Product Overview

Add clear SideVü/DownVü scanning sonar to your compatible Garmin chartplotter!

The GCV 10 scanning sonar module provides clear scanning sonar images adding both SideVü and DownVü with CHIRP scanning sonar technologies to your compatible Garmin echoMAP or GPSMAP series combo as well as your GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm series (see compatible devices below). CHIRP technology sweeps through a range of frequencies to give you an ultra-clear sonar picture of objects, structure and fish that pass below (DownVü) and to the sides (SideVü) of your boat. Together with your combo’s HD-ID™ sonar, you get an excellent search and confirmation tool for advanced fishfinding in both fresh and saltwater. Three network ports are provided for advanced networking with multiple units.


The GCV 10 can coexist on the same network with other black box sonars. For example, if you currently have a GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm, a GSD™ 24 advanced sonar module or a GSD 26 CHIRP professional sonar module on your Garmin Marine Network, you can greatly enhance your fishing capabilities by adding a GCV 10.


DownVü Scanning

DownVü gives you a nearly photographic sonar view of structure and fish that pass below your boat. You can view DownVü scanning images in conjunction with SideVü and your HD-ID sonar, or CHIRP sonar images on the same screen.


SideVü Scanning

An excellent tool for scoping out a fishing area quickly, SideVü provides a wide view of what lies off to either side of your boat. You see a crystal clear image that makes it easy to identify wrecks, structure, rocks and, yes, even the fish that are lurking next to them. You can view SideVü scanning images in conjunction with DownVü and your HD-ID sonar, or CHIRP sonar images on the same screen.


Transom Mount Transducer

Includes a 12-pin DownVü/SideVü transom mount transducer with fast response temperature sensor. Optional Jack Plate Mount or Step Mount available (sold separately).
