Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, will be showcasing its suite of pioneering marine products at this year’s Seawork, designed for individuals working within the commercial sector and vessels from fishing boats and workboats to RIBs.
Garmin’s vast range of marine products are all designed, developed and manufactured with longevity in mind to ensure they are rugged enough to withstand the harsh commercial marine environment. Products on display at Seawork include the new GMR Fantom™, the GPSMAP® 7400 and 8400 series, the new GPSMAP® 1022 and 1222, the new Panoptix™ Forward PS51-TH as well as the new inReach SE®+ and inReach Explorer®+ Satellite Communicators.
GMR Fantom 4 & 6
Garmin’s new GMR Fantom solid-state pulse compression radar series with MotionScope™ Doppler technology has 40W of power, the highest in the industry for its kind.
Available in a 4 or 6 foot open array, the Fantom series MotionScope™ technology uses the Doppler effect to create a display, automatically “Painting” dangerous moving targets red, safe moving targets in green thereby giving unrivalled levels of situational awareness to help users avoid potential collisions.
With pulse compression technology, it provides high resolution while maximising energy on targets to enhance detection and identification of targets. It uses pulse expansion to maximise target size to help differentiate real targets from noise.
Featuring a unique design that’s smaller and lighter than previous open-array radar models, the new Fantom radars deliver high sensitivity for both close and long range without any compromise in ruggedness or reliability. As no warm-up time is needed, mariners can start tracking targets instantly.
GMR Fantom 18 & 24 dome radars
These 40 W solid-state dome radars with MotionScope™ technology use the Doppler effect to detect and highlight targets in different colours as they move towards or away from you, helping you avoid potential collisions. It features low power consumption, instant power on and no warm up delay, with excellent close and long-range detection from 20 feet to 48 nautical miles.
GPSMAP 8400 series
The GPSMAP 8400 series is the powerful new all-in-one multi-function displays (MFDs) that offer mariners the highest screen resolution on the market.
These large-format MFDs provide a sleek glass-helm look and are available in 17, 22 and 24-inch displays, featuring full HD in-plane switching (IPS) screens with multi-touch control. Boasting new and improved processors, the GPSMAP 8400 series provides increased performance, enhanced video processing, and the fastest chart drawing offered to date in a Garmin MFD.
GPSMAP 7400 series
The GPSMAP 7400 units, which now include a built-in J1939 connector, offering a dedicated CAN port for directly receiving compatible engine data to create a fully-integrated and completely networked helm, are available in sonar and non-sonar versions and feature CHIRP DownVü and SideVü. The GPSMAP 7400 series is a premier line that streamlines high performance, usability and superior boating features with a renowned interface that makes any time on the water more productive and enjoyable.
The GPSMAP 7400 series encompasses the same performance and dependability customers have grown to expect from the GPSMAP range. With full pinch-to-zoom touchscreen capabilities, these devices integrate features that are essential in commercial marine and offshore environments. Full-network compatibilities allow the user to add sensors, multiple screens, remote sonar modules, weather, radar, autopilot, thermal and IP camera visibility, digital switching and more. All units in the GPSMAP 7400 series also offer the conveniences of built-in WiFi connectivity for use with the Garmin Helm™ and BlueChart® Mobile 2.0 apps. Garmin has also recently announced the addition of 16-inch MFDs to the GPSMAP 7400 series.
For those who prefer a keypad interface, the all-in-one solutions offered by the new 10-inch GPSMAP® 1022xsv and the 12-inch GPSMAP® 1222xsv cannot be overlooked. With an all-new industrial design, these combos feature a large, sunlight-readable screen, coupled with a keypad interface and new multifunction rotary control knob that offers precise, simple control for easy menu navigation and setting control, even in rough water. These units also offer four user-programmable hot keys for one-touch access to favourite features and functions.
The Panoptix™ multibeam thru-hull transducer with premium FrontVü forward-looking sonar helps you avoid running aground1 by displaying the bottom ahead of your boat in real time. Designed to give mariners more confidence and peace of mind when navigating unfamiliar water, Panoptix™ FrontVü is a narrow beam, forward-looking sonar that focuses on the bottom in front of the boat, rather than the sides. The Panoptix™ PS51-TH transducer is compatible with the 7- and 9-inch echoMAP™ CHIRP chartplotter/sonar combos, the new GPSMAP® 722/922 and 1022/1222 series, and the GPSMAP® 8400/8600, 7400/7600, 7x1/820/1020 series.

The inReach SE+ and inReach Explorer+ are the first Garmin devices with inReach satellite communication technology. The new inReach SE+ and inReach Explorer+ have Pole to Pole global Iridium® satellite coverage for two-way messaging and SOS alerting anywhere in the world. Both models include a built-in GPS for location tracking and basic navigation, and the inReach Explorer+ adds preloaded TOPO maps1, compass and barometric altimeter.
