With the 2018 Bassmaster Classic ready to blast off on Lake Hartwell, S.C., marine electronics manufacturer Garmin announced a new UHD sonar technology it says will deliver even greater detail.


Garmin's Ultra High-Definition scanning sonar uses a higher frequency range to "deliver stunningly clear images and detail of structure and fish below and around the boat at greater depths," the company said in a news release


Clarity and detail of fish, rocks, brush piles, structure and beyond are redefined with this new scanning sonar system that includes Ultra High-Definition ClearVü and Ultra High-Definition SideVü sonar with frequencies ranging from .8 to 1.2 MHz. The superior ClearVü image clarity lets anglers see up to 200 feet below the boat — much deeper than other high-frequency scanning sonars — so fish really have nowhere to hide.


"Our Ultra High-Definition scanning sonar will give inland and nearshore anglers the greatest detail available from a Garmin system to date," said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. "It's available as a standalone system that's compatible with all of our current GPSMAP and select ECHOMAP Plus multi-function displays, further fishing gearproving our continued commitment to offering the best sonar technology in the market to both our existing and future customers."

The UHD system has been installed on the boats of all of Garmin's sponsored pros in the Classic.


The suggested retail price begins at $599.99.
