The GPSMAP 5x7 Series chartplotters have 60 percent more processing power than the previous generation for faster zooming and panning. With the integration of the high-sensitivity 10Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver, the new GPSMAP 5x7 Series chartplotters are able to update position and heading ten times per second, providing significantly smoother on-screen navigation. This industry-leading GPS receiver dramatically improves the ability to mark and navigate to waypoints and also allows for vessel movement to be crisp and fluid on screen. Also includes full wireless connectivity. GPSMAP 527 chartplotters include built-in worldwide basemap. Although the water may be choppy, navigation won’t be.
