GPSMAP® 525/525s

Part Number: 010-00597-00

Overview

This slim chartplotter boasts the brightest, sharpest and most colorful graphics you’ve ever seen on a 5" (12.7 cm) screen. The GPSMAP 525 has a crisp VGA display; built-in, worldwide satellite-enhanced 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

The 525’s worldwide basemap includes realistic satellite imagery that shows up clearly on its crisp, ultra-bright screen. The SD card slot makes it easy to add additional maps without connecting to a computer. And with a simple, intuitive interface and high-speed processor, the 525 makes navigating easy.

Add Sonar

Where applicable, the sounder version, GPSMAP 525s, 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. It’s also 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.
