Garmin GPSMap 530/ 530s

Discontinued and replaced with the Garmin GPSMAP 531/531s.

With an easier-to-use interface and sleek new design, GPSMap 530 series pack more value for your navigation dollar. They feature bright 5" QVGA color displays, preloaded U.S. inland lakes data, worldwide satellite imagery and a streamlined user interface. The 530-series comes preloaded with coast-to-coast cartography for inland U.S. waters, of which over 5000 of these lakes and navigable waters include invaluable details such as extra resolution, depth contours, boat ramps, mile markers, hazards, marinas, campgrounds, area roads, and more (contiguous 48 states only).

Like all Garmin plotters, these utilize WAAS/EGNOS-enabled GPS receivers for high accuracy (typically 3 metres). The combo "s" models add a 500-watt (RMS) built-in sonar with split-screen capability, to view map and sounder data simultaneously.
The built-in sounder on the 530s combo model can scan as deep as 900 feet (with included dual beam transducer) to clearly paint depth contours, fish targets, structure, etc.

The combo 530s also offers split-screen capability, so you can view map and sounder data simultaneously. See real-time weather displayed on the 530-series' high-resolution, sunlight readable display with the purchase of the GXM 31 antenna (sold separately) and subscription to XM WX Satellite Weather. View vital weather data such as NEXRAD radar, storm cells, wind speeds, surface temperatures, forecasts and more than a dozen other weather attributes directly on the unit's chart - so you can spend more time enjoying the water and less time worrying about the weather.

All the new Garmin chartplotters feature basic worldwide satellite imagery for a realistic "view from space" depiction. With optional 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.

"Real 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. Also included is City Navigator North America NT road data for navigation up to five miles inland.
