Product Description

The GPSMAP 5008 features an unprecedented touchscreen interface, along with a satellite-enhanced worldwide basemap and an 8.4″ (21.3 cm) screen that makes navigation as easy as pointing your finger. By connecting to the Garmin Marine Network, you can add sonar and radar. For even more advanced features, you can add the optional BlueChart® g2 Vision® card (sold separately).

View Detailed Graphics and Video

The GPSMAP 5008 features a worldwide basemap with high-quality satellite images in place of more traditional maps. For even more detail, you can add maps easily with the SD™ card slot without having to connect to a computer. To keep tabs on your engine room or other area of your vessel, you can connect a live video feed with the 5008’s video input/output options.

Add Extras with BlueChart g2 Vision

With the optional BlueChart g2 Vision SD card, you can add a whole new dimension of exceptional features to your chartplotter.

  • MarinerEye view and FishEye view provide you a 3-D perspective of map information, both above and below the waterline.
  • High-resolution satellite images and aerial photographs help you orient yourself in unfamiliar areas.
  • Auto Guidance technology searches through all relevant charts to create a route you actually can follow — one that avoids obstacles, shallow water, buoys and other obstructions.

Connect to the Garmin Marine Network

The 5008 connects easily to the high-speed Garmin Marine Network, so you can interface with additional MFDs and add remote sensors. Once connected, you can share information between the 5008 and other chartplotters on your boat. You also can add high-powered radar, sonar and XM satellite weather and radio to your system.
