Designed for – sportfishermen, cruisers, sailors and sailing racers who demand high performance, ease of operation and feature integration in a chartplotter/sonar combo.
The 12″ multi-touch widescreen GPSMAP 7612xsv combo includes built-in dual CHIRP sonar plus CHIRP ClearVü and CHIRP SideVü scanning sonar with the clearest images on the water.
Its internal 10 Hz GPS. GPSMAP 7612xsv is fully network capable, including Garmin Network and NMEA 2000, and offers the conveniences of built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity.
Fully network capable – including Garmin Marine Network and NMEA 2000 for components such as radar, autopilot,
instruments, multiple screens, FUSION-Link™, sensors, black box sonar, digital switching, thermal cameras, IP cameras, weather, GRID and more.
This series also offers an SOS safety feature, an onboard PDF user manual and you can also import and export waypoints and routes via GPX.
Special sailing features – include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider. Gauge displays provide key information at a glance.
A new pre-race guidance page shows your virtual starting line on the chart, 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.
Built-in sonar capabilities – The GPSMAP 7612xsv includes a 1kW dual CHIRP sonar, the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public.
Dual CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than CHIRP.
It gives you the ability to show low/high, med/high or low/med on the screen at the same time, enhancing your ability to distinguish between game fish and balls of bait fish.
Includes CHIRP ClearVü and CHIRP SideVü – A scanning sonar that provide nearly photographic sonar images of fish and structure that passes below and to the sides of your boat.
ClearVü and SideVü provide the clearest scanning sonar images on the water.
Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® – Also supported are 50 kHz/200 kHz, 77 kHz/200 kHz transducers for Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motors (sold separately).
Sonar-Recording – capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat’s position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software.
Preloaded BlueChart g2 maps – In addition to basic charts, tidal stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols and included fishing charts, BlueChart g2 offers smooth transitioning between zoom levels and more seamless continuity across chart boundaries.
You can customize your screens with Safety Shading that allows you to shade all depth contours shallower than your boat’s safe depth. Fishing charts emphasize bathymetric contours with less visual clutter on the display.
There’s also a choice of standard 2-D direct overhead or 3-D “over-the-bow” map views for easier chart reading and orientation.
Preloaded LakeVü HD Maps – These highly detailed freshwater maps 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; excellent detail of underwater features.
Shallow Water Shading allows you to designate a minimum depth; interstates, highways, general roads and bridges; designated fishing areas; and points of interest, such as docks, boat ramps, marinas and campgrounds.
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. Get notifications for software updates, and decide when to download them on your device.
Enhanced Auto Guidance – Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto Guidance² technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a virtual pathway on the display.
Setup a route to avoid low bridges, shallow water and other charted obstructions en route.
Map & Sonar Sharing – Ability to share Mapping & Internal sonar with the following devices:
