About the Garmin ECHOMAP™ UHD 94sv
If you're serious about fishing, you know how important it is to have the right electronic equipment on your boat. The Garmin echoMAP™ UHD 94SV chartplotter comes preloaded with BlueChart g3 maps and Navionics data covering the coastal U.S. and it also has built-in Wi-Fi, so you can access Garmin's ActiveCaptain™ app for notifications, info sharing, and more.
High-contrast color display
Ultra-fast processing refreshes your position and heading 5 times per second, so onscreen movement looks fluid on the 9" high-contrast color display. You be able to see those fish in any lighting conditions, thanks to an auto-adjusting backlight. You can also drop up to 5000 waypoints and find your way back to your favorite fishing spot.
Preloaded BlueChart® g3 HD maps
The ECHOMAP UHD 94SV is preloaded with BlueChart g3 maps covering the coastal U.S. (East Coast, West Coast, Gulf of Mexico, U.S. and Canadian sides of the Great Lakes). That's a lot of info, but it's easy to take in, thanks to a clean display, smooth transitions between zoom levels, and excellent continuity across the chart boundaries. You can customize your displays by shading any and all depth contours that are too shallow for your vessel. Use the microSD™ card slot to add additional maps, or purchase maps through the ActiveCaptain app.
Find those fish
The echoMAP UHD 94SV gives you plenty of ways to find the fish. With Ultra High-Definition scanning sonar (available only with GT54UHD-TM UHD transducer), traditional CHIRP sonar, plus Garmin CHIRP ClearVü and Side Vü, you'll see 'em if they're there. You'll see the fish, plus the structures and submerged objects they're trying to hide behind.
Expand your horizons with the ActiveCaptain™ app
Add Garmin's ActiveCaptain™ app to your smartphone, and you can receive smart notifications on your chartplotter, plus access the ActiveCaptain and Quickdraw Contours Communities to share maps, waypoints, and marina info, and get important software update notifications.
Transfer those waypoints
If your waypoints, tracks, or frequently used routes are stored on another manufacturer's GPS product —or on a Garmin handheld device — you can transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter, via GPX Waypoints Transfer.
Maps, your way
The echoMAP UHD 94SV includes preloaded Quickdraw Contours software that lets you create your own HD maps with 1-foot contours. You'll own the maps, so you can keep the data to yourself or share it with Garmin or your friends. No surveying expertise is needed — you just fish and let your Garmin handle the map creation.
Smart features for smart boaters
Enter a desired location and let Garmin Auto Guidance technology search relevant charts to create a safe virtual pathway on the display that helps you avoid low bridges, shallow water, and other charted obstructions. You can adjust the pathway by inserting “via” points at interim stops or landmarks along the way.
If you need even more "at a glance" info, you can designate up to 10 different depth ranges and assign a unique color to each one. If you're coming from a different chartplotter, this could be a great way to retain the visual cues you're used to.
NMEA 2000 network-ready
When you integrate this chartplotter with your NMEA 2000® network, you'll be able to see engine data, check sensors, manage autopilot, and more. It also supports Panoptix LiveVü Forward Sonar, works with Garmin's Force™ trolling motor, and will work with your FUSION-Link™ audio system.
Safe and secure
It's easy to stow your echoMAP away when you're not on board. The cords plug directly into the mount, so you won't have to waste time plugging and unplugging wires. Just remove your Garmin from power and the mount, then stow it away and go.

More details on the Garmin ECHOMAP™ UHD 94sv
Overview: The Garmin ECHOMAP UHD 94sv (Garmin part # 010-02343-00) is a chartplotter, preloaded with Garmin's exclusive BlueChart g3 coastal charts and LakeVü g3 inland maps with integrated Navionics® data and Auto Guidance technology. In addition, a built-in microSD slot lets you add more specialized and detailed charts and maps that are available from Garmin. The ECHOMAP UHD 94sv has a 9.0" (diagonal) full color touchscreen display that can be mounted in a variety of ways. The unit has a water rating of IPX7, and can withstand being splashed with water without worry, but unsuitable for prolonged immersion.
Note: This model does not include a sonar transducer. To see the same model with a transducer, click here.
Display: The ECHOMAP UHD 94sv has a 7.8" (wide) x 4.8" (high), 9.0" diagonal full color touchscreen WVGA display with 400 x 800 pixels. It has a variable backlight adjustment (automatic or manual), with day and night color schemes that change automatically or you can set manually. With the large display, you can create custom combination pages with up to several different functions on the display at once.
Keypad: In addition to touchscreen controls, the ECHOMAP UHD 94sv features several buttons for operating the device. The keypad consists of a power button, a plus/minus control for zooming in and out of a chart or view, and shortcut keys, numbered 1-4, that can be assigned to an active screen so you can open it instantly when pressed.
