TFor a powerful, fully-integrated helm that gives your boat a gorgeous glass helm
look, look no further than the GPSMAP 8530 black box system. You’ll get pinch-to-zoom
technology on BlueChart g2 marine charts, along with SmartMode control when you use
your device with a Garmin marine 15- (XGA resolution), 17- (SXGA), or 19-inch (SXGA)
touchscreen monitor.

A touching experience

When you do connect to a Garmin marine monitor, you’ll love the full touchscreen
features, including pinch-to-zoom and other touch controls. You’ll see everything
perfectly clear with anti-glare and bright LED backlighting, so you can read your
monitors in bright sunlight. And, when the sun sets, auto-dimming will keep your
monitors readable.

Fully integrated

You can use the GPSMAP 8530 with just about everything, including various sonar
technologies, integrated autopilot, connectivity apps, engine data and multi-media.
With SmartMode control, you can switch all monitors in sync from one mode to another
without manually switching each monitor separately. Your GPSMAP 8530 features
customizable layouts, data and gauges to make sure you have all the information you
need, right when you need it.

A high performer

With the separate, external GPS19x smart antenna, which features a 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS
receiver, your GPSMAP 8530 updates your position and heading 10 times each second,
showing you a more fluid vessel movement and giving you easy and accurate navigation
to 5,000 waypoints.

Use Garmin card reader

The GPSMAP 8530 black box requires the separate Garmin Card reader, which allows
remote mounting and a single access point for 2 SD card slots for mapping. You can
add multiple card readers to get additional access points. And, the waterproof
magnetic door allows you to mount your card reader horizontally or vertically.

On the GRID

GRID stands for Garmin Remote Input Device, and it gives you full control of all
GPSMAP 8530 black box series units. It features a rotary knob and joystick controls
that help you navigate through menus and lets you easily toggle between monitors at a
station. You can control multiple monitors with one device. Plus, you can integrate a
small footprint into a captain’s chair (sold separately).

So many ways to mount

Mount your GPSMAP 8530 with the traditional bail mount or the low-profile flush
mount. But, if you want to really show off your device, try Garmin’s exclusive
flat-mount glass helm.
