The Best of Garmin with the Best of Navionics
For the most detailed, clear and concise charts and maps, this chartplotter is preloaded with BlueChart g3 coastal cartography and LakeVü g3 inland mapping featuring Navionics data. The charts and maps also include our Auto Guidance technology, which shows a suggested route to a destination¹, based on your boat’s specifications. The expandable memory allows you to upgrade your maps with accessory map purchases, such as BlueChart® g3 Vision and LakeVü g3 Ultra.
Build Your Marine System
NMEA 2000 networking and the Garmin Marine Network allow you to easily build your full marine electronics suite — from radar and autopilots to cameras, instruments and forward-looking sonar — controlled from your chartplotter and shared across multiple screens. In addition, our exclusive OneHelm™ system coordinates many third-party manufactured onboard marine products to bring full control of systems — such as digital switching, lighting, stabilization and more — conveniently to your chartplotter screen.
The GPSMAP 8612xsv chartplotter has a premium-performance processor that enables fast map drawing, superior networking, video distribution and more. Built-in Wi-Fi technology lets you pair with the free ActiveCaptain® app for access to OneChart™, smart notifications¹, Garmin Quickdraw™ community data and more. You can also control video streaming from our GC™ 100 wireless camera and VIRB® action cameras. In addition, built-in ANT wireless technology connects you directly to our quatix® marine watch, gWind™ Wireless 2 transducer and wireless remote controls.
SmartMode Station Controls
Networked sonar, radar, cameras, media and digital switching can be independent or incorporated into SmartMode station controls. With SmartMode, everything is designed to give you quick, one-touch access to the information you need to ease high-stress situations such as docking.

Other sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider.
