The The GPSMAP 820xs keyed chartplotter/sonar combo has a 8" colour SVGA display and comes preloaded with a worldwide basemap. HD-ID 1 kW sonar, CHIRP and ClearVü with CHIRP sonar technology are built-in allowing you the flexibility to choose from several optional transducers.
Extreme Sonar Capabilities
The built-in sonar capabilities of the GPSMAP 820xs gives you the freedom and flexibility to choose from several optional transducers, including traditional, CHIRP and all-in-one HD-ID/ClearVü scanning sonar with CHIRP technology. Add a GCV 10 black box sonar for both ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonar with CHIRP technology.
When used with a compatible CHIRP transducer, GPSMAP 820xs displays crystal-clear sonar images detailing fishing hot spots, ship wreckage or a diving location. With Garmin CHIRP technology, you get remarkable target separation and resolution at extraordinary depths, and can dial into specific frequencies to target certain species of sport fish. Bottom contours are more visible, even at speed, and signal noise can be suppressed at greater depths to provide a more timely interpretation of what's below for safer navigation and better fishing.
Super-fast 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS
High-sensitivity internal 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS provides position and heading updates 10 times per second. It displays fluid on-screen location and proves to be incredibly accurate when marking 5,000 waypoints and navigating.
NMEA 2000 Support
This combo allows you to add more capabilities to your boat. It provides NMEA 2000 support so you can see valuable information on your screen for Garmin autopilot, engine data, SiriusXM Weather radar and more.
Share Maps in the Quickdraw Community
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.
The GPSMAP 820xs offers select networking capabilities that allow you to share features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as radar, GCV 10 ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonar, supplemental maps, and user data, such as waypoints, routes and tracks.
Special Sailing Features
Supported sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, and true wind data fields.
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.
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.
