You have to have one of the real experts explain that to you. I just spent the night in a holiday inn express so..... Maybe Semper or Boe can chime in.

How deep you fishing? Where are you fishing? Salt, Fresh? How much $ you want to spend? Would be deciding factor.

Fishing mostly in 120-400 feet, saltwater based out of Masonboro Inlet. Budget about 2k. Thanks for all the help!
Hope the continental breakfast was good.

Let me give you some information here to help with your past questions.

1) Your question:
" Does the transducer that comes with the 1040xs have the CHIRP built in? I'm looking at it now but it doesn't say it anywhere, just says its HD-ID and DownVu. "

Answer: The All in 1 one transducer is a dual traditional fish finding sonar and a traditional structure scan...this is not CHIRP.
This is an excellent transducer for general fishing in water less than 200"..this is an entry level transducer.

2) Your question:
"Then the next question is which transducers are CHIRP enabled and are compatible with the 840/1040?
Would a GCV10 resolve this?"

Ans.
Garmin has the TM150 (Transom mount)
B150, B75 B175 ( Thru the hull) CHIRP transducers for CHIRP.

The GCV 10 is a Side Vu and Down Vu and is also CHIRP technology for greater resolution.


And since you are fishing in 120' to 400' I would suggest the B175M transducer .

..................................................
Some background:

The Garmin 547xs can be used in 3 ways depending on the transducer connected.

1)Traditional sonar with a ducer such as the P66, B60 etc.
2) Traditional sonar / Downscan with the All in 1 transducer.
3) CHIRP with any of the single band CHRIP transducers.

The Garmin echoMap70s can be used in 2 ways.

1) Traditional sonar.
2) It can also use the GCV 10 for Down and Side Vu and traditional sonar.

The Garmin echoMap70dv can be use in 2 ways.

1) It ships with the All in 1 transducer...so it can can an entry level traditional sonar and downview.
2) It can use the GCV 10 DownVu and SideVu for added enhancement of down andside view.

The Garmin 741xs, 840xs and 1040 XS all have 4 different ways to be used depending on the transducer connected.

1) Traditional 600/1000 watt sonar.
2) CHIRP sonar
3) All in 1 traditional and down VU.
4) The GCV 10 can be used in combination with either traditional or CHIRP sonar.

Hey Gil,

I posted this thread back in early April about replacement options for my Garmin 188c. I was reading this post by bluewaterpirate and was curious if you thought the 547xs with the TM150 is a solid option. As I posted in my original thread, I am primarily interested in the 547xs for the size due to my dash layout.

The 547xs with a CHIRP ducer is excellent..the TM150 is the only transom mounted unit for the single band CHIRP systems and will be fine for targets under 200'

Semper - do you have any 546s' in stock still? I'm looking to replace my 198c that just crapped out its display. I'm looking to stay around $500 and I know there are some 546s units kicking around. Any thoughts? thanks!

Gil

Did you get my email ?

Have ordered a new Comp 25, now looking at sounders, AP etc.

Thinking of FCV295 with SS270W non-diplex as primary sounder unit. Then getting the 1040xs primarily for GPS, NMEA 2000 link up, Auto pilot, AIS etc.

The 1040xs also comes with sounder so would be silly not to take advantage of that - was thinking of 1kw CHIRP into this. Which ducer and what price to do this ?

Does it need a black box for this or ducer straight into the back like the FCV295 ?

Would the CHIRP ducer and the SS270W clash being mounted through hull in close proximity ?

The SS270W is a chunky thing and would require a bit of installation fibre glassing around it to get it flush. Same for whichever CHIRP you recommend or is the CHIRP a flush mounted thing ?

Steve
