The Garmin CHIRP Difference
The built-in sonar capabilities of ECHOMAP Plus 45cv include our CHIRP traditional sonar, one of the most sophisticated sonar technologies available for the fishing and boating public. CHIRP traditional sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition, because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. It also provides traditional sonar support for Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motors with integrated transducers.
Clear Scanning Sonar Images
Garmin CHIRP ClearVü scanning sonar gives you a nearly photographic image of what’s below your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. Garmin CHIRP traditional sonar and CHIRP ClearVü scanning sonar are combined into 1 transducer.

Canada LakeVü HD gives you excellent detail of underwater features, plus Shallow Water Shading allows you to designate a minimum depth.
