High-tech meets high-touch in Garmin's new flagship chartplotter lineup: The GPSMAP 5000 series. These sleek, visually stunning network plotters feature super-bright touchscreen multifunction displays (MFDs) with robust, fully waterproof construction. So, they're built to handle even the harshest marine environment. The new slim-line design gives all 5000 series units a "flat panel" look when flush mounted in cabin bulkheads or nav stations. The revolutionary new menu-driven user interface makes operating your entire Garmin Marine Network as easy as pointing your finger! Both MFDs offer built-in cartography, worldwide satellite imagery, and a new simplified user interface. The GPSMAP 5212 features a 12.1" XGA "big screen" touchscreen display. The slightly smaller GPSMAP 5208 is designed with an 8.4" diagonal VGA touchscreen display. The 5208 and 5212 MFDs are preloaded with highlydetailed BlueChartg2 marine cartography of the coastal United States - including Alaska, Hawaii and the Bahamas. This data provides detailed coastlines, shaded depth contours, navaids, port plans, wrecks, restricted areas and tide and current information. Plug in optional BlueChartg2 Vision cards to add true 3D-view detailed mapping capabilities (both above and below the waterline), plus helpful auto guidance, high-resolution satellite imagery detail, and "real picture" aerial photos of ports, harbors, marinas, waterways, navigation landmarks and other points of interest.
