Explore the Seas
The GPSMAP 551 comes ready to go with preloaded BlueChart® g2 for Australia and New Zealand. For all other areas, the GPSMAP 551 has a worldwide basemap with satellite images in place of more traditional maps. The GPSMAP 551 also comes standard with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver for superior satellite tracking and quicker acquisition times. And with an SD card slot, it’s easy to add additional maps without connecting to a computer.
Where applicable, the sounder version, GPSMAP 551s, comes with a powerful dual-frequency transducer that clearly illustrates depth contours, fish targets and structure whether you’re fishing in freshwater or off the coast. The GPSMAP 551 and GPSMAP 551s are also NMEA 2000-compatible for easy connectivity with sensors, instruments and future marine offerings.
