Setting the Bow Offset

For forward view Panoptix™ transducers, you can enter a bow offset to compensate the forward distance readings for the transducer installation location. This allows you to view the forward distance from the bow instead of the transducer installation location.

This feature applies to Panoptix transducers in the Garmin FrontVü™, LiveVü Forward, and RealVü 3D Forward sonar views.

  1. Measure the horizontal distance Callout number 1 from the transducer to the bow.

  2. From an applicable sonar view, select Options > Sonar Setup > Installation > Bow Offset.
  3. Enter the distance measured, and select Done.

On the applicable sonar view, the forward range shifts by the distance you entered.
