Same fast processor, high-sensitivity receiver, and simple interface as the 441s
Move up to a 5" display size with the GPSMAP 541s chartplotter/sounder. Same fast processor, high-sensitivity receiver, and simple interface as the 441s.
GPSMAP 541s is ready to go with an easy-to-use interface and a built-in, satellite-enhanced chart that includes all U.S. coastal areas, including Alaska and Hawaii, as well as detailed charts for the Bahamas. It also accepts BlueChart® g2 Vision cards for added premium features and functionality such as high-resolution satellite imagery, Mariner’s Eye 3D-mapping and Auto Guidance technology.
GPSMAP 541s is equipped with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver for superior satellite tracking and quicker acquisition time. Its built-in antenna works for most external mounting locations and even under hardtops and some pilothouses. For some below-decks installations, an external antenna may be needed. Order the GA 30 GPS Antenna (Model 11068681) if initial installation doesn’t provide optimal GPS signal reception.
