Serious sport fishermen, cruisers, sailors, and sail racers demand serious equipment. The easy-to-use, easy-to-install GPSMAP 8616xsv Chartplotter/sonar combo delivers MFD performance in a combo-size package. It features a 16” full HD IPS touchscreen display for wider viewing angles, superior clarity, and sunlight readability, even with polarized sunglasses. Multiple displays can be flat mounted edge-to-edge to create a sleek glass helm look or can be mounted flush.
The GPSMAP 8616xsv Chartplotter/sonar combo offers built-in support for our industry-leading sonar, including dual-channel 1 kW traditional CHIRP, CHIRP ClearVü, and CHIRP SideVü scanning sonars plus built-in support for Ultra High-Definition scanning sonar (no black box required). It also supports the entire panoptic all-seeing sonar line (transducers sold separately).
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. They 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.
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 8616xsv 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.

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.
