Garmin GPSMap 8616xsv

A 16-inch MFD with a glass-bridge look.

Product Information

Nothing’s worse than gazing at a big, glorious 16-inch display, only to have the screen go blank when you put on your sunglasses and try to view it from an angle. That won’t be an issue with Garmin’s GPSMap 8616xsv, which features a full HD in-plane-switching touchscreen display. As one would demand from an MFD of top caliber, the 8616xsv has the brain power to drive everything from radar to chirp and side-scanning sonar without needing add-on black boxes. And thanks to Garmin’s OneHelm, it can also integrate with third-party systems such as those of the major engine manufacturers.
