Garmin GPSMAP 620
The Garmin GPSMAP 620 marine GPS chartplottter/navigator has been designed to be used for both on the water and on the road. Modelled around the mutil-award winning Garmin nuvi sat nav series, the GPSMAP 620 features a 5.3-inch WVGA touchscreen display, is waterproof to IPX7 standards and has a high-sensitivity GPS receiver.
The GPSMAP 620 is preloaded with a worldwide basemap as standard. However with optional BlueChart g2 or g2 Vision mapping you can get fishing charts, tide and current data, marine services and coastal roads. The GPSMAP 620 is NMEA compliant so you can add it to your existing marine network.
There is a range of accessories for the 620 including marine mounts and car mounts. The mounts make the device easy to plug and play when using between a car and a boat.
The GPSMAP 620 has two different modes, these are marine mode and automotive mode. When the unit is switched on a symbol appears on the screen depicting which mode is currently selected.
When marine mode is selected and you are using BlueChart g2 Vision charts you can benefit from the 3D MarinerEye and FishEye which show views above and below the waterline respectively. There is also an Auto Guidance feature that helps guide you around hazards along your route.
When the 620 is in automotive mode and you are using a City Navigator NT SD card you get turn-by-turn directions on the road and it even speaks street names. Program in your route and the 620 will find the quickest, most efficient route. The 620 features custom points of interest and proximity alerts to be told about places you may want to stop at in the road ahead.
