Unleash a new level of power across your helm with the GPSMAP 6208. This premier chartplotter is the next evolution in Garmin’s series of full-featured marine products. The GPSMAP 6208 comes standard with preloaded BlueChart® g2 maps of the U.S. coast as well as video-quality resolution on an 8.4” (21.34 cm) VGA display. The GPSMAP 6208 also provides total system integration – allowing support for the addition of sonar, radar, weather and more. For additional enhanced features, you can add the optional BlueChart® g2 Vision® card (sold separately).

Designed to Move

The GPSMAP 6208 brings unprecedented speed to your vessel with Garmin G Motion™ technology – the future of marine technology today. With blazing-fast map redraw and refresh rates, you’ll have near real-time data to guide you. Whether you’re in a crowded harbor or in uncertain weather, you’ll have the confidence you need to navigate your surroundings with the GPSMAP 6208 as your guide. The GPSMAP 6208 also is compatible with an optional remote for added flexibility. And with a sleek and stylish design that was built to brave the elements, the GPSMAP 6208 looks great in any helm.

View Detailed Graphics and Video

The GPSMAP 6208 features highly detailed BlueChart g2 marine cartography of the coastal U.S., including Alaska, Hawaii and the Bahamas. And for more detail, you can easily add maps with the SD™ card slot without having to connect to a computer. The GPSMAP 6208’s high-speed processor draws maps quickly, and its simple intuitive interface makes navigating easy. To keep tabs on your engine room or other area of your boat, you also can connect a live video feed with the GPSMAP 6208’s video input and output options. The GPSMAP 6208 also comes standard with a wide range of brightness options - from sunlight-readable to low-light conditions, you can adjust the setting to match your conditions.

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 can actually follow — one that avoids obstacles, shallow water, buoys and other obstructions.

Connect to Your Network

The GPSMAP 6208 easily connects to your network - providing system integration so you can interface with additional MFDs and add remote sensors. Once connected, you can share information between the GPSMAP 6208 and other chartplotters on your boat. You also can add high-powered radar, sonar and XM satellite weather and radio to your system.

Control Fusion Audio Systems

Enjoy full control of your Fusion audio system through your chartplotter for up to 4 separate listening zones. Access iPod®/iPhone® menus; browse playlists, artists and songs. Control audio sources for SiriusXM, DVD, iPod/iPhone, Aux, USB and AM/FM. And of course, you have complete control of volume, track, pause, play, balance and subwoofer. Available accessories (sold separately) include a wireless mouse and an RF remote. Both are waterproof and make controlling your stereo even easier.
