GPSMAP 520 – Review

Navigation has never been easy and comfortable as it could be with the GPSMAP 520. Built with a very few buttons and a virtually intuitive interface, navigation has been made possible with a basemap of world wide satellite images. Detailed maps can be downloaded and stored to its SD card slot without you even getting connected to a personal computer. You can even have the chance to upgrade the card slot to BlueChart® g2 Vision SD card to more enhanced features. Amazingly crafted, the Garmin GPSMAP 520 has a slim-line chart-plotter and also an ultra bright 5 QVGA display.

The GPSMAP 520 comes with dual, frequency transducer that allows it to capture fish targets, depth contours and structures whether you are in a fresh water or far off the coast. The GPSMAP 520 is made compatible with CANet(TM) in order for you to share more vivid data with another chartplotter on the same boat.

Upgrading your 520 memory to the Bluechart SD card means a greater advantage for you. Special features like 3d mariner’s view that gives you map information above or below the waterline and high resolution satellite images await you. By upgrading, unfamiliar areas will never feel strange through aerial photographs. Searching is no longer a tough job with the GPSMAP 520 as built in Auto Guidance Technology looks into almost all significant charts saving you from obstacles, buoys and the shallow waters. The chartplotter can even have a chance to create new routes for better navigation experience.
