Stocks in this article: GRMN

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced a new series of combination chartplotters with built-in scanning sonar capability and the ability to network with pre-existing combination units. The GPSMAP 800 and 1000 series provide pivotal features beneficial for boaters of any type.

“This new GPSMAP series is going to appeal to anglers and boaters of all types,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of worldwide sales. “Whether you’re looking to network with other Garmin combo units on your boat or simply wanting pivotal navigational and sailing information at your fingertips, the feature-rich GPSMAP 800 and 1000 series is versatile no matter what you do on the water.”

The GPSMAP 800 and 1000 series are combination chartplotter and fishfinder units that boast vibrant 8-inch and 10-inch displays, respectively. With an intuitive keyed interface, the new GPSMAP 800 and 1000 series provides the angler with a complete solution by complementing existing new GPSMAP 500 and 700 series combination units. Equipped with built-in 1kW traditional sonar capability, built-in CHIRP and newly announced DownVü and support for SideVü with CHIRP (GCV™ 10 required), the GPSMAP 800 and 1000 series allow the angler to have a near-picture quality view of what’s below and to the sides of the boat.

Available with a worldwide base map or pre-loaded with U.S. coastal BlueChart® g2 and LakeVü™ HD cartography, the GPSMAP 800 and 1000 series offer benefits to boaters, anglers and sailors of all types. In addition, the GPSMAP 800 and 1000 series adds radar and networking capabilities and is available in a non-sonar version if navigation is the primary goal.

The new GPSMAP 800 and 1000 series will be available in Q1 of 2014. For a full list of features and more information, go to www.garmin.com/marine2014.
