The Best Of Boat WorldsTM

The new GPSMAP 86 series of handhelds are just the thing for daysailors and pocket cruisers. They come in four models, with the top of the line 86si coming equipped with built-in Garmin/Navionics charts and inReach satellite functionality. They sport sunlight readable 3 inch color screens with keyboards that are easy to use while in motion or wearing sailing gloves. They can even interact with and display information from whatever compatible devices you have on board (like depth, speed, wind) when connected to wireless internet. They can even remote control your autopilot. Rechargeable batteries provide up to 35 hours of operation. $650 from Garmin. But shop around. We’re seeing them even cheaper.
