Explore the Seas
The GPSMAP 556s comes ready to go with preloaded marine charts for Australia and New Zealand, or the U.K. and Ireland. For all other areas, the GPSMAP 556s has a worldwide basemap with satellite images in place of more traditional maps. The GPSMAP 556s 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.
The GPSMAP 556s comes with a powerful dual-frequency transducer that clearly illustrates depth contours, fish targets and structures whether you’re fishing in freshwater or off the coast. The GPSMAP 556s also is NMEA 2000®-certified for easy connectivity with sensors, instruments and future marine offerings.
Add Extras with BlueChart g2 Vision

MarinerEye view and FishEye view provide you 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.
