Charge Integration From Power-Pole
CHARGE Marine Power Manager from Power-Pole integrates with compatible Garmin chartplotters to help keep battery power going longer and stronger on the water. Users can charge batteries on the run, monitor power use, select where power is allocated, control emergency starts, and even transfer power between battery banks — all from the chartplotter display.
Garmin Sailassist™ Sailing Features
View laylines, race start line guidance, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider, wind angle, set and drift, wind speed, and more.
Use the polar table to see key data, including how fast users should go at a certain wind angle and speed — so users know whether the sail trim needs to be adjusted.
Garmin Marine Network
If users have multiple compatible Garmin devices on the boat, users can share information — such as maps, user data, radar, and IP camera video — among them.
NMEA 2000® and NMEA 0183 Networks
Connect to compatible autopilots, digital switching, weather, the Fusion audio system, media, VHF, AIS, and more from one screen.

Users can connect a chartplotter to different engines, including select Yamaha® engines.
This feature brings together all the operations and capabilities of select third-party devices, such as EmpirBus™ digital switching, on one screen.
Send InReach® Device Messages
