Garmin is pleased to announce the GPSMAP 520: a new plotter with a bright 5" QVGA display with worldwide satellite imagery and a new streamlined user interface.
Both the GPSMAP 520 and GPSMAP 520s feature crisp, sunlight readable VGA displays driven by high-speed processors. They offer exceptional detail, fast redraw rates, and the most realistic photo-enhanced cartography ever seen in their class of fixed-mount electronics. Options such as true 3D-view mapping, both above and below the waterline, plus available auto guidance safe-passage routings help simplify navigation. And an optional SD card slot makes it easy to plug in extra chart regions and features, as well as panoramic aerial photo reference.
