imagery for a realistic "view from space" depiction. With
g2 Vision cards, these images are upgraded to super high-detail
aerial photomapping. It's the most realistic map you've ever seen
on a graphical chartplotter. And you can navigate 'on the picture'
with a clear dynamic presentation of your boat's current position.
Auto Guidance. The optional Auto Guidance technology, unlocked
via g2 Vision card, searches chart contents to suggest the safest
known charted route for navigation.
True 3D-view mapping. Garmin's newest chartplotters wil graphically
depict true 3D "mariner's eye" topside view or "fish
eye" underwater view navigation perspective for tricky shoals,
reefs, bridges, channels etc.
Picture" Photo Reference. Aerial photography gives mariners
a realistic visual overview of harbours, marinas, waterways and
other points of reference. The photos allow a visual reference for
nearby fuel pumps, dining spots, lodging and shore-side facilities.
