Product Details

Garmin GPSMAP 540S Portable GPS Navigation Unit - 0100061501

This offshore mariner’s chartplotter flush-mounts easily in your boat and sports preloaded BlueChart g2 maps for the coast of the U.S. and Bahamas. The GPSMAP 540 also features a 5” QVGA display and simple, straightforward buttons and menus. You can add the optional BlueChart g2 Vision SD card for even more enhanced features.

Navigate the High Seas
The 540 has preloaded detailed maps covering all U.S. coastal areas and the Bahamas. For other areas, the 540 has a worldwide basemap with satellite images in place of more traditional maps. The SD card slot makes it easy to add additional maps without connecting to a computer. And with just a few buttons and a simple, intuitive interface, the 540 makes navigating your way through the water easy.

Add Sonar and Weather
Where applicable, the sounder version, GPSMAP 540s, comes with a powerful dual frequency transducer that clearly paints depth contours, fish targets and structure whether you’re fishing in freshwater or off the coast. It’s also CANet™ compatible, so you can share sounder data with another chartplotter on your boat. For continuously-updated weather information, you can add the optional GXM 31 antenna to receive XM satellite weather, including NEXRAD radar, and hundreds of XM radio stations right on your chartplotter.

Add Extras with BlueChart® g2 Vision
With the optional BlueChart g2 Vision SD card, you can add a whole new dimension of exceptional features to your chartplotter.
