True Dual-Channel 1 kW CHIRP CHIRP is the most sophisticated sonar technology available for use by the fishing and boating public. CHIRP is an acronym for Compressed High-Intensity Radiated Pulse. What it means to you is much better target resolution, clarity and crispness than any other sonar system. Having Garmin true dual 1 kW CHIRP as your traditional sonar allows you to adjust CHIRP frequencies to low/medium, low/high, medium/high to further optimize your sonar performance.
