Special Sailing Features
Supported sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider. Gauge displays are designed to provide important need-to-know information at a glance, including true and apparent wind angle, set and drift, true or apparent wind speed, horizontal or vertical graphs, and a data bar with customisable data fields.
Garmin Marine Network and NMEA 2000 Support
Full-network compatibility allows you to add more capabilities to your boat. GPSMAP 7407 supports radar, autopilot, instruments, multiple screens, FUSION-Link, sensors, remote sonar modules, digital switching, thermal cameras, GRID rotary knob, joystick and keypad control, and more. GPSMAP 7407 allows you to share features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as radar, GSD 24, GSD 26 sonar modules, supplemental maps, and user data, including waypoints, routes and tracks. User data entered into 1 chartplotter can be automatically synced with other chartplotters in a network.
Heading and Position Refreshed 10 Times Per Second
Fast, responsive 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS refreshes your position and heading 10 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. It makes dropping up to 5,000 accurate waypoints - and finding your way back to them - quick and easy.
Compatible with gWind Transducers
Garmin gWind, gWind Wireless and gWind Race transducers feature twin-fin technology with 3-bladed propeller. Connect to the NMEA 2000 and compatible Garmin chartplotters via the GND 10 black box bridge.
FUSION-Link Entertainment System
Enjoy the ability to control all compatible FUSION-Link-enabled audio systems directly from your compatible chartplotter display.
Built-in Wi-Fi/ANT for use with BlueChart Mobile and Garmin Helm
View and Control Your Device from a Smartphone or Tablet
Garmin Helm allows you to view and control your compatible Garmin chartplotter from a compatible smartphone or tablet while providing enhanced situational awareness for the mariner. Easily switch between portrait and landscape mode to accommodate mounting preferences. When using an iPhone or iPad, you can even record a movie of your chartplotter screen to share with friends and family. Download from The App Store or Google Play.
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 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.
Enhanced Auto Guidance
Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto Guidance technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a safe 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 Ultra cartography.
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 (Ffire, 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.
Create your own HD maps
Quickdraw Contours is a free, easy-to-use software feature that is already installed on your Garmin. It instantly creates your very own personalised HD fishing maps with 1 foot contours. Tailor them to fit your needs. They're your maps. You own them. Keep the data to yourself or share it with the Quickdraw Community on Garmin Connect. There's no special surveying expertise required. You just fish while it creates maps. You don't have to wait around or send your files away like other mapping software requires - your results appear instantly. Use with any Garmin Panoptix, any HD-ID, any CHIRP-enabled, Garmin ClearVü transducer or NMEA 2000-compatible depth transducer.
Multiple Depth Range Shading
Designate up to 10 different depth ranges each with its own colour. Makes it easier to view target depths at a glance.
Commission Autopilot from Chartplotter
To make commissioning easier and more convenient, you can handle the entire autopilot commissioning process from your chartplotter screen.
Axis Camera Support
Garmin offers support for select select Axis cameras, which can be used for surveillance and situational awareness on vessels of any size. Our integration allows you to view video on every screen on your boat and, if you wish, view multiple streams on the same screen. You can control your camera's pinch-to-zoom and pan/tilt settings with gestures directly on the plotter screen. Use an Axis encoder to convert analog camera, such as Garmin GC 10, to video over IP.
AXIS and FLIR Camera Support
Garmin offers support for select Axis cameras, and for select FLIR cameras. These can be used for surveillance and situational awareness on vessels of any size. You can control your camera's pinch-to-zoom and pan/tilt settings with gestures directly on the plotter screen and view video on multiple screens as 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 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 action camera to your GPSMAP 7400 series chartplotter or 8000/8400 series Glass Helm chartplotter. In fact, you can stream video from up to 4 VIRB 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 the chartplotter to VIRB to be overlaid as G-Metrix data on the video using VIRB Edit or the VIRB mobile app. Some data requires optional accessories.
