Garmin has announced its next generation in large-format multi-function displays – the GPSMAP 6000 and GPSMAP 7000 series. These units feature Garmin G Motion technology that represents a graphic breakthrough in speed, smoothness and clarity.
Designed to deliver ultra-smooth map panning and zooming with virtually seamless graphical updating in all dimensions, these new chartplotters also feature a low-level backlight display that dims to 0.5 nits, and a backlit keypad for use in low-light conditions, without compromising vision.
“The evolution of marine navigation continues with these new top-of-the-line network chartplotters that feature the smoothest, most detail-rich displays in Garmin’s chartplotter lineup,” said Matt DeMoss, Garmin Australasia’s National Sales and Marketing Manager.
The GPSMAP 7015 offers a 15-inch diagonal XGA (1024 x 768 pixel) sunlight readable touchscreen display with an enhanced worldwide satellite imagery basemap. The GPSMAP 7015 has a PC monitor input, so you can use it for display of digital presentations, internet browsers, or other computer applications. In addition, it offers four composite video inputs for multimedia use. Buyers can also opt for the same XGA resolution in a 12-inch diagonal screen configuration with the GPSMAP 7012 with a worldwide basemap.
Both models are compatible with an optional wireless remote and a wireless mouse for additional flexibility.
The GPSMAP 6000 and GPSMAP 7000 will be available in February 2010.
