Default Garmin GT51 sidevü screenshots

Garmin is saying that GT51 has ability to scan 750 feet depth max! if you think that other brands can only scan 150 feet depth max, I can say it is a revolution! So I wonder if anyone saw that performance in real life experience with this transducer. I ll be happy if you guys send the max depth screenshots of GT51 under this title that you have experienced.

The others claim 600 feet or 500 feet etc. So I wouldn't expect 750.

do you mean others brands by saying other ? By the way I do not mean the sidevü range but the depth it can work!

Raymarine 900' = it is down vision, it is like down vü on garmin. Garmin has 1000' down imaging capacity.
But it is not side scanning technology!

lowrance 600' = they are talking about range. 300' left 300' right. This is not depth.

Tom, these screen shots are they taken by you or a customer, or are they from Garmin?

I was talking about lowrance, you can check from here;

http://www.lowrance.com/en-US/Produc...-HD-en-us.aspx

I think it is 600' left 600' right. But they are talking about range.

Garmin have lots of transducers. I think because of that they write the informations about depth to page of transducers. Because each of them different cabability. here is GT51;

I've been told (from some engineers) that these "all-in-one" transducers with the one element, aren't going to be as clear (on the side vu) as the single transducer with the 3 elements. And so far from what I've seen when running the few that I have and seeing some of the screenshots I can see it's true. But maybe more tuning is needed. I would still go with separate transducers myself.

The GT50 and GT51 I believe have 4 elements. 1 left, 1 right, 1 down, and 1 2D.

The engineers that I talked to, said that the Side Vu and Down Vu was one element unlike their other Side Vu transducers. I know the Lowrance and Humminbird transducers have 3. Again just what I was told, if anyone has a spare one they want to send me I'll be more than happy to open it up or xray it!
