New Garmin GPSMAP models now available
FURTHER expanding Garmin’s GPSMAP multifunction display series, the new 752xs/952xs touchscreen and 1022xsv/1222xsv rotary control/keyed units are now available in Australia.
Packed with sonar and chartplotting features, the new units offer full-network compatibility for the Garmin Marine Network and NMEA 2000 and NMEA 0183 support for autopilots, digital switching, VHF, AIS and other sensors.
All 2017 GPSMAP models also feature built-in Quickdraw Contours software – an easy-to-use tool allowing boaters to instantly create personalised HD maps with 30cm contours on any body of water.
In the new GPSMAP touchscreen series, the compact 752xs (7” display) and 952xs (9” display) are equipped with 1kW traditional CHIRP sonar, CHIRP ClearVü scanning sonar for a near picture-quality view of what’s beneath the boat, as well as support for Panoptix all-seeing sonar. Built-in wireless connectivity for Garmin mobile apps and VIRB action camera integration is also standard.
For those who prefer a keypad interface, the new GPSMAP 1022xsv (10” display) and GPSMAP 1222xsv (12” display) deliver an all-new industrial design, with each unit featuring a large, sunlight-readable screen coupled with a keypad interface and new multifunction rotary control knob for precise, simple control of menu navigation and setting control, even in rough water.
Along with the same GPS and connectivity features as the GPSMAP touchscreen series, the 1022xsv and 1222xsv also offer built-in 1kW CHIRP sonar, CHIRP ClearVü and CHIRP SideVü scanning sonar, as well as support for Panoptix all-seeing sonar and other premium Garmin sonar modules.
RRP starts at AU$1499 (GPSMAP 752xs) and rounds out at AU$3799 (GPSMAP 1222xsv).
