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.

What You’ll Get

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.

What You May Want to Add

The GPSMAP 541s is also NMEA 0183-compatible and NMEA 2000-certified for easy connectivity with sensors, instruments and future marine offerings. In addition, it can receive U.S. graphical weather data via optional GXM 51 Weather & Audio XM Satellite Receiver (Model 10632347). And with an SD card slot, it’s easy to add additional maps without connecting to a computer:  

NMEA Devices Model
GWS 10 Marine Wind Sensor 10198372
GFS 10 Fuel Sensor 9394719
Intelliducer, NMEA 2000 Thru-Hull Sensor (0-12° deadrise) 9394727
