GPSMAP® 820xs w/DownVü Transducer

The GPSMAP 820xs keyed chartplotter/sonar combo has a 8-inch color SVGA display and comes preloaded with a worldwide basemap. HD-ID, CHIRP and DownVü with CHIRP sonar technology are built-in, allowing you the flexibility to choose from several optional transducers. It also provides media integration and autopilot compatibility, radar support, and NMEA 2000® and wireless connectivity.

Extreme Sonar Capabilities
The built-in sonar capabilities of the GPSMAP 820xs gives you the freedom and flexibility to choose from several optional transducers, including traditional, CHIRP and all-in-one HD-ID/DownVü scanning sonar with CHIRP technology. Add a GCV™ 10 scanning sonar module for both DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar with CHIRP technology (sold separately).

Allow networked combos to share their internal sonar with any other device on the network. GPSMAP 820xs also gives you the flexibility to choose what information is overlaid on the sonar screen. For example, time of day or GPS speed.

It also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat's position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software.

CHIRP Support
When used with a compatible CHIRP transducer (sold separately), GPSMAP 820xs displays crystal-clear sonar images detailing fishing hot spots, ship wreckage or a diving location. With Garmin CHIRP technology, you get remarkable target separation and resolution at extraordinary depths, and can dial into specific frequencies to target certain species of sport fish. Bottom contours are more visible, even at speed, and signal noise can be suppressed at greater depths to provide a more timely interpretation of what's below for safer navigation and better fishing.

Dynamic Sea Temperature
Set a range for sea temperatures, and it dynamically adjusts to display a color range that can be used to target certain types of fish (Optional GXM™ 52 required).

Radar Support
Add your choice of marine radar, either open array or our new xHD dome radar that pair ease of use with advanced open array features.

Super-fast 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS
High-sensitivity internal 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS provides position and heading updates 10 times per second. It displays fluid on-screen location and proves to be incredibly accurate when marking waypoints and navigating.

NMEA 2000 Support
This combo allows you to add more capabilities to your boat. It provides NMEA 2000 support so you can see valuable information on your screen for Garmin autopilot, engine data, SiriusXM Weather radar and more.

Networking
The GPSMAP 820xs offers select networking capabilities that allow you to share features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as radar, GCV 10 DownV™ and SideV™ scanning sonar, supplemental maps, and user data, including waypoints, routes and tracks. User data entered into 1 chartplotter can be automatically synced with other chartplotters in a network.

Special Sailing Features
Supported sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider. Gauge displays are designed to provide important need-to-know information at a glance, including true and apparent wind angle, set and drift, true or apparent wind speed, horizontal or vertical graphs, and a data bar with customizable data fields.

View and Control Your Device from a Smartphone or Tablet
Garmin Helm™ allows you to view and control your compatible Garmin chartplotter from an iPhone® or iPad® or phone, or phone or tablet using Android - while providing enhanced situational awareness for the mariner. Easily switch between portrait and landscape mode to accommodate mounting preferences. Using your iPhone or iPad, you can even record a movie of your chartplotter screen to share with friends and family. Download from the App Store™ or Google Play™ today.

Get Your Apple® Device Onboard with BlueChart® Mobile
With BlueChart Mobile, a free app downloaded from the App Store, you can plan marine routes on your iPad or iPhone then wirelessly transfer them to your boat's compatible networked Garmin chartplotter. Even if you don't have a Garmin chartplotter, you can still take advantage of the tremendous features of BlueChart on your Apple device.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
