Garmin HomePort Marine Planning Software Pre-Programmed Data Card
Before heading out on the open water, plan your voyage with Garmin HomePort — marine trip-planning software¹ that lets you plan and organize routes from the convenience of your computer. After the HomePort application has been installed on your PC, this 2 GB microSD/SD card can also be used to transfer the preloaded BlueChart maps from your chartplotter to your PC for use with HomePort.
Use your existing BlueChart preprogrammed card, or transfer the preloaded maps² directly from your chartplotter to an SD card. Then simply plug the card into your computer's card reader to start planning your voyage.
Navigating waters with no visible landmarks or shallow shorelines can be a daunting task for even the most experienced navigator. With your existing BlueChart data together with HomePort on your computer, you’ll have the ability to view map details such as underwater hazards and hidden obstacles and plan a route to avoid them.
HomePort also offers features such as depth profiles, distance and bearing measurements, and tidal predictions.
Manage Your Data
In addition to managing waypoints, routes and tracks, you can store information from past voyages right on your computer. HomePort will also help you create point-to-point routes, determine fuel usage and estimate your travel time for each leg of your route — saving you time and money.
View Marine Charts
It’s easy to browse and view chart detail on your computer screen and mark waypoints and other points of interest. When finished, send the data to an SD card or proprietary Garmin datacard to load into your compatible Garmin chartplotter or sounder.
