Garmin GPSMAP 172 GPS Chartplotter with External Antenna DISCONTINUED
Whether offshore or inland, navigating to your favorite destination has never been easier, thanks to Garmin's GPSMAP 172. This full-featured chartplotter includes the same user-friendly interface as its color counterpart, the GPSMAP 172C, but sports a high-resolution monochrome display and a price that's within any mariner's budget.
The Garmin GPSMAP 172 provides brand-new technology for all of your chartplotting needs!
Easy to Use
The GPSMAP 172 packs a built-in worldwide marine basemap, state-of-the-art processor with lightening-fast map redraw, and crisp, sunlight readable, 10-level grayscale display into a waterproof, space-saving console -- perfect for large crafts and small runabouts alike. Boaters will love its convenient, intuitive design including:
- Simple keypad with backlighting for easy operation.
- One knob, adjustable tilt and swivel mount so you can quickly pop it in and out.
- Front loading data cards for easy access.
Users can enhance basemap detail on the GPSMAP 172 by simply by plugging in data cards preprogrammed with BlueChart or Fishing Hot Spots detail or downloading data from optional MapSource CDs to an optional Garmin data card. BlueChart provides exceptional offshore marine coverage that includes shaded depth contours, navaids, shoreline, and more. For inland boating and fishing, the U.S. Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots CD and preprogrammed data cards are packed with inland lake maps, profiles, marinas, fishing areas and useful outdoor resources.
For added flexibility, mariners can upgrade the GPSMAP 172 to a full-fledged combination chartplotter/sounder at any time by adding a Garmin GSD 20 "black box" sonar and transducer.
