Just Add Monitors
Give your vessel tremendous capabilities and features that are fully
integrated across your entire marine system. This black box system is
compatible with Garmin marine monitors or third-party touchscreen monitors
(sold separately), allowing you to add to your current helm configuration or
build a beautiful, new fully integrated glass helm.
Build Your Fully Integrated Marine System
The GPSMAP 8700 black box allows you to add and integrate multiple sonar
technologies as well as autopilot, connected services, apps, engine data and
multimedia at your helm. You can also automatically sync your personal
preferences and user data for all networked chartplotters across multiple
helms. Everything you need can conveniently be found at your fingertips — on
any touchscreen. NMEA 2000® networking and the Garmin Marine Network allow you
to easily build your full marine electronics suite — from radar and 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 — to your touchscreen monitor.
Pair with GPS 19x 10 Hz GPS and GLONASS Receiver
The GPSMAP 8700 black box can pair with our GPS 19x external 10 Hz GPS and
GLONASS receiver (sold separately) to update your position and heading 10
times per second. It displays a more fluid vessel movement and dramatically
improves your ability to accurately mark and navigate to 5,000 waypoints.
Requires Garmin Card Reader
The Garmin Card Reader (sold separately) provides convenient remote
mounting and a single access point for 2 SD™ card slots for mapping. You can
add multiple card readers for additional access points. A water-resistant
magnetic door allows card reader to be mounted horizontally or vertically.
Add Garmin Charts or Maps with Navionics Data
Upgrade your maps with the most detailed, clear and concise charts and
maps. Just add accessory map purchases such as BlueChart g3 and BlueChart g3
Vision coastal cartography and LakeVü g3 and LakeVü g3 Ultra inland mapping
featuring Navionics data and Auto Guidance¹ technology. Auto Guidance
technology uses your specified depth and overhead clearance to easily
calculate routes and see a suggested path to follow. It’s also compatible with
Quickdraw Contours software so you can instantly create personalized fishing
maps on-screen with 1’ contours as you fish.
