With 60% more processing power, panning and zoom has never been faster. Built in Bluetooth wireless technology allows for easy connectivity to a compatible tablet or smart phone via Wi-Fi allowing you to access Garmin's Bluechart Marine app and pre plan. Create waypoints or routes before you even get out on the water and wirelessly transfer that information right to your GPS 547.
