ADVANCED NAVIGATION | Compact & Fast
Garmin GPSMAP 942xs – An advanced navigation solution in a 9″ very sunlight-readable touchscreen chartplotter. Building on the popularity of the 7-inch touchscreen that Garmin pioneered in 2010, the 942xs adds big value in a compact device.
Wireless – It features built-in wireless connectivity for Garmin mobile apps and VIRB® action camera integration, and a 10Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver for smooth on-screen navigation.
The Ultimate Connected Boating App – the free ActiveCaptain™ app, enables you to manage your marine experience from nearly anywhere. It creates a powerful connection between your compatible mobile device and your Garmin 942xs, 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. ActiveCaptain will automatically sync with your chartplotter, receive notifications for software updates, and decide when to download them on your device.
Networking – The 942xs is fully Garmin Marine Network capable which allows for sharing sonar, maps, user data, radar, IP cameras and PanoptixTM all-seeing sonar including Panoptix FrontVü collision avoidance sonar among multiple units. Plus, there’s NMEA® 2000 and NMEA 0183 support for autopilots, digital switching, weather, VHF, AIS and other sensors.
Anglers, cruisers and sailors alike will definately benefit from the 942xs built-in 1kW traditional CHIRP sonar and CHIRP ClearVüTM scanning sonar capability for a near-picture quality view of what’s beneath the boat. Preloaded premium mapping includes both BlueChart® g2 HD charts for the US, Canada and Bahamas and LakeVü HD maps.
A 9” Touchscreen Chartplotter Combo – that proves that advanced navigation does come in a compact package.
