A reliable offshore email and text messaging communication platform that works almost anywhere in the world. Plus it keeps track of your boat’s bilge water level, the status of your shore power connections and provides theft-deterrent security. Meet the Mazu app, a new entry in the growing “smart boat” marketplace.
Combine Smart Boat Tech with Social Networking

Combine Smart Boat Tech with Social Networking

Garmin calls their ActiveCaptain™ app an “all-in-one app for the ultimate connected boating experience.” With it, you can control your chartplotter from your smartphone or tablet and receive notifications and text messages on your chartplotter screen. See what else this app can do for boaters.
Amazing New Displays

Amazing New Displays

If you’ve ever taken off your polarized sunglasses to see your chartplotter screen, some new developments in LCD displays will interest you. IPS (in-plane switching) displays are the next wave of technology and the major electronics players are all in the game.
Solid-State Radar

Solid-State Radar

The new wave of marine radar is adapting advanced aviation technology to bring you sharper, clearer object definition than ever before.
Doppler Radar

Doppler Radar Helps Avoid Collisions

What’s the latest in marine radar? Doppler! We’re all familiar with the Doppler Effect, which we experience every time a fire truck roars by with its siren blaring. This commonplace effect that makes the siren’s pitch drop to a lower frequency as the truck passes is now harnessed in Garmin’s Fantom radar units. That’s good news for boaters navigating in crowded harbors.
CHIRP Sonar

CHIRP Sonar

Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse (CHIRP) changed the way serious anglers fish. Understand what this technology can mean to you.
DIY Maps

DIY Maps

This feature lets you dynamically create and share your own detailed maps for 3-D imaging of previously uncharted or poorly charted waters.
