Serious cruisers, sailors and sail racers demand serious
equipment. The easy-to-use, easy-to-install GPSMAP 8616 chartplotter delivers
MFD performance in a combo-size package. It features a 16” full HD IPS
touchscreen display for wider viewing angles, superior clarity and sunlight
readability, even with polarized sunglasses. Multiple displays can be flat
mounted edge-to-edge to create a sleek glass helm look or can be mounted

autopilots to cameras, instruments and forward-looking sonar — controlled from
your chartplotter and shared across multiple screens. In addition, our
exclusive OneHelm™ system coordinates many third-party manufactured onboard
marine products to bring full control of systems — such as digital switching,
lighting, stabilization and more — conveniently to your chartplotter screen.
The GPSMAP 8616 chartplotter has a premium-performance
processor that enables fast map drawing, superior networking, video
distribution and more. Built-in Wi-Fi technology lets you pair with the free
ActiveCaptain® app for access to OneChart™, smart notifications¹, Garmin
Quickdraw™ community data and more. You can also control video streaming from
our GC™ 100 wireless camera and VIRB® action cameras. In addition, built-in
ANT wireless technology connects you directly to our quatix® marine
watch, gWind™ Wireless 2 transducer and wireless remote controls.
SmartMode Station Controls
Networked sonar, radar, cameras, media and digital
switching can be independent or incorporated into SmartMode station controls.
With SmartMode, everything is designed to give you quick, one-touch access to
the information you need to ease high-stress situations such as docking.
