Sharing the same 5" sunlight viewable 320 x 240 pixel (65,000 Colour) LCD display as the other Smarter Chart 500 plotters, it is fully compatible with C-Map MAX electronic charts, providing unprecedented value and detail. Supporting advanced features such as free downloadable weather overlays and forecasts, 3D perspective view, photos, tidal heights and currents, as well as the powerful Guardian Alarm which checks your route for potential charted dangers.
