If you are looking to purchase the latest and greatest marine electronics for your boat— these 2023 boat electronics won’t disappoint. Here are the top boat electronics recommended by your local Southwest Florida boat dealer, Fish Tale Boats:
SimradGO7 XSR Chartplotter/Fishfinder
If you purchase a new boat, like the 2023 Chaparral 21 SSi Ski & Fish, from your local boat dealer, you can expect the SimradGO7 XSR Chartplotter/Fishfinder to come standard. However, if you’re adding electronics to a boat you already own, your local boat dealer— Fish Tale Boats—can help you add this top-of-the-line system to give you 2023 technology on board. The GO7 XSR features GPS navigation, sonar, and even radar with wireless connectivity. There are multiple screen sizes, transducer options, and radar options available.
Garmin Navionics Vision +
Garmin offers the latest and highest detail charts available on the market today. With the new Garmin Navionics Vision+, you can keep up to date with the latest chart data as it’s published by Navionics. One of the nicest local features you unlock is 1’ depth contour lines which gives you extra detail in most channels and some canals (found in Fishing Charts). When you pair this with the ActiveCaptain App, you can also download high-resolution relief shading and satellite imagery. When you buy the chart card, it includes the first year of updates and can be continued with a discounted subscription, thereafter.
Garmin GMR Fantom Radar
The GMR Fantom Radars (18x, 24x, and 54) featuring Motionscope, have made quite the splash! Motionscope utilizes Doppler to highlight targets in color based on whether they are approaching or moving away. This allows a fast and easy way to judge the direction of movement for severe weather, flocks of birds, and other boats. The radar also allows you to see what’s coming from 20’ to 48 nautical miles away, even in fog or rain. It has tons of intuitive, unique, and helpful features. For example, you can adjust the on-screen resolution for target separation or utilize the auto bird gain to locate flocks of birds that may signal the proximity of bait first.
Garmin LiveScope XR
The Garmin Live Scope XR is new on the market and gives you the ability to see real-time images of fish like never before. These images allow anglers to see up to 500 feet in front of, or below, the boat. That’s double what you’ll see with the competing systems for sale! This scope is also compatible with a range of Garmin’s GPSMAP and ECHOMAP systems.
