  • GSD ™ 25 Integrates DownVü, SideVü and CHIRP Sonar   OLATHE, Kan./October 29, 2014/Business Wire – Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced the GSD 25, a premium sonar module that offers traditional sonar, 1kW CHIRP, CHIRP DownVü and CHIRP SideVü scanning sonar for a versatile, all-in-one black box.  “Having a fully comprehensive view of what’s below your boat is important for anyone that’s out on the water,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of worldwide sales.  “No matter where you’re looking or what you’re trying to see, the GSD 25 provides vivid detail below and beside the vessel, along with the brilliant clarity associated with CHIRP.  The GSD 25 encompasses the most beneficial sonar technology in one simple solution and will help make a day out on the water that much more successful.”    The GSD 25 is the ultimate solution for the boater or angler that requires both scanning capabilities and traditional sonar.  Incorporating DownVü and SideVü, the clearest scanning sonar on the water, with true, dual 1kW CHIRP, the GSD 25 helps provide a crystal clear image with excellent target separation and location without the need for multiple black boxes. CHIRP has become a valuable tool when out on the water.  Unlike traditional sonar that only emits a single frequency, CHIRP sweeps a designated range of frequencies, ranging from low to high.  As a result, the return information is interpreted and since the continuous emission of frequencies provides a much wider range of information, CHIRP sonar is able to create a clearer, higher resolution image
