  • Garmin- Chart Plotting Speed

    How fast can I go and still get a good map of the lake when recording? I have never used it yet.

    depends on so many factors:

    What Garmin you have
    what transducer you have
    what type of water youre boating in
    what type of hull you have it bolted to
    is there debris in the water
    did a fish fart in front of the transducer

    call Garmin to get a rough ballpark idea

    go out and try it to get a real idea

      25mph and under is what is recommend. After the boat speed goes over 25mph the green circle will turn yellow to indicate that it has passed the optimum performance.

      As long as you have bottom lock it will continue to record. Calmer conditions will provide better results.

        Great. Easy. I was concerned under 3 mph. I want to record at 7 mph. Should be fine then. Thanks all.
