The Garmin echo 500c is a dual-beam fishfinder with a color display, and is designed to work in deep or shallow fresh water. This is a larger version of the Garmin echo 300c, with an expanded 5 inch display and a 500 watt (RMS) power output that gives it the capability to read depths of up to 1,900 feet. It is followed in the series by the Garmin echo 550c, which has a higher resolution screen but otherwise all of the same features. The Garmin HD-ID target tracking technology makes it easier to follow a target once you've found it, automatically adjusting settings accordingly. The dual-beam transducer switches between deep and shallow water modes, and offers a wide-angle coverage of up to 120 degrees to detect fish beyond the sides of the boat. Garmin Smooth Scaling technology keeps the sonar history on the screen as the unit changes depth ranges, ensuring that a target doesn't get lost in the process.
