Get Your Apple Device Onboard With BlueChart Mobile
With BlueChart Mobile, a free app downloaded from the App Store, you can plan marine routes on your iPad or iPhone and then wirelessly transfer them to your boat's compatible networked Garmin chartplotter. Even if you don't have a Garmin chartplotter, you can still take advantage of the tremendous features of BlueChart on your Apple device.
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.
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. With this easy-to-use interface technology, Garmin has taken "no waypoint left behind" to a whole new level of trade-up convenience.
Panoptix Down Transducer
With 1 Panoptix Down transducer, you get 3 remarkable views that allow you to actually see fish and bait swimming around under your boat - in real time. You can even see fish in the water column in 3D, from the bottom to the surface. You can be stationary and still see things in 3D below your boat.
