Quick reference guide
FeaturesThe Garmin GPSMAP 620 gives you a marine and automotive mode, so it’s just as strong
on the road as it is on the water. You also get a high-sensitivity receiver, and a
case with a waterproof design.
When you use the marine mount, you get easy access to your marine data. And, when you
use the optional automotive mount and City Navigator NT for North America map data,
your GPSMAP 620 automatically shifts to automotive mode. The GPSMAP 620 has a vivid
5.2-inch WNGA touchscreen display and an easy-to-use interface. It’s also preloaded
with a worldwide satellite basemap so you’ll see vivid space images of all the
surface features around you.
When you’re on your boat, the GPSMAP 620 gives you both Mariner’s and Fish eye view,
which lets you see what’s going on both above and below the waterline. The Auto
Guidance feature searches chart data to offer you the best passage through BlueChart
g2 Vision data. The GPSMAP 620 is NMEA-0183 compliant, so you can add it to an
existing marine network. Plus, you’ll always be on point with access to fishing
charts, tide and current data, marine services coastal roads and more with the
BlueChart g2 Vision data.
When you’re back in your car, GPSMAP 620’s automotive mode tells you where to go with
turn-by-turn directions with verbalized street names (with the required City
Navigator NT for North America data). And, route planning is easy, so you’ll have no
problem planning your trip. Use your GPSMAP 620 to create custom points of interest
and set up proximity alerts so you know what’s ahead before you get there.
