In marine mode, the GPSMAP 640 brings you tides and currents, depth contours, navaids, port plans and marine services via preloaded BlueChart g2 marine data. And with optional BlueChart g2 Vision cards, you’ll get 3-D MarinerEye view above the waterline and FishEye view below the waterline. You’ll also benefit from auto guidance technology that searches chart data to suggest the best passage. For a low cost option try BlueChart g2 cards. The GPSMAP 640 is also NMEA 0183 compliant, so it can be easily added to an existing marine network.
In automotive mode, the GPSMAP 640 announces street names with spoken turn-by-turn directions pulled from the preloaded City Navigator NT road maps for North America. And route planning has never been easier. Whether you’re searching for boat shops or bait shops, you’ll be able to plan the quickest and most efficient route.
