Great Deal on Garmin echomap95SV $999

We have the Garmin echomap 95SV sonar/GPS with LakeVu HD Canada charting built in and the GT40-TM transducer with DownVü/SideVü 500W CHIRP 455/800 kHz imaging sonar! These units can share waypoints with the optional data sharing cable ($30). This is by far the best deal we have seen on a 9″ unit with CHIRP SideVu and maps EVER!!!

Garmin echoMAP 95sv – Canada – 010-01393-00 with Transducer

9-inch Combo with DownVü and SideVü Scanning Sonar

  • High-contrast colour display with keypad control with preloaded Canada LakeVü™ HD maps
  • Built-in DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar with the clearest images on the water
  • Built-in 500 W (RMS) HD-ID™ sonar (4,000 W peak-to-peak)
  • 5 Hz Internal GPS updates position and heading 5 times per second
  • Tilting, quick-disconnect mount

echoMAP 95sv includes a 9-inch high-contrast colour 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 cables plug directly into the mount, allowing you to quickly install and remove your device from power and the mount. Transom and trolling motor mount included.

Clearest Scanning Sonar on the Water
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 95sv 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. Use the User Data Sharing Cable to share waypoints and routes between multiple devices.

Preloaded Canada LakeVü HD Maps
Canada LakeVü HD includes the most detailed freshwater fishing maps ever. With more than 6,000 total lakes — of which 1,000 are HD lakes having 1-foot contours shoreline to shoreline — within Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Yukon provinces. It also includes detailed coverage of the Great Lakes and Trent Severn Waterway, so there is no need to purchase additional mapping accessories for these navigable waters. You get clearly displayed, detailed shorelines, coastlines, streams, channels and fishing locations. It also includes underwater features, such as river beds and fish attractors. Plus, Safety Shading — which allows you to input and shade your minimum depth to help you avoid running aground.

Heading and Position Refreshed 5 Times per Second
Fast, responsive 5 Hz GPS/GLONASS refreshes your position and heading 5 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. It makes dropping up to 5,000 accurate waypoints and finding your way back to your secret fishing hot spots quick and easy.

Take Your echoMAP with You
When you’re off the water, it’s easy to keep your echoMAP safe and secure. You don’t have to mess with plugging and unplugging wires from the unit because the cords plug directly into the mount. This allows you to quickly install and remove your echoMAP from power and the mount.

Upgrade with the Best Garmin Maps on the Water
A single microSD™ card slot provides expandable memory for accessory map purchases such as Canada LakeVü HD Ultra or BlueChart® g2 Vision. Canada LakeVü HD Ultra and BlueChart g2 Vision provide exclusive Garmin Auto Guidance that directs you right to your hot spots by instantly creating an on-screen path based on your boat’s specifications that you can follow to avoid shallow water and other charted obstructions.


Enhanced Auto Guidance
Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto Guidance technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a safe virtual pathway on the display that helps you avoid low bridges, shallow water and other charted obstructions en route.

Better still, with enhanced Version 2.0, you now have access to even more features and capabilities. You’re able to adjust the calculated Auto Guidance pathway by inserting “via” points at interim stops or landmarks along your desired route. You can easily review hazard points along your calculated path. And you can even engage your compatible Garmin autopilot to follow the Auto Guidance route, automatically. Other 2.0 enhancements give you the ability to calculate arrival times at any point on your route (great for timing arrivals to correspond with bridge openings and other time-critical events). Better still, you can now save your plotted Auto Guidance paths for future navigation by backing them up on an SD™ card with your BlueChart® g2 Vision® or Lake Vü™ HD Ultra cartography¹

GPX Waypoints Transfer
If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturer’s GPS product – or on a Garmin handheld device – now it’s easier than ever to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter, via industry-standard GPX software formatting. GPX is an open standard format for GPS data exchange across platforms and applications. With this easy-to-use interface technology, Garmin has taken “no waypoint left behind” to a whole new level of trade-up convenience.

  • Power/data cable
  • Quick-release mount
  • Flush mount
  • Protective cover
