The versatile Garmin Striker 5CV is the perfect fishfinder for kayak anglers, shore fishermen, and weekend boaters who want a high-quality sonar system with reliable GPS and mapping capabilities.

Clear Scanning Sonar and CHIRP Traditional Sonar

The Striker 5CV includes a transducer that transmits two types of sonar – CHIRP traditional sonar and CHIRP ClearVü scanning sonar.

The scanning sonar delivers photographic-like images of the underwater environment with stunning clarity, so you can see fish, structures and bottom contour details. The Striker 5CV displays both the scanning sonar view and regular sonar view at the same time on the bright, 5″ color display. This dual imaging allows you to not only see fish arches, but to also visualize the fish swimming in relation to structures and cover below.

The built-in high-sensitivity GPS receiver enables you to mark and return to your favorite waypoints and fishing hot spots. It logs and displays helpful information like speed, distance traveled, time and temperature. The Striker 5CV comes preloaded with Garmin’s Quickdraw Contours software that allows you to instantly create maps with 1 foot contours as you’re fishing or paddling new waters.
