8.4″ VGA TOUCHSCREEN | PRELOADED CHARTS

 

The GPSMAP 5208 – brings advanced multi-function technologies to your fingertips with a 8.4″ VGA color screen and clear and easy touchscreen navigation interface.

Multiple network ports  makes for easy connection to a Garmin Marine Network enabling access to radar, digital sonar or multiple displays. Also includes video inputs to monitor your on-board security cameras. The GPSMAP 5000 series can show engine information, wind data and much more via compatible NMEA  2000 connections.

Bringing touchscreen control to shipwide connectivity, Garmin’s GPSMAP® 5000 series is where value and technology converge. With a hi-res display, this versatile multifunction display is the ideal “command center” for your Garmin Marine Network.

Plus, the revolutionary menu-driven interface has been upgraded with new Series 5.0 software for faster chart redraws, silky smooth panning and zooming, and more responsive control inputs. So now, operating your entire network as simple as pointing with your finger.

Comes preloaded with detailed U.S. coastal charts, providing offshore coverage for Alaska and Hawaii plus the Bahamas incorporating the latest BlueChart® g2 data: tides and currents, coastal roads, marine services, and more.

You can add additional map regions with optional BlueChart® g2 cards (sold separately) that provide basic 2D digital cartography. You can  also upgrade to higher-capability BlueChart® g2 Vision™ cards that let you access such premium features as true 3D MarinerEye or underwater FishEye map perspective – plus “real picture” aerial photo reference and Auto Guidance technology to suggest the best passageways on your charts.
