The GPSMAP 5208 features an unprecedented touchscreen interface, along with preloaded BlueChart® g2 maps of the U.S. coast and an 8.4" (21.34 cm) screen that makes navigation as easy as pointing your finger. By connecting to the Garmin Marine Network, you can add sonar, radar and weather. For even more advanced features, you can add the optional BlueChart® g2 Vision® card (sold separately).
View Detailed Graphics and Video
The GPSMAP 5208 features highly-detailed BlueChart g2 marine cartography of the coastal U.S., including Alaska, Hawaii and the Bahamas. For other areas, the 5208 has a worldwide basemap with high-quality satellite images in place of more traditional maps. With the SD™ card slot, you can add additional maps without having to connect to a computer.
The 5208’s large screen displays crisp, high-resolution graphics so you can easily see where you’re going. To keep tabs on your engine room or other area of your boat, you also can connect a live video feed with the 5208's video input/output options.
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.
Connect to the Garmin Marine Network
The 5208 connects easily to the high-speed Garmin Marine Network, so you can interface with additional MFDs and add remote sensors. Once connected, you can share information between the 5208 and other chartplotters on your boat. You also can add high-powered radar, sonar and XM satellite weather and radio to your system.
