The Garmin echoMAP 50s GPS is an amazing chartplotter and fish finder combination. Its crystal-clear 5″ display provides clear target separation, allows visibility both day and night, and has a user interface that anyone can navigate. It comes with a worldwide basemap or Garmin U.S. lakes or offshore cartography.
The GPS chip on the Garmin EchoMap 50s is a newer version that pulls data from multiple satellites and shows an even more accurate reading called the GPS/GLONASS receiver. Your location refreshes up to 10 times each second, so the usual lag you see on GPS readings will be greatly reduced.
The unit comes with multiple mapping options. You can either get it with a map of 5000 US Lakes called LakeVU HD, or with Garmin’s famous BlueChart G2 vision charts – these are best for coastal areas.
With the integration of a 10Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver, the 50s refreshes position and heading up to 10 times per second. It displays constant and fluid on-screen location and proves to be incredibly accurate when marking waypoints and navigating.
This offers you true position and heading data smoothly and accurately – especially evident when coming out of turns.
The EchoMap 50s comes equipped with a large 5 inch color display that is visible even in direct sunlight.
What’s interesting about this display that it is longer than it is wide, which gives you a lot more room to see depth, since after all, SONAR is a depth finder at its basics.
This also means the unit will take up less dashboard space.
With this fish finder you’ll be finding fish like a pro.
