Garmin’s new GT56/GT36 transducers


GARMIN introduces the GT56 and GT36, its latest transducers offering Ultra High-Definition (UHD) ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonar with 20 per cent greater range and three frequencies for top performance with improved clarity.

The new GT56 and GT36 transducers deliver UHD ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonar, so anglers can see clear images of structure and fish below and off to the sides of their boat. What’s more, Garmin’s UHD SideVü sonar now has 20 per cent greater range at 1,000 kHz, so anglers can scan waters further and in greater detail than ever.

In addition to UHD ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonars, the all-in-one GT56 transducer also offers high wide CHIRP traditional sonar with clear target separation and definition up to 800 feet below the boat.

With multiple scanning sonar frequencies, anglers can make simple adjustments for the waters they’re fishing. Both the GT56 and GT36 deliver 455 kHz, 800 kHz and 1,000 kHz for improved scanning performance at varying depths. They also support Garmin’s new high-contrast vivid scanning sonar colour palettes, making it easier to distinguish fish from structure based on the user’s preferences and fishing conditions. With seven new vivid color options added, Garmin now offers a choice of 16 colour palettes.

The GT56 and GT36 is compatible with the GPSMAP 8400xsv and 8600xsv series, the new GPSMAP 7×3, 9×3 and 12×3 “sv” chartplotters, as well as the ECHOMAP Ultra series and the ECHOMAP UHD “sv” chartplotters.
