GPSMAP 527xs combination chartplotter/sounder with preloaded worldwide basemap allows for easy visibility, day or night. Whether it is flat-, flush- or swivel-mounted, it will be the focal point of your helm. And of course, it’s powerfully simple to use.
With the integration of a 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver, the 527xs refreshes position and heading up to 10 times per second. It displays constant and fluid on-screen location and proves to be incredibly accurate when marking waypoints and navigating.
Built-in wireless connectivity allows you to connect to and access marine-specific apps via smartphone or tablet.
Extreme Sonar Capabilities
The built-in sonar capabilities of the GPSMAP 527xs gives you the freedom and flexibility to choose from several optional transducers, including 50/200 kHz, 77/200 kHz, ClearVü scanning sonar and CHIRP. It will also support Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motor transducers.
Allow networked combos to share their internal sonar with any other device on the network. The 527xs 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.
When used with a compatible CHIRP transducer (sold separately), GPSMAP 527xs 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.
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 and more.
The GPSMAP 527xs 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, including waypoints, routes and tracks. User data entered into 1 chartplotter can be automatically synced with other chartplotters in a network.
Add Extras with BlueChart g2 Vision
With the optional BlueChart g2 Vision SD™ card, you can add a whole new dimension of exceptional features to your chartplotter.
- MarinerEye view and FishEye view provide a 3-D perspective of map information, both above and below the waterline.
- High-resolution satellite images and aerial photographs help you orient yourself in unfamiliar areas.
- Auto Guidance technology searches through all relevant charts to create a route you can actually follow — one that avoids obstacles, shallow water, buoys and other obstructions.
