Take your marine network to the next level with this update.
The Garmin Marine Software Update 5.0 is a free¹ update that brings new features and functionality to your chartplotter while retaining the familiarity you have with your system.
Garmin’s Marine Software Update 5.0 makes your chartplotter more intuitive and requires fewer keystrokes between screens.
The update also greatly improves drawing speed for charts and provides better map performance, giving you quick access to information.
Even users who do not have BlueChart® g2 Vision cards can enjoy a 3-D perspective display. A compass rose overlay and smoother map detail improve navigation in tight harbors or open waters.
Garmin’s Marine Software Update 5.0 is an easy update – whether you’re updating your 400/500 series chartplotter or 4000/5000 series network chartplotter. Simply update via your compatible chartplotter and the data will reach the rest of the compatible Garmin marine products on your vessel.
As an added benefit for our 4000 and 5000 series chartplotters, we’ve also included support for our new GXM-51 Weather Receiver. And if you’re currently utilizing Garmin’s GHP-10 Autopilot System via NMEA 2000®, the update will allow you to engage the autopilot directly from your chartplotter.
¹The downloadable version of Marine Software Update 5.0 is free. It is also available on a preloaded SD™ card for $29 USD (plus shipping).
