The Ultimate Connected Boating App
Built in Wi-Fi gives you access to the free all-in-one ActiveCaptain™ app, so you can manage your marine experience from nearly anywhere. It creates a simple yet powerful connection between your compatible mobile device and your Garmin chartplotter, charts, maps and the boating community. Wherever you are, you´ll have unlimited access to your cartography, the ability to purchase new maps and charts and access to the Garmin Quickdraw™ Contours Community. Stay connected with smart notifications on your chartplotter screen. You can also plan a trip or prefish a lake, and ActiveCaptain will automatically sync with your chartplotter. Even get notifications for software updates, and decide when to download them on your device.
Built-in Sonar Capabilities
Right out of the box, you have access to some amazing sonar capabilities; all you have to add are transducers. Comes with built-in Garmin 1 kW CHIRP sonar, CHIRP ClearV¼ and CHIRP SideV¼ scanning sonar. It even supports Panoptix all-seeing sonar, premium Garmin sonar modules and a wide range of transducers (sold separately).
Networked combos can share their internal sonar with any other device on the network. You can also choose what information is overlaid on the sonar screen; for example, radar, time of day or GPS speed.
Heading and Position Refreshed 10 Times per Second
Fast, responsive built-in 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver refreshes your position and heading 10 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. It makes dropping up to 5,000 accurate waypoints — and finding your way back to them — quick and easy.
Preloaded with Exceptional Garmin Cartography
You get both LakeV¼ HD inland waters mapping and BlueChart g2 coastal charts covering the coastal U.S. (East Coast, West Coast, Gulf of Mexico, U.S. and the Canadian side of the Great Lakes).
LakeV¼ HD provides highly detailed freshwater maps that include 17,000+ U.S. lakes, rivers and reservoirs. Included in those are more than 13,000 HD lakes with 1-foot contours shoreline to shoreline. Upgrade to LakeV¼ HD Ultra with Max Def Lakes.
BlueChart g2 provides basic coastal charts, tidal and current stations, depth contours, IALA nav symbols and fishing charts.
Upgrade to Our Best Maps on the Water
Two SD™ card slots provide expandable memory for accessory map purchases, such as LakeV¼ HD Ultra or BlueChart g2 HD or BlueChart® g2 Vision® HD, which adds Garmin patented Auto Guidance and other great features.
Quickdraw Contours to Create Your Own HD Maps
Instantly create personalized HD fishing maps on screen with 1-foot contours. Tailor them to fit your needs. These are your maps — you own them. Keep the data to yourself, or share it with the Quickdraw Community on Garmin Connect™.
Built-in SailAssist Features
To help you gain a wind-maximizing competitive edge, your chartplotter features a pre-race guidance page that shows your virtual starting line along with data fields showing laylines, time to burn before the start and a race timer that can be synchronized across all your networked Garmin GPS products. In addition, other supported sailing features include an enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, set and drift, true and apparent wind data and more.
GPX Waypoints Transfer
If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturer's GPS product — or on a Garmin handheld device — it's easy to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter via industry-standard GPX software formatting.
