Garmin 7000 series puts networking at your fingertips

Marine electronics and navigation guru, Errol Cain has supervised the installation of marine electronic systems into thousands of luxury cruisers in his 21 years experience. This month Errol shares his knowledge and experience on the Garmin 7000 series.

The new Garmin GPSMAP 7000 series provides some of the most striking marine cartographic technology ever seen in this class of equipment.

Marine navigation continues to develop with these new top-of-the-line Garmin network chartplotters.

Featuring a touchscreen interface, the 7000 series ranges in size from 12.1 to 15 inches and sets a new standard in speed and performance from a marine multifunction display (MFD).

Boat owners can expect smoother graphics, faster panning, and an almost seamless map presentation from the 7000 series and Garmin G MotionTM technology. Its new sleek and stylish design compliments all of today’s modern nav-stations and offers expanded ‘plug-and-play’ access to onboard sensors, with NMEA 2000 and Garmin Marine Network connectivity.

This makes it easy to access and control a whole array of network assets from any compatible plotter on your boat: Everything from engine sensors to onboard radar, digital sonar, AIS traffic monitoring, live-cam security video, and more. Garmin networking puts it all at your fingertips.

All GPSMAP 7000 series chartplotters accept optional BlueChart® g2 Vision® cards, allowing you to access premium features such as true 3D Mariner’s Eye View and underwater Fish Eye View perspectives, plus Auto Guidance capability which recommends the best passages with marine points-of-interest (POI) location data. The Garmin GPSMAP 7000 series: Today’s new high water mark in network navigation and data access.
