Overview

8-inch Keyed Chartplotter/Sonar Combo for Cruising, Sailing or Fishing

  • Keyed chartplotter/sonar combo with 8-inch color SVGA display
  • Preloaded worldwide basemap
  • Built-in Garmin HD-ID™ and supports CHIRP and DownVü scanning sonar with CHIRP technology
  • High-sensitivity internal 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver
  • Supports all Garmin marine radar

The GPSMAP 820xs keyed chartplotter/sonar combo has a 8-inch color SVGA display and comes preloaded with a worldwide basemap. HD-ID, CHIRP and DownVü with CHIRP sonar technology are built-in, allowing you the flexibility to choose from several optional transducers. It also provides media integration and autopilot compatibility, radar support, and NMEA 2000® and wireless connectivity.

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/DownVü scanning sonar with CHIRP technology. Add a GCV™ 10 scanning sonar module for both DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar with CHIRP technology (sold separately).

Allow networked combos to share their internal sonar with any other device on the network. GPSMAP 820xs also gives you the flexibility to choose what information is overlaid on the sonar screen. For example, time of day or GPS speed.

It also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat's position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software

CHIRP Support

When used with a compatible CHIRP transducer (sold separately), 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.

Dynamic Sea Temperature

Set a range for sea temperatures, and it dynamically adjusts to display a color range that can be used to target certain types of fish (Optional GXM™ 52 required).

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 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.

Radar Support

Add your choice of marine radar, either open array or our new xHD dome radar that pair ease of use with advanced open array features.

Networking

The GPSMAP 820xs offers select networking capabilities that allow you to share features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as radar, GCV 10 DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar, 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.

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 customizable data fields.

GND™ 10 Black Box Interface

The GND 10 black box interface seamlessly integrates Nexus instruments and sensors with the Garmin family. It converts data between the Nexus network and NMEA 2000 to provide trouble-free compatibility between Nexus and Garmin products, including gWind™ and gWind Race wind transducers.

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.

Garmin Meteor™ Audio System

The Meteor 300 black box brings music to your boat controlled through your compatible chartplotter. Enjoy quick access to AM/FM radio tuner, media and volume plus streaming and control of other music sources via Bluetooth®. Easy plug-and-play NMEA 2000 connections.
