Garmin heads to METS with new announcements


Echo550c_HR_100.2 4 METS  (the Marine Equipment Trade Show) is the world's largest trade exhibition of international marine equipment, materials and systems. And for those of us here in the States that can't be in Amsterdam to see the show up close and personal, here's a look at our newest electronics announcements that were made this morning in time for the start of tomorrow's show.

First up – the powerful new echo series family of fishfinders. This new line of standalone fishfinders raises the standard for freshwater sonar performance and ease of use. From economical 8-level grayscale units to a full array of super-bright color models, these new Garmin systems sport an updated look, and with Garmin HD-ID™ target tracking technology, they deliver the separation and definition fisherman need and expect. 

Nine time F.L.W. Tour Championship qualifier, and long-time Garmin-sponsored pro, Scott Martin, will be the face of the new “I’ll echo that” campaign that will kick off in 2011.

“Whether I’m fishing a tournament or just for fun, my Garmin is always leading the way,” said tournament fisherman, TV host and pro bass guide Scott Martin. “For me, just like every fisherman out there, it’s all about catching more fish – and I’m confident that these powerful new fishfinders will help get even better results.”

Learn more about all six new echo models here: echo 550c, echo 500c, echo 300c, echo 200, echo 150, and echo 100.

IMG_9898 404xHD radar Garmin also announced its new GMR 404/406xHD open-array radars in conjunction with METS. These two new xHD open-array radar models will give mariners high-definition picture quality in a robust, yet affordable, package. The GMR 404 xHD and 406 xHD complement the powerful xHD family of open-array radar scanners, which now offer the same high performance in a 4-, 6-, or 12-kilowatt scanner.

Check back to the Garmin blog later this week for more updates from METS, and pictures from the show!
