When only the best will do, the Garmin GPSMAP 8000 series is for you. The ultimate in glass-helm technology, this multi-touch multi-function display can handle all your needs on the water. This Garmin GPSMAP 8530 is a black-box processor with pre-loaded BlueChart g2 (United States Great Lakes, Atlantic Coast, Gulf Coast and Pacific Coast) and is best used with Garmin's GMM series marine monitors. Customize your system based on your needs: in addition to GPS, there are sonar, radar, satellite weather modules, and more!

Full System Integration

Integrates everything, including various sonar technologies, integrated autopilot, connectivity, apps, engine data and multi-media. SmartMode control allows the user to quickly change all screens at a helm in sync to a preset mode. Everything you need is at the tip of your finger, all on one screen.

Customize Layouts with SmartMode Control

SmartMode control allows you to switch all monitors in sync from one mode to another without manually switching each monitor separately. Fully customizable layouts, data and gauges allow you to place the information you need to see right where you want it.

Includes BlueChart g2

BlueChart g2 marine maps feature crisp labeling and an overall smooth presentation on your chartplotter display. In addition to the basic charts, tidal stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols and included fishing charts, BlueChart g2 offers smooth transitions between zoom levels and seamless continuity across chart boundaries. Covered by the exclusive New Chart Guarantee. Main coverage includes the United States East Coast, West Coast, Gulf Coast and Great Lakes, as well as some detail for Alaska, Hawaii and the Bahamas.
