The newest piece of marine tech from Garmin at the recent Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, the GPSMAP 8000 MFD and GPSMAP 8500 Black Box series.

Introducing a true glass helm appearance into the boating industry, the GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm series boasts powerful new features and a revamped user-interface with a streamlined design that can make any helm look custom-built.

Offering an 8, 12, and 15-inch multi-touch, pinch-to-zoom multi-function display, the GPSMAP 8000 MFD series boasts a lower profile compared to previous MFD models. The new 8000 series can easily fit into a pre-existing space where previous MFD units were installed.

Combined with a user-interface that’s designed for efficiency, the GPSMAP 8000 MFD series proves to be essential for any helm. The refreshed interface has been streamlined to help access the most important menus and settings and provides a more intuitive and accessible experience for you.

With a user control bar docked at the bottom of the screen, information such as waypoints, autopilot and the home menu are only a finger touch away.

In addition to the release of the GPSMAP 8000 MFD series, we're also proud to introduce the GPSMAP 8500 Black Box series, an elegantly efficient solution for larger vessels with more helm space. Offering a 15, 17, and 19-inch multi-touch, pinch-to-zoom monitor to use with the black box, the GPSMAP 8500 Black Box series allows for easy installation wherever you choose. Having an independent, detached black box allows for better system cooling, larger screen size capability and easier installation. And because the Black Box series monitors are high resolution, they can receive up to a 1080p HD resolution video.

With a fully integrated glass display, the sleek GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm series brings an elegant and customized appearance by offering a new, flat-mounting option that transforms the vessel’s bridge into a glass helm. The new series can also be installed by traditional flush mounting, providing a very low profile alternative.

A valuable new feature offered on the GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm series is SmartMode station control. With SmartMode, you can customize numerous preset modes based off of various activities. With the simplicity of only two button pushes, SmartMode can instantly synchronize all displays to show the most desirable screens for a particular activity.

Auto-dimming and power is also synced across displays, providing the easiest, most intuitive controls ever offered in our multi-function units and allowing for a custom experience to every user.

The perfect accessory to accompany the new Glass Helm series is the GRID (Garmin Remote Input Device). GRID, sold separately, is a remote device that allows for seamless navigation between an individual or multiple displays. GRID can be integrated into a captain’s chair for a low-profile controlling solution.
