The GPSMAP 8212 is Garmin’s fully-integrated 12-inch touchscreen multifunction
display (MFD) that gives you an amazing marine user interface. Simply put, the GPSMAP
8212 may be Garmin’s most technologically-advanced, user-friendly MFD ever.

A touching experience

The GPSMAP 8212 gives you an XGA touchscreen that features pinch-to-zoom technology
and plenty other intuitive touch features. It also comes preloaded with BlueChart g2
maps of the coastal US, including Alaska, Hawaii and the Bahamas, which you’ll have
no problem reading thanks to the anti-glare and LED backlighting. And, when the sun
goes down, auto-dimming is there to help you out.

Fully integrated

You can use the GPSMAP 8212 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 8212 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 external GPS19x smart antenna, which features a 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver,
your GPSMAP 8212 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. And the new processor gives you 40 percent more processing power than
previous Garmin series, so your screen will refresh seamlessly when you pan or

The BlueChart g2 advantage

Your GPSMAP 8212 gives you BlueChart g2 marine maps with vivid labeling and smooth
presentation on your display. Not only do you get basic charts, you also get tidal
stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols and included fishing charts.
BlueChart g2 features smooth transitions between zoom levels, and amazing continuity
across chart boundaries. Plus, it’s covered by Garmin’s exclusive New Chart Guarantee.

On the GRID

GRID stands for Garmin Remote Input Device, and it gives you full control of all
GPSMAP 8212 Glass Helm 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 8212 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.
