The GPSMAP 8215 Glass Helm Multi-function Display provides the most powerful, technologically advanced, easiest to use marine navigation solutions Garmin has ever offered—sleek, completely integrated glass helms made powerfully simple. Available as integrated multi-function displays, or black box systems with external touchscreen monitors.

The bright, crisp touchscreen includes pinch-to-zoom and other touch controls to give you intuitive fingertip operation. Anti-glare and LED backlighting makes this series easy to view in bright sunlight: auto-dimming provides outstanding visibility at night.

Includes BlueChart g2: BlueChart g2 marine maps feature crisp labeling and an overall smooth presentation on your chartplotter display. In addition to the basic charts, tidal stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols and included fishing charts, BlueChart g2 offers smooth transitions between zoom levels and seamless continuity across chart boundaries. Covered by Garmin’s exclusive New Chart Guarantee.

Full NMEA 2000 System Integration: Integrates...everything, including various sonar technologies, integrated autopilot, connectivity, apps, engine data and multi-media. SmartMode™ control allows the user to quickly change all screens at a helm in sync to a preset mode. Everything you need is at the tip of your finger, all on one screen.

Customize Layouts with SmartMode Control: Switch all monitors in sync from one mode to another without manually switching each monitor separately. Fully customizable layouts, data and gauges allow you to place the information you need to see right where you want it.

High Performance GPS: External GPS19x smart antenna with 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver updates position and heading ten times per second to display a more fluid vessel movement and dramatically improves your ability to accurately mark and navigate to 5,000 waypoints.

GRID™: (Garmin Remote Input Device): A remote device that provides full control of all GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm series units. Rotary knob and joystick controls provide navigation through menus and screens and allows you to seamlessly navigate between monitors at a station. Control single or multiple monitors with one device. Supports multiple devices per station. Small footprint can be integrated into a captain&rsquo:s chair (sold separately).

Flexible Mounting Options: Low-profile flush mount or flat-mount glass helm option (Flat Mount Kits sold separately).
