Garmin GPSMAP 742 Touchscreen Chartplotter
With 7″ LCD, LakeVu charts and BlueChart Offshore Maps
Experience an advanced navigation solution with this compact touchscreen chartplotter. Includes wireless connectivity features for Garmin mobile apps, NMEA 2000 support and Garmin Marine Network support for radar and Panoptix FrontVü collision avoidance sonar.
Full-network compatibility allows you to add more capabilities to your boat. Garmin Marine Network support allows sharing of sonar, including Panoptix FrontVü collision avoidance sonar, maps, user data, dome or open-array radar and IP cameras among multiple units. Plus, there’s NMEA 2000 network connectivity and NMEA 0183 support for autopilots, digital switching, weather, FUSION-Link, VHF, AIS and other sensors.
Enjoy built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for BlueChart Mobile 2.0 and Garmin Helm apps. Garmin Helm allows you to view and control your compatible chartplotter from a compatible smartphone or tablet while providing enhanced situational awareness for the mariner. With BlueChart Mobile, a free app downloaded from the App Store™, you can get reliable weather information while you plan marine routes on your iPad® or iPhone® then wirelessly transfer them to your boat’s compatible networked Garmin chartplotter. You can even stream and control a VIRB action camera from the chartplotter.
Enjoy built-in ANT wireless connectivity directly to quatix® marine watch, Garmin Nautix™ in-view display, gWind™ Wireless 2 transducer, GNX™ Wind marine instrument and wireless remote controls.
Fast, responsive built-in 10 Hz GPS and GLONASS receiver refreshes your position and heading 10 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. It makes dropping up to 5,000 accurate waypoints — and finding your way back to them — quick and easy.
Includes expandable memory for accessory map purchases, such as LakeVü HD Ultra with Max Def Lakes or BlueChart g2 Vision HD, which adds Garmin patented Auto Guidance and other great features.
To help you gain a wind-maximizing competitive edge, your chartplotter features a pre-race guidance page that shows your virtual starting line along with data fields showing laylines, time to burn before the start and a race timer that can be synchronized across all your networked Garmin GPS products. In addition, other supported sailing features include an enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, set and drift, true and apparent wind data and more.
