The Garmin CHIRP Difference

The built-in sonar capabilities of echoMAP 55dv include CHIRP sonar, the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public. CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. It 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 HomePort™ planning software. Use the user data sharing cable to share waypoints and routes between multiple devices.

Create Your Own HD Maps

Quickdraw Contours is a free, easy-to-use software feature already installed on your echoMAP CHIRP 55dv. It instantly creates your own personalized HD fishing maps on screen with 1-foot contours. Tailor the maps as needed; you own them. Keep the data for yourself, or share it with Garmin or your friends. No special surveying expertise is required. You just fish while Quickdraw Contours creates maps. There’s no waiting around or sending your files away like other mapping software requires — your results appear instantly. Use with any Garmin Panoptix™ transducer, any HD-ID sonar, any CHIRP-enabled, Garmin DownVü transducer or NMEA 2000-compatible depth transducer. Have more than 1 sonar device installed onboard? Quickdraw Contours automatically selects the most capable sonar device to provide the very best results for you.
