Garmin echoMAP 93sv Review

Garmin echoMAP 93sv Fish Finder
With the Garmin echoMAP 93sv, the challenge of guessing where the fish are is virtually at an end, and the fisherman can focus on the real sport of getting the fish to take the bait.

echoMAP 93sv includes a 9-inch high-contrast color display with automatic backlight adjustment. Fast, responsive 5 Hz GPS/GLONASS refreshes your position and heading 5 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. echoMAP comes with 1 transducer for 77/200 kHz HD-ID sonar and Garmin DownVü™/SideVü™, the clearest scanning sonars on the water. It also supports Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motors with integrated transducers. The combo’s cords plug directly into the mount, allowing you to quickly install and remove your device from power and the mount.

The fish finder itself has impressive measurements of nearly a foot wide by just over half a foot high and two inches thick. It’s needed to hold a high-resolution screen that’s nine inches. The screen is perfect for displaying images of both what’s beneath and what’s to either side in separate panels with sharp details. The screen also automatically brightens or dims the backlight level for optimal viewing at all times.

The device provides a microSD slot to allow importing additional maps beyond the included 17,000 freshwater bodies contained in the LakeVu HD package. Two mounts for the 2.3 pound device are included – one swivels while the other provides a flush profile. Both make rapid installation and removal easy. The sonar data is supplied by a GT40 transducer that can be attached to the transom or a trolling motor.

Garmin DownVü™ scanning sonar gives you a nearly photographic image of what passes below your boat. Garmin SideVü scanning sonar gives you a crisp, clear view of what lies up to 750-feet off to each side of your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish.

Traditional Garmin HD-ID sonar and both DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar are combined into one transducer. Also provides HD-ID support for Minn Kota and MotorGuide trolling motors with integrated transducers. The echoMAP 93sv also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat’s position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using free HomePort™ planning software.

The Garmin echoMAP 93sv provides the LakeVu HD suite of freshwater maps. This feature offers 17,000 maps of the most popular lakes and rivers in the U.S. The competition doesn’t even come close to this number. 5,700 of these maps provide one foot contour resolution.

The maps offer the option for the operator to enter a minimal depth setting to avoid areas and obstacles above the watercraft’s draft. The maps work with GPS tracking that reads the boat’s location five times a second to realistically portray its position on a given map at any time. If this isn’t enough, enhancement software like LakeVu HD Ultra, Bluechart g2, and Bluechart g2 Vision are available for sale on microSD card.

This unit will be a very popular choice among those looking for a big screen and a complete set of sonar features.