Global Positioning System: The ECHOMAP UHD 94sv has a built-in GPS receiver that collects data from overhead satellites to establish your current location. The GPS signal strength is indicated on the top of the screen in a bar graph (5 bars maximum). The device is equipped with a 5 Hz GPS receiver which refreshes its position and heading 5 times per second. In addition, the unit coordinates the timing of the sonar return in relation to the boat's position to give you amazingly accurate waypoints or for pinpointing fishing hotspots.
Charts and Maps: The unit is preloaded with Garmin's LakeVü g3 maps, with coverage of more than 17,000 inland lakes with up to 1' contours and Depth Range Shading for clearer lake floor view, and enabling you to view your target depth at a glance. Additional maps are available on microSD or download.
Quickdraw Contours: The ECHOMAP UHD 94sv features Quickdraw Contours software already installed on the device. This free software allows you to tailor the preloaded maps and create your own maps on the screen. While you fish, Quickdraw Contours creates the maps based on the sonar results from an attached compatible transducer. Compatible transducers include any Garmin Panoptix, HD-ID, DownVü, ClearVü or NMEA 2000-compatible. If you are using more than one transducer, you can choose which sonar device gives you the best results.
Mounting Options: The 94sv consists of a display/control unit and a tilting bail mount with a quick release feature. When you come off the water, just disconnect the display/control unit from the bail mount and go. No plugging or unplugging wires from the unit itself, as the cables plug into the quick-disconnect bail mount. You can also flush-mount the display/control unit into your dashboard. A flush-mount template helps you make the cut into the mounting location. A self-adhesive rubber gasket is provided for flush-mount applications. A snap-on cover protects the display/control unit when you're not on the water.
NMEA 2000: The ECHOMAP UHD 94sv can be connected to an NMEA 2000 network which can carry power and data along the same cable. If your vessel has an existing NMEA 2000 network, it should already be connected to power. The device can share data from other NMEA 2000 devices, such as sensors or a VHF radio, plus you may also be able to view fuel and engine data on the display. The necessary cables and connectors are sold separately.
Wi-Fi: The unit has built-in Wi-Fi that allows you to connect to the free Garmin ActiveCaptain app on your mobile device. ActiveCaptain has a OneChart feature for accessing and updating all of your charts and maps from your smartphone or tablet, as well as purchase new ones to use on the chartplotter. You can also receive notifications of phone calls and texts on the unit's display. ActiveCaptain also lets you keep in touch with fellow boaters to get first-hand information about points of interest near your route or destination. Separate ActiveCaptain and Mobile Quickdraw communities are available for feedback or for sharing your Quickdraw Contours data. The Garmin ActiveCaptain app is compatible with devices running Android 5.0 and up, or Apple iOS 11.0 or later.
Chart Views: The ECHOMAP UHD 94sv has LakeVü g3 inland maps pre-loaded into its memory. The Navigation Chart view shows the navigation data on the included maps with details including buoys, lights, cables, depth soundings, marinas, and tide stations in an overhead view. With optional premium charts, you can get a Fishing Chart view or several 3D views, including Perspective 3D, Mariner's Eye 3D, Fish Eye 3D, and Relief Shading.
Auto Guidance: The pre-loaded maps are integrated with Navionics® data and Auto Guidance technology to help you navigate to your destination. After you enter your desired destination, Auto Guidance scans your chart data, such as water depth and known obstacles, and uses your desired depth and overhead clearance to calculate a suggested path. You can manually adjust the path during navigation, if desired.
Note: Auto Guidance is designed for planning purposes only, and should not replace safe navigation operations.
Waypoints: You can mark and save up to 5000 waypoints into the unit's memory. Waypoints can be marked at your present location, or you can enter the coordinates to a waypoint at a different location. Each waypoint can be saved with a name, symbol, depth, and comments. Once a waypoint has been saved, you can select and navigate to its location. You can also measure the distance to the waypoint on the Waypoint Map.
Routes: A route is a sequence of waypoints or locations that leads you to your final destination. You can create and immediately navigate a route on the Navigation chart or the Fishing chart, or create a route by putting together a series of waypoints and turns. Up to 100 routes can be created and saved in the device.
Tracks: A track is a recording of the current path of your boat. You can designate a color for each track to differentiate them from each other. Tracks are created by automatically marking the current location at a set interval. The interval can be adjusted--recording more frequent plots increases accuracy, but fills up the track log quicker. You can also record tracks by the distance between points, or the variance from your course. You can log and save up to 50 tracks with 50,000 points.
Boundaries: Boundaries allow you to remain in or avoid designated areas in a body of water. You can set up an alarm to alert you when you enter or exit a boundary. Boundaries can be areas, lines, or circles on the map. Saved tracks and routes can also be converted into boundary lines.
Other Available Data: The ECHOMAP UHD 94sv lets you view data on tides, currents, and celestial conditions for a specifice date and time:
- Tide Station Info: You can view tide height, and the times when the next high and low tides will occur.
- Current Station Info: You can view current speed and the level of the current.
- Celestial Info: Information regarding sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, moon phase, and the approximate sky view location of the sun and moon can be viewed on the screen.
