I am contemplating purchasing tis unit ofr a modified Hull boat. Will be primary fishing in areas no more than 150 feet. Most of the time around 40 to 60 feet. Looking for a Transducer that will work very good for traditional sonar as well as downscan and especially sidescan.
What would you recommend?
Thanks

Hi Gil
Would it be possible for you to make a brief rundown of the difference between the 1242XSV touch and the 7612XSV ? Was salivating over the 7612XSV but am curious why this one is cheaper.

Thanks in advance for your time.

The 7612xsv has 2 transducer ports
It can fire two different ducers at the same time..or fire a single dual band ducer.
And one can be a side and down scan


The 1242xsv has 1 transducer port.
It can fire only 1 ducer .
And it has to be a single band..or a Side and Down scan etc.

The Garmin site shows that this new touch chart plotter is compatible with the new GCV 20 Ultra HD sonar system. If you install that system are you still only able to use one transducer, the transom mount that is designed for the GCV unit? If so, would you be giving up the higher running speed Performance of a thru-hull transducer? Would you also sacrifice performance beyond a certain depth?

The new GCV20 uses the network port...just like the GSD26 and GCV10...

So..


That still allows one to use the normal transducer port....you then have a very wide selection of traditional transducer options.

and also use the side and down scan of the GCV 20 at the same time.

Gil, boat and repair and taxes are done..... Getting ready to order, when is your 'quiet time' when you'd rather not get calls?
We talked about the 942xvs but I leaning toward the 1042 with the taller display. Bundeled with ?? TD

Shoot thru would be nice but bilge access is limited

Do you handle VHF antennae or have a source for a good 8' Digital?

Default Arima Sea Legend 22 dash

Thanks Gil. I ordered the Garmin 1242 xsv last Monday along with the Arirmar T 185 M 1 KW transducer. The Garmin arrived last Friday and the trransuder today ( Monday ). Very impressive delivery time and free to me also. I'll report on the transducer when I get it mounted and wet.

What makes the garmin gpsmap the higher end unit compared to the new garmin echomap ultra series in a comparable screen? I notice the ultra can run the UHD without a black box. Also, both have two garmin marine network connections. screen resolution looks the same. what sets the gpsmap series apart? Is there difference in hardware? I will not be connecting radar or anything as I fish 100% inland lakes. Networking units is a selling point, but its not that huge for me. I know i can use helm with the gpsmap series, but that would only be beneficial to me if I could run two separate views at the same time, not just mirroring.

Trying to decide on a 1242xvs or whatever the new echomap ultra is that is a 12" that runs sonar.

I think only the 8XXX series can run the UHD without a black box..I would assume that means hardware changes to make it run without a black box.

For 100 % lakes..the new ultra is the ticket.


The Garmin Ultra is designed for use of the full line of Panoptix system....no black boxes required.
LiveScope built in.
Ultra High Def built in.
Built in Wifi allows use of ActiveCaptain.
Networkable to other 10"/12" Ultra units or to the Garmin 94sv/74sv Plus units.
600 watt CHIRP




A GPSMAP such as the 8610xsv...also has the Live Scope built in but also is radar capable, and also can fire a single or dual band 1 kw CHRP transducers.
and is full networkable to other GPSMAP units.

I have a thru hull transducer in my boat, can I just plug that in to this unit and rock on? I understand that I will not have the advanced capabilities, but would be nice to just mount this unit and go, save any big work for the fall.
