Garmin® International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NYSE: GRMN), the world's largest1 and most innovative marine electronics manufacturer, today announced the ECHOMAP™ UHD2 chartplotter series with 500W of vivid, high-contrast scanning sonar power*, all-new hardware with a sunlight readable display and more.

Offered in a new 5-inch as well as the popular 7-inch display, the ECHOMAP UHD2 plotters offer physical buttons for easy control and operation of functions every angler wants for a successful outing, including marking key waypoints or quickly toggling between different chart views. Plus, built-in Wi-Fi® enables seamless sharing of sonar and user data between two ECHOMAP UHD2 units onboard.

"The ECHOMAP UHD2 series offers our best-in-class sonar, industry-leading mapping1 and fish-finding features that allow anglers to fish like a local," said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. "Valued as a budget-friendly option, this new series leverages the simplicity and accessibility of a full-button design while delivering all the necessary functions you would want on the water - from lightning-fast chart redraw and crisp sonar views to our new Garmin Navionics+ cartography. Packed with core mapping and sonar features, ECHOMAP UHD2 helps users pursue their next epic catch or explore inland and coastal waters with greater confidence."

Wirelessly share sonar and data across devices

Whether fishing with a friend or wanting the flexibility to add another chartplotter on board, built-in wireless networking allows anglers to stream sonar and share user data, such as waypoints and routes, between two ECHOMAP UHD2 units.

Sonar support

When bought with an ECHOMAP UHD2, the GT20-TM transducer delivers a crisp view of structure, bait and fish - right from the plotter screen. For even greater clarity, users can add to their onboard system by purchasing a GT24UHD-TM transducer with Ultra-High Definition scanning sonar - CHIRP traditional and ClearVü - to target and identify a wider array of fish in vivid colour schemes.

Must-have mapping for boating and fishing

For advanced mapping features, daily chart updates and more, ECHOMAP UHD2 plotters come preloaded with the new Garmin Navionics+™ cartography. In addition to a host of detail-rich No. 1 marine mapping1 content at their fingertips, and the ability to track up to 5,000 waypoints, the ECHOMAP UHD2 series provides impressively fast and smooth chart redraw speeds to ensure anglers are poised and ready for their next cast. Users can also access the ActiveCaptain® community for local knowledge and information and seamlessly update and upgrade their charts through the ActiveCaptain app.

Refreshed hardware and design

By incorporating style elements from legacy Garmin ECHOMAP UHD chartplotters, this UHD2 series debuts an attractive hardware redesign to serve the needs of the modern angler while maintaining a clean and classic keyed interface. To weather a range of conditions on the water, ECHOMAP UHD2 chartplotters feature a bright, sunlight-readable display, as well as Garmin's latest user interface and graphics for more intuitive handling and control.

The ECHOMAP UHD2 series is available now with suggested retail prices ranging from £499.99 to £599.99. Visit Garmin.com to learn more about the full ECHOMAP UHD2 keyed chartplotter series and compatible accessories.
