The Garmin 160 Fish Finder has some big advantages over the competition. First, the exclusive See-Thru? technology allows the Fishfinder 160 to hear both weak and strong signals simultaneously, giving it tremendous dynamic range. The result is a display that is capable of showing strong fish returns even when fish are suspended inside structure and thermoclines. Second, Depth Controlled Gain (DCGTM) automatically adjusts fishfinder sensitivity according to depth, not echo intensity like other fishfinders. The result is a much more detailed and accurate picture of bottom structure.
On several occasions I've been on the water, paddling away in my kayak when my alarm will go off. A quick back-paddle to drop the line means that the Garmin 160 Fish Finder almost always pays dividends.
It includes a plastic transom mount transducer with depth temperature. Operating frequency of 200 kHz. Beamwidth of 20 degrees. Transducer kit comes with installation instructions. Follow the instructions carefully so you don't mangle your boat in the process.
As an added plus to anglers, the Fishfinder 160 offers a protective front cover and water temperature readings as standard unit features. In addition, water temperature is displayed below the depth reading for quick visual reference, and a unique control bar identifies the most commonly used fishing settings.
The GARMIN 160 Fish Finder : raising the bar for anglers who want quality equipment at a reasonable price.
