The Garmin GPSMap 86sci allows you to hold serious navigational and communications power in the palm of your hand.

Product Information

The Garmin GPSMap 86sci looks like a handheld GPS (with a 3-inch color display and pre-loaded BlueChart g3 coastal mapping), but it’s a whole lot more. The unit incorporates inReach satellite communications, which means you can enjoy two-way texting abilities everywhere you go. And on top of that, wireless streaming means you can use the GPSMap 86sci as an extension of your onboard electronics system, pulling in data from the chart plotter, using the unit as an autopilot remote, and more.
