownVü/SideVü 500 W (CHIRP 260/455 kHz) Traditional 600 W (Mid-band CHIRP 80-160 kHz)
The GT51M can read bottom with the Down Vu at 1000'..good structure at 400'.




NOTICE THE NEW 4 WAY SCREEN

..............................

Garmin News
2015 Marine product line.

Offered in sonar and non-sonar versions, the new GPSMAP 7400/7600 series of chartplotters is available with wide 7, 8, 10 or 12-inch touchscreens. They are fully networkable, have a 10Hz GPS and are available with preloaded maps including both BlueChart g2 and LakeVü HD. With anglers of all types in mind, the GPSMAP 7400xsv and 7600xsv series features integrated premium sonar technology, boasting traditional HD-ID sonar, true dual 1kW CHIRP sonar, CHIRP DownVü and SideVü to provide the clearest scanning sonar available on the water.

Designed for serious sport fishermen, the GSD 25 is a remote network solution that provides outstanding fishfinding and bottom tracking capabilities. Incorporating DownVü and SideVü, the clearest scanning sonar on the water, with true, dual 1kW CHIRP, the GSD 25 helps provide crystal clear image with excellent target separation and location - all the way down to 5,000 feet! - without the need for multiple black boxes.

The new line of echoMAP combo chartplotters integrates scanning sonar without the need for an EchoMAP 94sv (1)
additional sounder black box. Along with a user-friendly interface and built-in cartography, the new echoMAP series is available in a 4, 5, 7 or 9-inch color display and accommodates boaters and anglers of all types. All units have built-in traditional and DownVü scanning sonar and the 7 and 9-inch products also integrate built-in SideVü scanning sonar.

Our new line of high-definition GMR 424, 624/626 and 1224/1226 xHD2 open-array radars offer brand new features and capabilities that provide better precision, targeting and performance while transmitting at 4, 6 and 12kW respectively. New settings include Bird Mode that finds flocks at the water's surface and dual radar support which gives the boater the capability to run dual radars or domes on board.
The GHP Reactor Autopilot Series provides unprecedented performance by integrating a new, solid-state 9axis attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) that yields less heading error and course deviation, reduced rudder movement, and lower power consumption, thus providing a smoother ride and overall better experience for all on-board.

Supporting both the newest lines of Garmin GPSMAP and echoMAP, the new array of thru-hull and transom-mounted scanning transducers is a valuable addition to any vessel. The new GT21/40/41 series complements the newest echoMAP products, while the GT50/51 is compatible with the new echoMAP as well as the GPSMAP 7400/7600 series. These new transducers provide our crystal clear DownVü and SideVü scanning technology and are available in a variety of mounting options and price points for mariners of all types.

Looks like it will fit in the same hole as a 7612..... Compatible with GSD and GCV units. Looks like a drop in replacement for the 7612.

Can any of the dealers or other insiders confirm that 74XXxsv models have built-in dual channel 2D CHIRP?

In the text it's wirtten dual CHIRP, while in the spec table it's not mentioned.

The built-in sonar capabilities of the GPSMAP 7412xsv include 1 kW dual CHIRP sonar, the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public. Dual CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than CHIRP. It gives you the ability to show low/high, med/high or low/med on the screen at the same time, enhancing your ability to distinguish between game fish and balls of bait fish. It also includes both CHIRP DownVü and CHIRP SideVü scanning sonar that provide nearly photographic sonar images of fish and structure that passes below and to the sides of your boat. Garmin DownVü and SideVü provide the clearest scanning sonar images on the water.

Very nice package indeed. Garmin has a winner. Price parity with the Simrad units, with a dual channel CHIRP built in. Seems it will support the 1kW dual channel transducers, but not the big boys, that will still need the GSD26. They have exceeded my expectations for what I assumed they would announce.

I wonder if there are any limitation, like displaying only one CHIRP channel at a time, or limiting Side Vu when using CHIRP. I would assume not, and they wouldn't be deal breakers for me.

So, to clarify, these units slot in between the 8000 series and the xs series? Dual band chirp, touchscreen just like the 8000 series, but built in chirp like the xs series. So you don't need the gsd26 box nor do you need the gv10 or whatever the side/down vü add on is?

Not like the xs..that is only single band.

These have dual band built in CHIRP...correct ....similar to the GSD26.
In fact all the xsv units can use the GSD-26 if one already has it installed.

And correct it has the Down Vu/Side Vu also built in.

Correct. My point is that it contains various features of the units above and below it. It has built in chirp like the xs series, but it has dual band chirp like the 8000 series/gsd 26. So it is like the xs but also like the gsd.

Is the only reason someone would now buy a 8000 with gsd26 to get a slight bump in output power? 600 vs 1kw? Which should be a negligible difference since chirp isn't exactly measured in traditional power terms, right?

The spec differences between the built in sonar and the GSD26 is the ability to drive the larger 2kW+ transducers. There might be other differences that we don't know yet. One implementation to support dual channel transducers would be to internally switch between the two using a single channel CHIRP transceiver. (I would have implemented this way on the XS series, and Navico Sonarhub...) Until we get our hands on a unit, hard to say what Garmin is doing.

It says compatible with GCV-10, but not sure why you would use one unless the built in version is not their CHIRP implementation of Side Vu (which I doubt).

If you want to run the big 16 and 25 element Airmar transducers, you would need the GSD26. But this unit also supports the GSD26, so you could still connect GSD26 to the 76xx series. Until more details come out, it is hard to say how the 8xxx series would still be relevant.

For anyone looking at targets (fish) in less than 1000' and using any 8 element CHIRP dual band transducer....these xsv series units are going to be very high on ones look at list.

And now there is greater flexibility for dual stations etc.

If someone is using a GSD-26 already and needs to have an upper station..they can use the 7" xsv it is fully networkable with the 8000 units.

What about all the new transducers? DownVu \SideVu with bulit in 300w CHIRP.

Which transducer is that?

they have a new fleet of Thru hulls, set up in all kinds of combinations. You can get an ALL IN ONE downVu\SideVu\600w Mid Chirp, as well as a bunch of other options.

There are also new echomap models, xHD2 open array radar, and a new GSD 25 sonar module on the website for 2015.
