The Garmin echo 550c is a dual-beam fishfinder with a color display for freshwater fishing. This has the same functions as the Garmin echo 300c, but the display has been expanded to a larger 5 inch screen and the power has been boosted to 500 watts (RMS), giving it a depth read capability of up to 1,900 feet. This is virtually identical to the Garmin echo 500c, but the screen resolution has been increased to 480 x 640 for a sharper picture. They are otherwise the same, using the Garmin HD-ID target tracking system to ensure that a target doesn't get lost, and a dual-beam transducer system that switches from shallow to deep water modes as needed. Wide angle coverage of up to 120 degrees is used in order to detect fish outside of the area directly under the boat. Garmin Smooth Scaling technology is also used to keep a record of the sonar history and give a smoother, easier to follow display of a target during depth changes.
