The Ultimate Connected Boating App
Built in Wi-Fi gives you access to the free all-in-one ActiveCaptain™ app, so
you can manage your marine experience from nearly anywhere. It creates a
simple yet powerful connection between your compatible mobile device and your
Garmin chartplotter, 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. You can also
plan a trip or prefish a lake, and ActiveCaptain will automatically sync with
your chartplotter. Even get notifications for software updates, and decide
when to download them on your device.
Enhanced Auto Guidance
Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto
Guidance² technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a
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
Simplified SOS Calling
This exclusive SOS safety assist feature makes it easier for anyone – even
those not familiar with marine electronics or radio protocols – to quickly
call for Coast Guard help in an emergency. By simply tapping the SOS button on
the chartplotter’s touchscreen display, your networked Garmin VHF radio will
automatically tune to the Channel 16 emergency frequency and a list of
possible situations (fire, man overboard, etc.) will be displayed. Once the
applicable choice has been selected, the screen will provide a Coast Guard
approved VHF radio distress call script, along with the ship’s current
lat/long GPS coordinates, that can be read off to responders – thus saving
time, averting panic, and providing the essential information needed by
rescuers to assure the best possible outcome.
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
than ever to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter, via
industry-standard GPX software formatting. GPX is an open standard format for
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.
Special Sailing Features
To help you gain a wind-maximizing competitive edge, your chartplotter
features a pre-race guidance page that shows your virtual starting line, along
with data fields showing laylines, time to burn before the start and a race
timer that can be synchronized across all your networked Garmin GPS products.
In addition, other supported sailing features include an enhanced wind rose,
heading and course-over-ground lines, set and drift, true and apparent wind
data and more. You can also use available built-in wireless connectivity to
access and control a variety of marine-specific apps via compatible
smartphones or tablets.

well as multiple video streams on the same screen. Use an Axis encoder to
convert analog camera, such as Garmin GC 10, to video over IP.
Catch All the Action On the Water
This chartplotter supports wireless connections to Garmin VIRB® X
and XE action cameras so you can catch all the action during your
time on the water. More importantly, with a simple software update, you can
control recordings, take still pictures, and stream video from a VIRB X/XE
action camera to your GPSMAP® 7400/7600
series chartplotter or 8000/8400/8600 series Glass Helm chartplotter. In fact,
you can stream video from up to 4 VIRB X/XE action cameras and view the video
on a compatible marine chartplotter. You can even view previously captured
images and videos on the chartplotter and display thumbnail previews for easy
selection. Control play, pause, seek and replay from your chartplotter.
There’s even an automatic slide show mode and the ability to delete unwanted
VIRB images or videos. Each VIRB can be named for easy identification. You can
also control your VIRB cameras to change VIRB video settings, including aspect
ratio, video resolution, frames per second, photo size, field of view and more
— directly from the marine chartplotter. Send NMEA 2000 boat information from
