Extreme Sonar Capabilities
The built-in sonar capabilities of the GPSMAP 1040xs gives you the freedom and
flexibility to choose from several optional transducers, including
traditional, CHIRP and
all-in-one HD-ID/ClearVü scanning sonar with
CHIRP technology. Add a GCV™ 10
scanning sonar module for both
ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonar with

It also includes 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™
When used with a compatible CHIRP transducer (sold separately), GPSMAP 1040xs
displays crystal-clear sonar images detailing fishing hot spots, ship wreckage
or a diving location. With Garmin CHIRP technology, you get remarkable target
separation and resolution at extraordinary depths, and can dial into specific
frequencies to target certain species of sport fish. Bottom contours are more
visible, even at speed, and signal noise can be suppressed at greater depths
to provide a more timely interpretation of what’s below for safer navigation
and better fishing.
Dynamic Sea Temperature
Set a range for sea temperatures, and it dynamically adjusts to display a
color range that can be used to target certain types of fish (Optional GXM™
Add your choice of marine radar, either open array or our new xHD dome radar
that pair ease of use with advanced open array features.
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 plus
Shallow Water Shading that 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.
Super-fast 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS
High-sensitivity internal 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS provides position and
updates 10 times per second. It displays fluid on-screen location and proves
to be incredibly accurate when marking waypoints and navigating.
NMEA 2000 Support
This combo allows you to add more capabilities to your boat. It provides NMEA
2000 support so you can see valuable information on your screen for Garmin
autopilot, engine data, SiriusXM Weather radar and more.

share features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as radar, GCV
10 ClearVü and SideVü scanning
sonar, supplemental maps, and user data, including waypoints, routes and
tracks. User data entered into 1 chartplotter can be automatically synced with
other chartplotters in a network.
Special Sailing Features
Supported sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and
course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider.
Gauge displays are designed to provide important need-to-know information at a
glance, including true and apparent wind angle, set and drift, true or
apparent wind speed, horizontal or vertical graphs, and a data bar with
customizable data fields.
GND™ 10 Black Box Interface
The GND 10 black
box interface seamlessly integrates Nexus
instruments and sensors with the
Garmin family. It converts data between the Nexus network and NMEA 2000 to
provide trouble-free compatibility between Nexus and Garmin products,
including gWind™ and gWind Race wind transducers.
Compatible with gWind Transducers
Garmin gWind, gWind Wireless and gWind Race transducers feature twin-fin
technology with 3-bladed propeller. Connect to the NMEA 2000 and compatible
Garmin chartplotters via the GND 10 black box bridge.
FUSION-Link Entertainment System
Enjoy the ability to control all compatible FUSION-Link-enabled audio systems
directly from your compatible chartplotter display.
View and Control Your Device from a Smartphone or Tablet
Garmin Helm™ allows you to view and control your compatible Garmin
chartplotter from an iPhone® or iPad® or phone, or phone or tablet using
Android — while providing enhanced situational awareness for the mariner.
Easily switch between portrait and landscape mode to accommodate mounting
preferences. Using your iPhone or iPad, you can even record a movie of your
chartplotter screen to share with friends and family. Download from the App
Store™ or Google Play™ today.
Get Your Apple® Device Onboard with BlueChart® Mobile
With BlueChart Mobile, a free app
downloaded from the App Store, you can plan marine routes on your iPad or
iPhone then wirelessly transfer them to your boat’s compatible networked
Garmin chartplotter. Even if you don’t have a Garmin chartplotter, you can
still take advantage of the tremendous features of BlueChart on your Apple
Enhanced Auto Guidance
Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto Guidance
technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a safe virtual
pathway on the display that helps you avoid low bridges, shallow water and
other charted obstructions en route.
Better still, with enhanced Version 2.0, you now have access to even more
features and capabilities. You’re able to adjust the calculated Auto Guidance
pathway by inserting “via” points at interim stops or landmarks along your
desired route. You can easily review hazard points along your calculated path.
And you can even engage your compatible Garmin autopilot to follow the Auto
Guidance route, automatically. Other 2.0 enhancements give you the ability to
calculate arrival times at any point on your route (great for timing arrivals
to correspond with bridge openings and other time-critical events). Better
still, you can now save your plotted Auto Guidance paths for future navigation
by backing them up on an SD™ card with your BlueChart® g2 Vision® or Lake Vü™ HD
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 – now it’s easier

GPS data exchange across platforms and applications. With this easy-to-use
interface technology, Garmin has taken “no waypoint left behind” to a whole
new level of trade-up convenience.
