With the GPSMAP 2006 (shown) or 2006C onboard, you won't miss a thing. These chartplotters with built-in WAAS receivers can pinpoint your location to within three meters on average.

Whether you choose the 7.2-inch, crisp, 10-level grayscale, full VGA, or the 6.4-inch, 256-color TFT, you'll get outstanding contrast and resolution, even in direct sunlight. What better way to show off the built-in coastline detail and BlueChart® marine cartography available from optional data cards. This new seamless cartography from Garmin provides spot soundings, navaids, depth contours, port information and tidal predictions. The GPSMAP 2006 and 2006C are also compatible with many MapSource® products, including Fishing Hot Spots.
