Add Sonar

The GPSMAP 555S is a sounder enabled device which means you have the option of connecting a powerful dual frequency or dual beam transducer that clearly paints depth contours, fish targets and structure whether you’re fishing in seawater or freshwater lakes.

Sounder features on GPSMAP 555S:

  • Maximum Depth: 2000 ft. (dual freq.)
  • Transmit power: 1kW (RMS) dual beam; 1kW (RMS) dual freq.
  • Features: UltraScroll® A-scope, round flasher modes; auto gain with Dynacolor®; CANet® bus; See-Thru® technology

For ease of installation we recommend transom mount transducers.  While a dual frequency transducer is suitable for both seawater and freshwater use, if you intend to use your sounder mostly on freshwater lakes, a single frequency dual beam transducer is more suitable because one of the beams has a wide beam angle which covers a greater volume of water and is especially useful in shallows.

Dual Frequency - 200/50kHz, 15/45°, plastic, transom mount, depth, temp.
Product code: 010-10272-00.  Cost: €76.00 incl. VAT.

Dual Beam: - 200kHz, 20°, plastic, transom/trolling motor mount, depth, temp.
Product code: 010-10249-00.  Cost: €65.00 incl. VAT.
