Unleash a new level of power across your helm with GPSMAP 6212.

GPSMAP 6212 also provides total system integration, supporting the addition of sonar, radar, weather and more. For additional enhanced features, add the optional BlueChart® g2 Vision® card (sold separately).

Designed To Move

GPSMAP 6212 brings unprecedented speed to your vessel with G Motion™ technology. With blazing-fast map redraw and refresh rates, you’ll have near real-time data to guide you. Whether in a crowded harbor or in uncertain weather, you’ll have the confidence you need to navigate your surroundings. GPSMAP 6212 also is compatible with an optional remote, and with a sleek and stylish design that was built to brave the elements, it looks great in any helm.

Detailed Graphics and Video

GPSMAP 6212 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. GPSMAP 6212’s high-speed processor draws maps quickly, and its intuitive interface makes navigating easy. Keep tabs on your engine room or other areas by connecting a live video feed with the video input and output options. GPSMAP 6212 also comes standard with a range of brightness options, from sunlight-readable to low-light conditions, so you can adjust the display to match your surroundings.

Optional 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 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

GPSMAP 6212 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 GPSMAP 6212 and other chartplotters on your boat. You also can add high-powered radar, sonar and XM WX Satellite Weather and SiriusXM Satellite 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, and browse playlists, artists and songs. Control audio sources for SiriusXM Satellite Radio, DVD, iPod/iPhone, Aux, USB and AM/FM. 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 easy.
