Default Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Announcements

I know that many of you are looking forward to see just what new gear is announced at the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show, I know that I am. Its simply amazing that they can continue to advance and wow us with new gear and parts for our boats and boating. Keep checking back here to see the latest in announcements.


Garmin Striker NEW
Garmin Quickdraw



Start Creating Your Own Maps
Quickdraw Contours software is included on the echoMAP™ CHIRP combo series. It’s also available as a free software download for echoMAP series, GPSMAP® 7400/7600 chartplotter series and GPSMAP 8000/5x7/7x1/8x0/10x0 series.

Improve Your Saltwater Maps
Many harbors and marinas have no map detail. With Quickdraw Contours, you can create maps that show you depth contours clearly labeled on the screen. You also can improve existing maps that show locations of underwater mountains, drop offs, crevices or wrecks.

Now you can instantly create HD fishing maps on screen with 1-foot contours of nearly any body of water. You don’t have to send anything in and wait — results appear instantly on your compatible Garmin chartplotter screen. More importantly, these are your maps. Share them if you wish, or keep for yourself. You own them.

The free, easy-to-use Quickdraw Contours software requires no special surveying expertise. All you do is fish while it creates maps. Use with any Garmin Panoptix™ transducer, any HD-ID™ sonar, any CHIRP-enabled, Garmin DownVü™ transducer or NMEA 2000®-compatible depth transducer. If more than 1 sonar device is connected on board, the most capable sonar device will automatically be chosen. The better the quality of transducer used, the more detailed the map content can be. Using Panoptix, you should be able to record about 1,500 hours on a 2 GB card. Assuming a vessel speed of approximately 10 mph, that’s about 100,000 acres. It is amazing what you can achieve with a Panoptix transducer.

Map data can be captured on any SD card, including Garmin LakeVü™ HD Ultra maps, BlueChart® g2 charts or BlueChart® g2 Vision® charts.

Panoptix on the left GT51 on the right. Quickdraw sounds like a cool feature but you won't draw anything useful with panoptix.

From what I read on Garmin's website, the Panoptix transducer will provide the most and best detail for QuickDraw.

I see that the Panoptix picture reflects RealVu 3D mode. Have you tried running Panoptix in the LiveVu mode?

So you are saying that the useless image I get using RealVu 3D mode is normal? The LiveVu is to blurry to make anything out.

Not saying that at all. I've just found it's easier for some to interpret LiveVu. Based on your picture, have you tried adjusting your gain up on RealVu?

I suspect flat calm water and a particular speed have a lot to do with the quality of the maps you draw. Gil? Abbor? BOE?

and in my mind..if it is not a real high quality product..the should have delayed the release date until it was improved..most guys haven't even up graded to chirp yet. Poor market strategy in my mind

To answer an number of questions 25mph and under is what is recommend. After the boat speed goes over 25mph the green circle will turn yellow to indicate that it has passed the optimum performance. As long as you have bottom lock it will continue to record. Calmer conditions will provide better results. User controllable offsets for depth if you are recording at different tidal levels.

Panoptix does give the best results because it is a multi beam transducer. It instantly saves to the SD card for immediate results. Everything is free. Garmin is working on a open source sharing site so the future if the customer wants to share data. No exact time table. You can also do different levels of shading for different depths. It has a lot of cool features.

It will be released in the January software update

this software has been around for quite some time. commercial vessels run cm3 software that does the same thing. its killer in the bahamas where the charts are off quite a bit.
