Garmin BlueChart g2 WAAS

Both the GPSMAP 525 and GPSMAP 525s 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.

In addition, the 525s model comes with a powerful built-in 1,000-watt RMS digital sonar - which can scan for fish, structure or other items of interest lurking as deep as 2,000 feet (610 meters). It's also CANet capable - so you can share the sonar picture with other plotter displays on your boat.

Enable the full functionality of the GPSMAP 525-series with the addition of a BlueChart g2 Vision SD card

BlueChart g2 Vision cards provide:

  • High-resolution satellite imagery when overlaid on the chart, will provide the mariner with unparalleled situational awareness
  • Aerial reference photography provides "real world" photos of ports, harbors, marinas, waterways, navigation landmarks and other points of interest, offering the mariner another powerful tool for navigating unfamiliar waters
  • Mariner's Eye view - Provides the mariner with a 3-D perspective of chart information for a quick, reliable and easy position fix.
  • Fish Eye view - 3D perspective below the water line for displaying bottom contours based on bathymetric charting data

Garmin GPSMAP 525, June 11, 2007
Tommi Nyberg
Garmin GPSMAP 525 is versatile yet very compact and highly usable device. It has very clear and crisp 5" VGA display that is well readable in direct sunlight. For full score, there could have been maybe bit more brighness reserve still but current specification is clearly ok for pleasant use. Installation and usage of the device is very easy and straightforward and the map views are excellent. Resolution of satellite imaginery & number of aerial photos are not yet on usable / satisfactory level on Finland area but those are not really needed for real usage of the device. For some reason, the device lost the GPS fix once and showed some sudden location offset at the beginning of the first trip but that did not happen again. Maybe I blocked the skyview myself as the device is installed next to steering wheel/rudder in the pedestrian guard. Another thing which I noticed is that the device really disturbs the compass somewhat but that was notified also in the user manual. Overall, I am very satisfied to my GPSMAP 525, especially it's display quality and ease of use. Definitely a good purchase if you seek compact and powerful chartplotter.
