The GPSMAP 551 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 551 has a worldwide basemap with satellite images in place of more traditional maps. The GPSMAP 551 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.
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 can actually follow — one that avoids obstacles, shallow water, buoys and other obstructions.
