Garmin echoMAP Plus Series

Ever since the echoMAP Series hit the market, around 2013, it has been a hit and continues to improve with age. The newest series, the echoMAP Plus series has taken the echoMAP CHIRP series and improved on it to meet the demands of today’s fisherman, featuring keyed-assist touchscreens, connectivity capabilities, built-in CHIRP traditional sonar, CHIRP ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonar, Panoptix capability for the 7 and 9-inch series and so much more. The Plus series has you covered whether you are trolling for wahoo or targeting bass.

The echoMAP series is still available to come preloaded with coastal maps – U.S. BlueChart g2 charts, inland maps – LakeVü HD maps or no preloaded maps – base maps. Now, depending on the the series you want, CHIRP or Plus, there are a large variety of sizes to accommodate any fisherman and any budget. The echoMAP Plus series offers a bright, sunlight-readable 4-, 6-, 7- or 9-inch display. The 6-inch units are new to the Plus series and are larger with more pixels and easier to read than previous 5-inch echoMAP CHIRP models. The 7- and 9-inch Plus units have keyed-assist touchscreens this go ’round as well.
