Newly launched, the premium Fusion Signature 3i Speakers expand and improve on the existing Fusion line-up. The updated range features stylish new colourways for an elegant fit on any boat. The Fusion stand will feature a full complement of audio products and visitors can test and receive support on integrating these systems onto their own boats.
The quatix 7 series of premium smart watches are designed for life on the water. The top-of-the-range Sapphire models add an always-on AMOLED display for sharper colour, clarity and brightness whilst maintaining top-end battery life. Also featuring coastal charts, autopilot control and key environmental data, quatix 7 is the perfect smartwatch for life on the ocean.
Also on display will be the LiveScope + and LiveScope XR. Featuring 35% target separation over previous systems, LiveScope + enhances the fishing experience with sharper resolution, reduced noise and Garmin’s clearest imagery to date. Alongside this, the ECHOMAPS UHD2 chartplotter series will also be available to demo. Featuring a sunlight readable display, physical buttons for ease of control and built in Wi-Fi alongside all-new hardware, these chartplotters offer everything a mariner could want for a successful outing on the water.
Garmin and Fusion will be at stands J386 and J377.
