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.

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.
