The GPS Store's Guide to Chartplotters
At The GPS Store we try to make your shopping experience as easy as possible. If you still have questions you can always send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our product specialists will respond.
We are going to break these units up into Single Station Chartplotters, Single Station Chartplotter/Fishfinder, Network Chartplotters and Network Chartplotter/Fishfinders. Single Station units will only be capable of having one display, some will be just a GPS/Chartplotter, but many can add on fishfinders, satellite weather, and radar on that one display. Network systems are capable of working as a Single Station or with multiple displays "Networked" together. These systems can be setup with fishfinders, radars, satellite weather and more, and every unit on the network will share information with the others.
