Garmin has unveiled a new Ultra High-Definition scanning sonar that lets anglers see up to 200 feet below the boat.

Garmin announced today its Ultra High-Definition scanning sonar, a new technology that uses a higher frequency range to deliver clear images and detail of structure and fish below and around the boat at greater depths.

Clarity and detail of fish, rocks, brush piles, structure and beyond are enhanced with this new scanning sonar system that includes Ultra High-Definition ClearVü and Ultra High-Definition SideVü sonar with frequencies ranging from .8 to 1.2 MHz.

“Our Ultra High-Definition scanning sonar will give inland and nearshore anglers the greatest detail available from a Garmin system to date,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales, in a statement.

The ClearVü image clarity lets anglers see up to 200 feet below the boat, which the company says is deeper than other high-frequency scanning sonars.

“It’s available as a standalone system that’s compatible with all of our current GPSMAP and select ECHOMAP Plus multi-function displays, further proving our continued commitment to offering the best sonar technology in the market to both our existing and future customers,” Bartel said.
