Save your money


Inland Lakes maps are a joke. Information is not accurate and there are no contour lines and channel location on the lake I used it on was not correct. Does well on land. Does not work with Fishing Hot Spots. I am giving mine away!

Product Specifications

This chartplotter provides the brightest, sharpest, most colorful graphics you've ever seen on a 5-inch screen. See clearly as you navigate with the 535's crisp, sunlight-readable VGA display driven by a high-speed processor. This chartplotter offers exceptional detail, fast redraw rates, and the most realistic photo-enhanced cartography ever seen in this class of fixed-mount electronics. The 535 includes U.S. detailed maps of inland lakes. Your basemap can be enhanced with the optional BlueChart g2 Vision card, which provides high-resolution aerial reference photos for help navigating tricky harbors and channels - or locating spots like area marinas, fuel stops or restaurants. The g2 Vision plug-in SD data card card also allows the GPSMAP 535 to graphically depict a true 3D "mariner's eye" topside view or "fish eye" underwater navigation perspective. With fewer buttons to push and fewer operational steps to navigate, the GPSMAP 535's simplified menu format makes it easy for you to see and select the data you want to access on-screen. The 535s comes with powerful dual frequency or dual beam sonar to clearly paint depth contours, fish targets, structure, etc. It's also CANet capable, allowing sounder data to be shared with other plotter displays on your boat.
