Garmin® Software Update Brings New Features To GPSMAP® And EchoMAP™ Series

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced an exciting software update for the GPSMAP xs and echoMAP series of combination chartplotter and fishfinder units. With this update, new features are made available to all users, providing essential boating data and sharing capabilities.

“We’re happy to offer so many new capabilities to new and existing GPSMAP xs and echoMAP owners,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of worldwide sales. “This software update benefits boaters, anglers and sailors of all types and provides features that allow for a better, more integrated experience on the water. Anglers can utilize great new networking and sharing capabilities while the sailor can determine more pivotal sailing data when they need it the most.”

Garmin has added an array of features to the new GPSMAP xs combination product line. Most notably, the new series will now be able to share supplemental maps and user data such as waypoints, routes, and tracks. This update will also provide selected networking capabilities to select devices allowing the boater to share features with other GPSMAP xs combo units such as radar and DownVü and SideVü sonar via GCV™ 10. In addition to networking, these units also will support a newly designed, high-resolution sea surface temperature feature.

For sailing customers, the full series of new GPSMAP xs products will come with a brand new suite of sailing features. On initial setup, the unit can be configured specifically to meet the sailor’s needs. This unlocks easy-to-use features such as laylines, which guide the user when to tack and gybe. The sailing package also includes simultaneous heading and course lines, a new wind rose that shows true/apparent wind simultaneously, and new sailing data fields. In conjunction with the new gWind™ transducers, sailors will have the most pivotal sailing information at their fingertips.
