Garmin just introduced its new flagship GPSMAP 9000 chartplotter series, with 4K resolution, edge-to-edge clarity and a processor that’s seven times faster than previous versions.
The new touchscreen chartplotters come in 19-, 22-, 24-, and 27-inch displays, representing the largest size in recreational boating. Prices start at $9,999. They will be available next month.
The new GPSMAP 9000 MFDs work with Garmin’s BlueNet gigabit network to provide comprehensive connectivity throughout the boat, connecting multiple chartplotters, radars, cameras and sonars. They also provide multimedia streaming and video, so users can play and hear the same video and audio over multiple screens and speakers.
The new processor delivers Garmin’s fastest map drawing and routing, helping you navigate quickly and safely. The GPSMAP 9000 come with Garmin’s Navionics+.
Each new MFD can be mounted flat or flush to create a state-of-the-art glass helm. It provides accurate colors that you can see from all viewing angles, even if you’re wearing polarized sunglasses. For the first time, anglers can see fish and sonar targets in 4K definition by adding a Garmin GSD sonar module.
You can connect the GPSMAP 9000 chartplotter with a compatible Garmin smartwatch so you can control the MFD functions from your wrist. You also can control the chartplotter with voice commands if you use an optional headset.
