Great Chartplotter

 

As far as a chartplotter the Garmin 4212 is an exceptional unit. Navigation is intuitive and screen redraw is fast. Viewing is very customizable based on user preference insofar as different viewing perspectives and overlays. It comes loaded with...

Chart detail, ease of use, many funtional options (weather!), great screen, cheaper than

internal waypoint memory, loss of useful function

Consumer review by:

Worth every penny!

 

The screen size is perfect even when viewing three different combonations at once. The XM receiver is excellent because it gives both weather capabilities and music capabilities. Must get the G2 vision card! Highly recommend!

Product Specifications

This preloaded, offshore chartplotter combines the power of networking with brilliant color and slim-line design. The GPSMAP 4212 has preloaded BlueChart g2 maps of the U.S. coast and displays them on a whopping 12.1" XGA display with crisp, video-quality resolution. By connecting to the Garmin Marine Network, you can add sonar, radar and weather. The 4212 features highly-detailed BlueChart g2 marine cartography of the coastal United States, including Alaska, Hawaii and the Bahamas. This data provides detailed coastlines, shaded depth contours, navaids, port plans, wrecks, restricted areas and tide and current information. For other areas, the 4212 has a worldwide basemap with high-quality satellite images in place of more traditional maps. With the SD card slot, you can add additional maps without having to connect to a computer. The 4212's high-speed processor draws maps quickly, and its simple intuitive interface makes navigating easy. To keep tabs on your engine room or other area of your boat, you can also connect a live video feed with the 4212's video input and output options. The 4212 connects easily to the high-speed Garmin Marine Network, so you can interface with additional MFDs and add remote sensors. Once connected, you can share information between the 4212 and other chartplotters on your boat. You can also add high-powered radar, sonar and XM satellite weather and radio to your system. This product is bundled with GPS 17 with pole mount adapter.
