Garmin 8617 Glass Bridge Multi-Function Display

Premium 17-inch full HD display with pinch-to-zoom touchscreen control.

GPSMAP 8617 large-format multifunction display features a 17-inch full HD screen with touch control. Sunlight-readable, anti-glare display is exceptionally easy to view and also includes auto-dimming feature for use in low light or at night. New maximum glass design enables you to experience a beautifully powerful, completely networked helm at your fingertips. In-plane switching (IPS) LCD display — an industry first for this class — provides consistent, accurate colors from all viewing angles. It also provides standard USB touch output for use as a touchscreen monitor for Windows® and Mac® operating systems. Install multiple displays with the industry’s lowest flush-mount profile or flat mount them edge-to-edge to create a sleek glass helm look. Quick, 1-touch access to the information you need makes boating easier.

Preloaded BlueChart g2 charts for the coastal U.S., Canada and Bahamas are included. In addition to the basic charts, tidal stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols and included fishing charts, BlueChart g2 offers smooth transitioning between zoom levels and more seamless continuity across chart boundaries. You can customize your screens with Shallow Water Shading, which allows you to shade all depth contours shallower than what you determine is your safe depth. Fishing charts emphasize bathymetric contours with less visual clutter on the display. And there’s also a choice of standard 2-D direct overhead or 3-D “over-the-bow” map views for easier chart reading and orientation.

These highly detailed freshwater maps include more than 17,000 U.S. lakes, rivers and reservoirs. Included in those are more than 13,000 HD lakes with 1-foot contours shoreline to shoreline and excellent detail of underwater features plus Shallow Water Shading that allows you to designate a minimum depth. Also includes interstates, highways, general roads and bridges, designated fishing areas and points of interest, such as docks, boat ramps, marinas and campgrounds.

GPSMAP 8617 integrates various sonar technologies as well as autopilot, connectivity, apps, engine data and multi-media. User data can be automatically synced for all networked 8400/8600 series chartplotters across multiple helms — everything you need is at your fingertips, all on 1 screen. A full digital switching system uses CZone technology. You can power up your boat while away from the dock, switch on pumps and control lights — even underwater lights. Nearly all of your controls are available right at your fingertips either at the helm or programmed into a remote key fob or an app on your tablet provided by CZone by Mastervolt.

In addition, all your added sensors, such as radar, sonar, multimedia and more, will benefit from the increased performance to provide a premium experience across your boat’s entire network.

To make boating easier, GPSMAP 8617 includes presets for sonar, radar, cameras, media and digital switching, which can be independent or incorporated into SmartMode. With SmartMode control, you can quickly change all screens at a helm in sync to a preset mode, for example, fishing, docking, night cruising, etc. One-touch access allows you to switch all monitors in sync from 1 mode to another without manually switching each monitor separately. Fully customizable layouts, data and gauges allow you to place the information you need to see right where you want it.

Full-network compatibility allows you to add more to your boat.
