Garmin GPSMAP 4208 Big-Screen Network Chartplotter with Pre-Loaded Coastal Maps
Hold on to your swim trunks - Garmin's kicking some serious sand into the faces of the competition. The new Garmin GPSMAP 4208 features a huge 8.4" VGA screen that comes pre-loaded with highly-detailed BlueChart g2 marine cartography of the coastal United States, to make it ready to use as a chartplotter out of the box. The features don't stop there, though - the GPSMAP 4208 is network-capable for sonar, radar, XM satellite weather and radio, and more!
Garmin International and Tiger GPS are pleased to introduce the GPSMAP 4208 and 4212. The power of networking meets the brilliance of great design in the new 4000-series chartplotters from Garmin. These big, bright multifunction displays (MFDs) combine video-quality resolution and luminous colour with the latest in sensor and data options - to serve as your all-in-one "nerve centers" for the Garmin Marine Network.
Both MFDs offer built-in cartography, worldwide satellite imagery, and a new simplified user interface. The GPSMAP 4212 features a 12.1" XGA "big screen" display and alphanumeric keypad. The slightly smaller GPSMAP 4208 is designed with an 8.4" diagonal VGA screen and does not have the alphanumeric keypad for data entry.
The 4208 and 4212 MFDs are preloaded with highly-detailed BlueChart g2 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 BlueChart g2 Vision cards to add true 3D-view detailed mapping capabilities (both above and below the waterline), plus helpful auto guidance, high-resolution photomapping detail, and "real picture" aerial photos of ports, harbors, marinas, waterways, navigation landmarks and other points of interest.
