Explore the Seas

The GPSMAP 546 comes ready to go with preloaded U.S. coastal area map data. For areas outside the U.S., the GPSMAP 546 has a worldwide basemap with satellite images in place of more traditional maps. The GPSMAP 546 also comes standard with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver for superior satellite tracking and quicker acquisition times. In addition, the GPSMAP 546 can receive U.S. graphical weather data via optional GXM™ 51 satellite receiver/antenna (sold separately). And with an SD™ card slot, it’s easy to add additional maps without connecting to a computer.
