Get a sharper view from your connected helm with the GPSMAP® 1243 chartplotter. It's high-resolution 12” in-plane switching touchscreen and ultra-sleek design seamlessly integrate into your Garmin marine system, putting full control at your fingertips. Preloaded Garmin Navionics+™ coastal charts and inland mapping feature Auto Guidance+™ technology (Auto Guidance+ is for planning purposes only and does not replace safe navigation operations) for helping you get where you need to go. Plus, there’s support for optional Garmin Navionics Vision+™ premium map content. Easily build your marine system — from compatible sonar and autopilots to compatible radar, cameras and multimedia — by using HTML 5.0, NMEA 2000® and NMEA 0183 networking, J1939 for engines, and the Garmin Marine Network. Add FrontVü™ forward-looking sonar (sold separately). (The ability to effectively avoid forward collisions with FrontVü sonar decreases as speed rises above 8 knots[HT1] ) which can help in avoiding underwater obstructions ahead. Or pair your plotter with your other compatible Garmin devices, such as quatix® smartwatches, wind transducers, wireless remote controls, and more.
