The GPSMAP 5x7 Series combination chartplotter/sounders 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 combos 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. The 547 Series come preloaded with both Garmin U.S. offshore and U.S. lakes cartography. Although the water may be choppy, navigation won’t be.
See what’s below with HD-ID Sonar: HD-ID target tracking technology gives you better separation and definition of images for the clearest possible picture of what lies below. You see fish. You catch fish. Easy.
Experience the advantage of CHIRP: The sonar technology that you’ve been waiting for is now built into this combo. When used with a compatible CHIRP transducer (sold separately), these combos can display crystal-clear sonar images to help find the next hidden fishing spot, ship wreckage or diving location. With Spread-Spectrum technology, you’ll see unprecedented target separation and resolution at extraordinary depths, and you can dial into specific frequencies to target certain fish species. Bottom contours are more visible and signal noise is suppressed at greater depths to provide a more timely interpretation of what’s below for safer navigation and better fishing.
Capture sonar recording: Sonar recording coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat’s position and saves digital information on the map.

Comments about GPSMAP 547xs Chartplotter / Sounder, US Coastal / Inland Cartography, Transducer Sold Separately:
The screen is large , and easy to read in direct sun light. The GPS feature works great, and the fish finder/ depth finder is perfect for all type of boats operating in shallow waters.
The instructions didn't explain that although it is a NMEA 2000 device, it is also one of the devices that must be powered by the included NMEA 0183 cord (really confusing since instructions don't tell you this). After hooking it up properly it worked with all my existing NMEA 2000 devices.
