Garmin announces support for Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchors and CHARGE Power Management Station

Latest software update enables Power-Pole control from compatible Garmin chartplotters

OLATHE, Kan., April 12, 2022 – Garmin® International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd., the world’s largest1 and most innovative marine electronics manufacturer, today announced that select ECHOMAP and GPSMAP® chartplotters are now compatible with Power-Pole® Shallow Water Anchors. This added support allows anglers to stow and deploy their Power-Poles directly from their compatible Garmin chartplotter for even more onboard control. Support for Power-Pole CHARGE Power Management Station integration is expected in a future release, which will allow anglers to also monitor their battery charge from their compatible Garmin chartplotter. 

Power-Pole Anchor integration is available to existing Garmin customers via the Q2 2022 marine software update, which is available now as a free download at, or through the ActiveCaptain® app under the “My Marine Device” tab. In addition to a compatible ECHOMAP or GPSMAP chartplotter, a Power-Pole C-Monster Gateway is required for anchoring control.

The new Power-Pole control functionality is available for the following Garmin chartplotters:

GPSMAP 8600/8600xsv series, GPSMAP 10×2/12×2, GPSMAP 7×3/9×3/12×3, GPSMAP 7×2/9×2/12×2 Plus series, and the ECHOMAP Ultra and ECHOMAP UHD 7- and 9-inch Touch series.
