Garmin Panoptix™: All Seeing Sonar

Share this Post:

Angelo Viola knows a winner when he sees one. “With the introduction of Panoptix™ technology, Garmin has changed the sonar/scanner landscape … fishing will never be the same, it’s a new game!”

Panoptix™ all-seeing sonar is unlike anything you’ve ever seen on the water. It gives you the ability to see all around your boat in real-time. You can see fish in the water column in 3D. You can also see your bait cast into the water and watch it as you reel it in. You can see fish swimming in front of or below your boat. You can even see them chase your lure.

“This is the future of depthfinder technology”, says Fish’n Canada co-host Peter Bowman. 

But to truly appreciate Panoptix, you have to see it.

The Panoptix Forward transducer provides two impressive views, even if your boat is stationary. It shows the bottom plus fish and bait swimming in the water column in front of your boat – in real time. You can even see your lure as you reel it in. You can also get 3D views of fish and structure in front of your boat.

The Panoptix Down transducer delivers three remarkable views. You can actually see fish and bait swimming under your boat – in real time. You can even see fish in the water column in 3D, from the bottom to the surface. Even while stationary, you can still see in 3D below your boat.


“With traditional depthfinders, you can only see straight down and with limited resolution”, says Pete. “But with this new Panoptix technology, you can see ahead of the boat, gauge distance from the boat as well as the exact depth of your target. It’s awesome!”

We think you’ll like it too.

Fish'n Canada

The Fish’n Canada Show first aired in 1986 with phenomenal success. In 1988 the program went coast to coast on CBC, the first North American weekly fishing show to broadcast on a national network. In 1992 the show went into syndication adding Global Television Network, prominent CTV and affiliates, and several cable networks. The move resulted in unprecedented fishing audiences. With the addition of WFN U.S. and The Sportsman Chanel Canada today the Fish’n Canada show dominates the airwaves with a national weekly reach of 3.5 million and ama of over 450,000 easily making it one of the most-watched “outdoors” programs in North America.
