Panoptix PS22-TR Transducer

Garmin’s PS22-TR is the newest addition to the  company’s line of Panoptix sonar transducers. The PS22-TR features LiveVü Forward and LiveVü Down for a narrow, 20-degree beam angle. The result is crisp, improved resolution and clear images of what’s all around and below the boat, in real time and even while stationary.

Paired with a compatible Garmin GPSMAP or echoMAP CHIRP chartplotter, Panoptix lets anglers watch the movement of fish and even their reaction to their bait, up to 100’ away. Designed for trolling-motor installation, the PS22-TR is the latest addition to the Panoptix product line, which now includes 7 models with varying installation options for inland and offshore application.

Unlike traditional or scanning sonar that only provides historical data of what’s been passed over, LiveVü Forward shows an image of fish swimming and moving toward or away from the boat, while LiveVü Down shows moving sonar images below the boat. The PS22-TR’s 20-degree narrow beam angle allows users to pinpoint fish and structure.

Mounting hardware is included to install the PS22-TR on the shaft or barrel of a trolling motor. It’s compatible with select echoMAP CHIRP 7” and 9” models, as well as the GPSMAP 8400/8600, GPSMAP 7400/7600, and the GPSMAP 7×2, 9×2, 10×2 and 12×2 series chartplotters.
