See what’s down there. Catch what’s down there. Take sport fishing to extreme depths with a high-powered sonar module with the features that are needed to improve the chances of success.

Features:

  • Engineered for offshore sport fishing
  • See sonar faster with Garmin RapidReturn™ technology
  • Crisp and clear fish targets with Xchirp technology
  • Excellent target separation with xCHIRP technology
  • Greatly reduce wave and swell from bottom returns with heave compensation

Garmin RapidReturn Sonar 

This high-performance technology provides Garmin's fastest deep-water scrolling sonar with 2 to 6 times the ping rate of Garmin's GSD™ 26 sonar. This allows captains to make fast and informed decisions based on what is below their boats.

xCHIRP Technology

Easily distinguish bait from sport fish with Garmin's clearest traditional sonar fish arches and excellent target separation. Get smooth bottom returns and precise targeting at extreme depths.

Heave Compensation

When the seas get rough, use the MSC™ 10 external satellite compass (sold separately) to greatly reduce wave and swell from the sonar returns.

Compatibility 

Transducer Support

This sonar module is compatible with a wide range of Garmin and AIRMAR® transducers (sold separately).

Retrofitting

The GSD 28 module is ideal for retrofitting boats with existing bare wire transducers.
