GPSMAP 527 allows for easy visibility, day or night. Whether it is flat-, flush- or swivel-mounted, it will be the focal point of your helm. It includes our hallmark user-friendly interface as well as a worldwide basemap.
With the integration of a 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver, the 527 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 and navigating to any one of 5,000 user-created waypoints.
Built-in wireless connectivity allows you to connect to and access marine-specific apps via your smartphone or tablet.
