Three-In-One GPS From Garmin
Garmin GPS claims all-in-one solution for navigation on land and sea – but at a price
A portable touchscreen GPS navigator from Garmin accepts marine charts, and can also utilise street and topographic maps, but comes with a $1,200 price tag.
Mariners will also benefit from the auto guidance technology the g2 Vision data card provides, which suggests the best navigational route on the market, says Garmin. In addition, photo references give detail aerial views of points of interest (POI) such as ports, marinas, waterways and landmarks. When boaters are ready to pack up and hit the road, the GPSMAP 620 snaps off its marine mount. When placed in the automotive mount, and transitions into an automotive navigator. When used with optional City Navigator or TOPO Australia, on the road, this device gives voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions, advising you to “Turn right on Main Street.” In planning a route, users can search for a local bait shop or the best resorts around town and the GPSMAP will lead the way. With the GPSMAP 620, users can also create custom points of interest and set up proximity alerts for the ultimate in driver awareness. RRP $1,200
