Part Number: 010-00612-00

Overview

The slim-line, freshwater GPSMAP 530 flush-mounts easily in your boat and sports preloaded, detailed maps for U.S. inland lakes. The 530 also features a 5” QVGA display and simple, straightforward buttons and menus. You can add the optional BlueChart g2 Vision SD™ card for even more enhanced features.

Navigate Any Lake

The 530 comes preloaded with detailed maps for U.S. inland lakes, including 5300 lakes with shoreline, depth contours, navaids, and more. Over 300 of these lakes are enhanced with extra Inland Lakes Vision features (see below). For areas outside the U.S., the 530 has a worldwide basemap with satellite images in place of more traditional maps. The SD card slot makes it easy to add additional maps without connecting to a computer. And with just a few buttons and a simple, intuitive interface, the 530 makes navigating your way through the water easy.

The 530 boasts advanced Inland Lakes Vision features for 300 of the most popular lakes.

  • MarinerEye view and FishEye view provide you a 3-dimensional perspective of map information, both above and below the waterline.
  • Higher-resolution satellite images help you orient yourself in unfamiliar areas.
  • Auto guidance technology searches through map data to suggest the best passage.

Add Sonar and Weather

The sounder version, GPSMAP 530s, comes with a powerful dual frequency or dual beam transducer that clearly paints depth contours, fish targets and structure. It’s also CANet™ compatible, so you can share sounder data with another chartplotter on your boat. For continuously-updated weather information, you can add the optional GXM 31 antenna to receive XM satellite weather, including NEXRAD radar, and hundreds of XM radio stations right on your chartplotter.

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 for offshore use, including advanced 3-D perspective, Auto guidance, high-resolution satellite images, detailed fishing charts and more.
