It even supports Panoptix all-seeing sonar, premium Garmin sonar modules and a wide range of transducers (sold separately)
- Preloaded with Exceptional Garmin Cartography: LakeVu g3 inland maps and BlueChart g3 coastal charts provide industry-leading coverage, clarity and detail with integrated Garmin and Navionics data and Auto Guidance1 technology. LakeVü g3 and BlueChart g3 include Auto Guidance1, which uses your desired depth and overhead clearance to calculate routes and provide a suggested path to follow. LakeVü g3 provides coverage on more than 17,000 lakes with up to 1’ contours. BlueChart g3 also includes NOAA raster cartography, available as a free downloadable feature via the ActiveCaptain app. Additionally, they both offer easy-to-use features such as Depth Range Shading and Shallow Water Shading, which let you view your target depth to avoid running aground
- Upgrade to Garmin's Best Maps on the Water: Accessory map purchases, such as LakeVü g3 Ultra or BlueChart g3 Vision, add even more features and detail to your maps and charts. LakeVü g3 Ultra and BlueChart g3 Vision add high-resolution relief shading, which provides an easy-to-interpret, clearer view of bottom structure than contour lines alone — plus many other chart and map-enhancing features
- Built-in Quickdraw Contours to Create Your Own HD Maps: Instantly create personalized HD fishing maps onscreen with 1’ contours. Tailor them to fit your needs. These are your maps — you own them. Keep the data to yourself, or share it with the Quickdraw Community
- Build Your Marine System: The touchscreen combo is fully networked using the Garmin Marine Network, NMEA 2000/NMEA 0183, J1939 and built-in ANT connectivity, so you can build your marine system with radar, autopilot, sonar modules, instruments, sensors, FLIR cameras, FUSION-Link, VIRB camera streaming and more. Network sharing allows you to share data among all compatible units connected to the network
- 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 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
- Built-in SailAssist Features: To help you gain a wind-maximizing competitive edge, your chartplotter features a prerace guidance page. It 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
- Heading and Position Refreshed 10 Times Per Second: The fast, responsive 10 Hz GPS and GLONASS receiver refreshes your position and heading 10 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. Now, it’s quick and easy to drop up to 5,000 accurate waypoints and find your way back to them
