Overview: The Garmin echo 150 Portable Bundle includes the
echo 150 compact fishfinder, a portable base with handle, 12-volt rechargeable
lead-acid battery with charger, and carrying bag. The display features a 4" grayscale display and a 200-watt,
dual-frequency sonar transducer
to help you locate fish in up to 1300 feet of fresh water (500' of salt water).
HD-ID: Garmin's exclusive HD-ID target tracking technology provides
enhanced separation and definition of the images on the screen. The unit can be
set to show suspended targets with a fish symbol with (or without) target depth
Display: The echo 150 features a 4" (diagonal) FSTN
display with 160 x 256 pixels. The 8-level grayscale display has a vertical
orientation with 4-level backlighting, and is mounted to a 3" diameter swiveling
base that can tilt from 0° to 90° (7 positions) and lock into place. Scrolling
from right to left, the display will show a full-view graph of sonar readings
from the transducer. It shows the bottom depth in large numerals, along with the
water temperature. The unit has an adjustable depth range (Auto or manual 5' to
1300'), and the depth scale is shown at the bottom of the screen, along with the
Transducer: The dual-frequency (200 kHz/77 kHz) transducer
transmits sound waves through the water and receives them to relay information
to the display. You can show data from a 200 kHz sonar signal or data from a 77
kHz sonar signal. The 200 kHz frequency shows better detail, has a narrower beam
(60°) and is typically used in shallower waters. The 77 kHz frequency penetrates
deep water more effectively, and has a wider beam (120°), so it can be used to
cover a larger area. The transducer has an attached 20' cable to accommodate
large or small boats. The transducer comes with a suction cup mount and a float.
Beeper/Alarms: The echo 150 has a beeper that will sound to confirm
each button press, or can be set to sound only for alarms, or turned off
completely. There are several audible alarms that can be independently set in
- Shallow: The unit will alarm when the water depth is shallower
that the set value (0 to 1300').
- Deep: The unit will alarm when the water depth is deeper than the
set value (0 to 1300')
- Battery: The unit will alarm when the battery voltage is lower
than the set value (8V to 20V)
- Fish: The unit will alarm when the device detects a suspended
