The Marine 2016 collection includes the Echomap Chirp Series, which relies on cutting-edge sonar technology to give people a vivid picture of the water below and at the side of their boats. The Chirp's scanning sonar detects fish and other wildlife, while picking up on submerged structures and potentially damaging obstacles lurking beneath the surface. With Echomap Chirp, people can make their own maps of the water or draw on a database of thousands of freshwater maps.

The Panoptix All Seeing Sonar is another amazing Garmin marine device which gives people a real-time view of the water surrounding their boats. Fishing enthusiasts will love to see the fish swimming about, chasing the lures and nipping at the bait. Not to be outdone, the Striker Series is a collection of fish-finding devices with built-in GPS and sonar technology. With Striker products, fishermen can create a map that pinpoints any fishing hotspots they've come across, making it easier to return to locations with plenty of fish.

Also available is the new GMR 2524 xHD2 25KW Open Array Radar. Featuring an 8 bit true color display with Pulse Expansion mode, this Garmin radar has a max range of 96 nautical miles. With its use of high caliber data, this radar is sensitive enough to differentiate between a variety of small objects such as birds and fish.

Garmin's durable, sophisticated products are designed to work well together for any boater or fisherman. While the technology is complex, the devices are easy to install and use, providing clear, compelling visuals that improve the quality of boating and fishing excursions. As a bonus, certain products are compatible with Garmin's free Quickdraw Contours software, which rapidly creates high-definition fishing maps while the boat is out on the water. Garmin's Marine 2016 has an unparalleled variety of features and benefits for anyone who finds themselves on a boat or fishing trip.
