Product details

The GPSMAP 86s is a stand-alone backup navigation device that also serves as an extension to the marine system with wireless connectivity. The 3" display is easy to read even in sunlight and provides a better overview and additional practical functions.

Connecting to the boat
Wireless connectivity allows you to connect the GPSMAP 86s to compatible Garmin multifunction displays. You can receive real-time ship data directly to your handset or conveniently operate autopilots or FUSION marine products. When you're on the move, the customisable GPS filter adjusts the speed and heading readings in swell to improve tracking accuracy.

Optional BlueChart g3 charts
You can add a BlueChart g3 coastal chart using the microSD card slot, providing industry-leading coverage, clarity and detail with integrated data from Garmin and Navionics®. A global base chart is pre-installed.
Detailed depth contours allow you to see up to 0.3 meters of contours, making it easier to visualise bottom structures. The result is optimised fishing charts and additional details for marshes, channels and harbour maps.

Always connected
Get Smart Notifications directly on your GPSMAP 86s handset when paired with your compatible smartphone. You can also sync your GPSMAP 86s device with the Garmin Explore-Portal to manage your favourite waypoints, tracks, and routes in the cloud. The GPSMAP 86s device supports WLAN, ANT+ technology, and Bluetooth wireless technology so you can easily update and connect wirelessly. For long journeys, a built-in lithium battery provides up to 40 hours of battery life in 10-minute tracking mode.

Einer der wenigen Marine GPS Handy Plotter
The part makes a valuable, stable impression. The display is easy to read in daylight. The image resolution is good (but not better than, for example, my 10 year old Lowrance iFinder H2Oc, which I unfortunately have to sort out because Navionics map updates are no longer available, although it works). which I will probably never need (on a small cruiser). The LiIon battery, which is expected to last a day of sailing without an external power connection, is advantageous. The operation is intuitive, at least for the main purpose, namely the display of the course on a nautical chart (here Bluechart G3). The way they are displayed, however, takes some getting used to (see my comment there) and cannot be changed by settings on the GPSMAP. Unfortunately, there is no suitable bracket (inexpensive, without a 12V connection and ideally suitable for the existing docking base with 4 claws), only an almost 100 euros expensive with a 12V connection, which requires new drill holes in the cockpit (not in the SVB offer)
