Garmin GPSMap 1242xsv Plus

Enjoy an MFD with seamless integration across the Garmin spectrum.

Product Information

If you want a 12-inch touchscreen unit that supports everything from fish finding to radar to engine data via the Garmin Marine Network, NMEA0183/2000 or J1939 connectivity, the GPSMap 1242xsv Plus combo gets the job done. One-kW chirp and ClearVu are built in, and getting Panoptix functionality is just a matter of adding a transducer. Put it all together with things such as OneHelm connectivity or EmpirBus digital switching, and it becomes the hub for your entire digitally connected boat.
