Explore the Seas

The GPSMAP 551 comes ready to go with preloaded marine charts for the UK and Ireland. 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.

Add Sonar

The sounder version, GPSMAP 551s is compatible with an optional dual-frequency transducer for clear illustration of 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.
