Garmin ECHOMAP UHD 93sv vs 94sv

by | Last updated: Feb 19, 2021

• COMPARISON •

How are they different?

Charts… The features and abilities are the same for each model except for one thing; Preloaded Maps.

  • The ECHOMAP UHD 93sv comes pre-loaded with LakeVü g3 inland maps.
  • While the ECHOMAP UHD 94sv is pre-loaded with BlueChart g3 Coastal.

 

l

UHD 93sv | LakeVü g3 Inland

 

The LakeVü g3 inland maps are advanced shallow freshwater fishing maps with excellent clarity and detail for more than 17,000 U.S. lakes.

LakeVü g3 features integrated Garmin and Navionics content with up to 1’ contours that provide a clearer view of the lake bottom layout.

Additional LakeVü g3 features include… Auto Guidance, Custom Depth Range Shading for target depths at a glance, and Shallow Water Shading to see shallow depths “user-defined” easily.

 

l

UHD 94sv | BlueChart g3 Coastal

 

The BlueChart g3 Coastal maps have excellent coverage, clarity, and detail. They cover U.S. coastal areas including the Bahamas. 

BlueChart g3 features integrated Garmin and Navionics data and shows up to 1’ contours providing a more accurate detail of the bottom structure for improved fishing charts and navigation in swamps, canals, and marinas. 

BlueChart g3 features also include… Auto Guidance, Depth Range Shading for target depths at a glance, and Shallow Water Shading to see shallow depths “user-defined” easily.

If you appreciate the familiar look of paper charts, BlueChart g3 offers raster cartography of NOAA-surveyed areas that can be downloaded for free via the ActiveCaptain app.

They can be displayed on your Chartplotter, including individual points of interest labeled with corresponding longitude and latitude information.

Garmin ECHOMAP UHD 93sv vs 94sv Which one Should I Choose

ECHOMAP UHD 93sv or UHD 94sv?

 

This one is pretty easy…

Since pre-loaded chart options are the only difference between the two, it all comes down to where you fish/boat more often.

Inland lakes or coastal/ocean?

  1. ECHOMAP UHD 93sv for Inland
  2. ECHOMAP UHD 94sv for coastal/ocean

Keep in mind that you can always add another MicroSD card with more charts if you need them.
