GPSMAP® 520/520s

Part Number: 010-00610-00

Overview

This slim-line chartplotter flush-mounts easily in your boat and boasts an ultra-bright 5” (12.7 cm) QVGA display. The GPSMAP 520 also sports a built-in, satellite-enhanced worldwide basemap and simple, straightforward buttons and menus. You can add the optional BlueChart® g2 Vision® SD™ card for even more enhanced features.

Navigate with Ease

With just a few buttons and a simple, intuitive interface, the GPSMAP 520 makes navigating virtually effortless. And instead of a traditional basemap, the 520 has a basemap of worldwide satellite images. It also has an SD card slot so you can add additional detailed maps without connecting to a computer.

Add Sonar

Where applicable, the sounder version, GPSMAP 520s, comes with a powerful dual frequency transducer that clearly paints depth contours, fish targets and structure whether you’re fishing in freshwater or off the coast. The 520 and 520s also are CANet® compatible, so you can share sounder data with another chartplotter on your boat.

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 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 actually can follow — one that avoids obstacles, shallow water, buoys and other obstructions.

For a low cost option try BlueChart g2 cards.
