The Garmin GPSMAP 8400/8600 Series has a large-format multi-function display features a 24-inch full HD screen with touch control. Sunlight-readable, anti-glare display is exceptionally easy to view and also includes auto-dimming feature for use in low light or at night. New maximum glass design enables you to experience a beautifully powerful, completely networked helm at your fingertips. In-plane switching (IPS) LCD display — an industry first for this class — provides consistent, accurate colors from all viewing angles. It also provides standard USB touch output for use as a touchscreen monitor for Windows® and Mac® operating systems. Install multiple displays with the industry’s lowest flush-mount profile or flat mount them edge-to-edge to create a sleek glass helm look. Quick, 1-touch access to the information you need makes boating easier.
Preloaded, Blue Chart g2 charts for the coastal U.S., Canada and Bahamas are included. In addition to the basic charts, tidal stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols and included fishing charts, Blue Chart g2 offers smooth transitioning between zoom levels and more seamless continuity across chart boundaries. You can customize your screens with Shallow Water Shading, which allows you to shade all depth contours shallower than what you determine is your safe depth. Fishing charts emphasize bathymetric contours with less visual clutter on the display. And there’s also a choice of standard 2-D direct overhead or 3-D “over-the-bow” map views for easier chart reading and orientation.
GPSMAP 8624 integrates various sonar technologies as well as autopilot, connectivity, apps, engine data and multi-media. User data can be automatically synced for all networked 8400/8600 series chartplotters across multiple helms — everything you need is at your fingertips, all on 1 screen. A full digital switching system uses CZone technology. You can power up your boat while away from the dock, switch on pumps and control lights — even underwater lights. Nearly all of your controls are available right at your fingertips either at the helm or programmed into a remote key fob or an app on your tablet provided by CZone by Mastervolt.
