Overview

An Amazing Chartplotter/Sounder Combo

  • 5" VGA display
  • 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver
  • HD-ID™ sonar
  • Wireless connectivity
  • Includes both BlueChart® g2 U.S. coastal and LakeVü™ HD U.S. inland mapping
GPSMAP® 547xs

The premier 5-inch Garmin GPSMAP 547xs chartplotter/sonar combo with VGA display includes both BlueChart g2 U.S. coastal and LakeVü HD U.S. inland mapping. Whether it is flat-, flush- or bail-mounted, it will be the focal point of your helm. And of course, it’s powerfully simple to use.

With the integration of a 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver, the 547xs refreshes position and heading up to 10 times per second. It displays constant and fluid on-screen location and proves to be incredibly accurate when marking waypoints and navigating.

Built-in wireless connectivity allows you to connect to and access marine-specific apps via smartphone or tablet.

Extreme Sonar Capabilities

The built-in sonar capabilities of the GPSMAP 547xs gives you the freedom and flexibility to choose from several optional transducers, including50/200 kHz, 77/200 kHz, DownVü scanning sonar and CHIRP. It also will support Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motor transducers.

Allow networked combos to share their internal sonar with any other device on the network. The 547xs lso includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat's position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software.

CHIRP Support

When used with a compatible CHIRP transducer (sold separately), GPSMAP 820xs displays crystal-clear sonar images detailing fishing hot spots, ship wreckage or a diving location. With Garmin CHIRP technology, you get remarkable target separation and resolution at extraordinary depths, and can dial into specific frequencies to target certain species of sport fish. Bottom contours are more visible, even at speed, and signal noise can be suppressed at greater depths to provide a more timely interpretation of what’s below for safer navigation and better fishing.

NMEA 2000® Support

This combo allows you to add more capabilities to your boat. It provides NMEA 2000 support so you can see valuable information on your screen for Garmin autopilot, engine data, SiriusXM Weather radar and more.

Networking

The GPSMAP 847xs offers select networking capabilities that allow you to share features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as supplemental maps, and user data, including waypoints, routes and tracks. User data can be automatically synced with other chartplotters in the network.

Special Sailing Features

Supported sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider. Gauge displays are designed to provide important need-to-know information at a glance, including true and apparent wind angle, set and drift, true or apparent wind speed, horizontal or vertical graphs, and a data bar with customizable data fields.

GND™ 10 Black Box Interface

The GND 10 black box interface seamlessly integrates Nexus instruments and sensors with the Garmin family. It converts data between the Nexus network and NMEA 2000 to provide trouble-free compatibility between Nexus and Garmin products, including gWind™ and gWind Race wind transducers.

Compatible with gWind Transducers

Garmin gWind, gWind Wireless and gWind Race transducers feature twin-fin technology with 3-bladed propeller. Connect to the NMEA 2000 and compatible Garmin chartplotters via the GND 10 black box bridge.

View and Control Your Device from a Smartphone or Tablet

Garmin Helm™ allows you to view and control your compatible Garmin chartplotter from an iPhone® or iPad® or phone, or phone or tablet using Android™ — while providing enhanced situational awareness for the mariner. Easily switch between portrait and landscape mode to accommodate mounting preferences. Using your iPhone or iPad, you can even record a movie of your chartplotter screen to share with friends and family. Download from the App Store™ or Google Play™ today.

Get Your Apple® Device Onboard with BlueChart® Mobile

With BlueChart Mobile, a free app downloaded from the App Store, you can plan marine routes on your iPad or iPhone then wirelessly transfer them to your boat’s compatible networked Garmin chartplotter. Even if you don’t have a Garmin chartplotter, you can still take advantage of the tremendous features of BlueChart on your Apple device.

Enhanced Auto Guidance

Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto Guidance technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a safe virtual pathway on the display that helps you avoid low bridges, shallow water and other charted obstructions en route.

Better still, with enhanced Version 2.0, you now have access to even more features and capabilities. You’re able to adjust the calculated Auto Guidance pathway by inserting “via” points at interim stops or landmarks along your desired route. You can easily review hazard points along your calculated path. And you can even engage your compatible Garmin autopilot to follow the Auto Guidance route, automatically. Other 2.0 enhancements give you the ability to calculate arrival times at any point on your route (great for timing arrivals to correspond with bridge openings and other time-critical events). Better still, you can now save your plotted Auto Guidance paths for future navigation by backing them up on an SD™ card with your BlueChart® g2 Vision® or Lake Vü™ HD Ultra cartography¹.

GPX Waypoints Transfer

If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturer’s GPS product – or on a Garmin handheld device –  now it’s easier than ever to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter, via industry-standard GPX software formatting. GPX is an open standard format for GPS data exchange across platforms and applications. With this easy-to-use interface technology, Garmin has taken “no waypoint left behind” to a whole new level of trade-up convenience.
