MaxDef Lakes -- A Commitment to Accuracy
Garmin has invested in their own fleet of survey boats equipped with ultra-sensitive sonar technologies. This fleet is cruising lakes and rivers throughout the U.S., creating our own exclusive ultra-high detail maps - a level of detail that's unprecedented in recreational mapping. We started with the most popular fishing lakes and are traveling around the country adding more lakes all the time. These are Garmin exclusive MaxDef lakes.
Auto Guidance (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
A Garmin exclusive, Auto Guidance directs you to your hot spots quickly by instantly creating an on-screen path for your boat to follow that avoids shallow water and other charted obstructions. Shown with MarinerEye view.
High Resolution Relief Shading (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
High Resolution Relief Shading adds visual depth to the 2-D map making it easier to interpret contours and find fish holding structure.
Dynamic Lake Level (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Allows you to adjust your maps to the lake's current water levels giving you a better idea of spots that are either accessible or too shallow to explore.
Depth Range Shading (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Displays high-resolution Depth Range Shading to view your designated target depth. If you know the fish are biting between 10' and 15' you can mark that depth range.
FishEye View (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Underwater perspective shows 3-D representation of lake bottom and contours as seen from below the waterline. Interface with sonar data for customized view.
Sonar Imagery (More Than 40+ MaxDef Lakes)
Shows a nearly photographic view of the bottom, as if all the water had been drained away.
Surface and Side Scan Photos (More Than 40+ MaxDef Lakes)
Gives you a clear visual reference of notable spots above and structure below the surface of the water.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.Read More
