Does anyone actually believe Garmin's Max Depth listings for the GT51M-TM?

Seems pretty optimistic to me for good to excellent returns.

GT51M
DownVü: 1,000 ft
SideVü: 750 ft
Those depths listed for Down Vu and Side Vu are certainly not for viewing structure...no way.
That would only be to possibly read bottom..and with no detail.
It seems these days all the different manufactures like to post maximum depth readings for their units that do not relate to real world experience.

200' 300' would be in the maximum comfort zone for the GT51 viewing structure.
The G50 will have much better detail but has less depth capability.......the GT51 a bit more depth but will not have as good of detail.



GCV 10 and the GT30...from a THT members post last year of the bridge on lake Murray.

300' is really deep to view good structure with any detail. Should be a winner if it'll do that for sure!

Was looking for Cable Length info today and it was not readily available, not even a 'what's in the box'. Perfect timing, thanks Gil!

Now that Garmin has the transducers shipping and the xsv units knocking on the shipping dept door, I'm honestly a bit miffed as to why there haven't been any images released. They would quell any doubts as to what they really can do.

Agreed....

Here is the link to screen shots from last years Screen Shot contest....several of the shots were by THT members a one of the winners is a THT memeber.

Gil

So how deep do you think the GT50 should reliably read the contours of the bottom? Not necessarily structure but just images/depth? How about at say 30 mph?

Thanks.

There are both mounting styles.

The GT20 , GT40 is a TM only.

The GT21, GT 30, GT41, GT50, GT51 are available in transom, single thru hull and as a thru hull pair.

If the area of mounting is less than 5 degree san single thu hull can be used.



And if the area of mounting is a flat ares of 0 deadrise just the element can be used instead of the fairing if one liked to do so.

If the are of mounting is greater than 5 degree than a pair is required.

So Gil, the GT50 is 300w. vs 600w for the GT51 traditional? Interesting...

The GT50- is for shallower water use....300 watts CHIRP is more than enough.
Very similar to the TM150/B150M

Here's a question I haven't heard asked.

Seems to me that using a pair of Gt51's because you have a deep V hull seems to be under-utilizing that 2nd transducer in that it's ONLY being used for Port Side Vu... Seems to have many "elements" being unused OR am I wrong in thinking that? Does the "pair" 2nd ducer ONLY come prepared to provide the "missing" side vu piece of the pie?
Or are the exact units and the 2nd ducer is as capable as the first? (Might be employed elsewhere later?)

Both units of the pair have the same side imaging capability and act independently.....one for port and the other starboard...with one unit only employing the down imaging.
Each unit of the pair has the same exact quality Side Vu element construction.
No loss .
