The GPSMAP 8612 also provides standard USB touch output for use as a touchscreen monitor for Windows® and Mac® operating systems.

Pre-Loaded Cartography
Experience unparalleled coverage and brilliant detail when you’re on the water. BlueChart g3 coastal navigation charts and LakeVü g3 inland maps provide superior coverage, clarity and detail with integrated Garmin and Navionics content bringing you advanced chart detail for navigation as well as up to 1 ft contours for improved fishing.
Integrated Auto Guidance technology uses your desired depth and vessel overhead clearance to calculate routes and show a suggested path to follow — overlaid onto your chart. (Note – Auto Guidance is not meant for actual navigatigation purposes.)

Build Your Marine System
NMEA 2000 networking and the Garmin Marine Network allow you to easily build your full marine electronics suite — from radar and autopilots to cameras, instruments and forward-looking sonar — controlled from your chartplotter and shared across multiple screens.
In addition, Garmin's exclusive OneHelm™ system coordinates many third-party manufactured onboard marine products to bring full control of systems — such as digital switching, lighting, stabilization and more — conveniently to your chartplotter screen.

Full Connectivity
The GPSMAP 8612 chartplotter has a premium-performance processor that enables fast map drawing, superior networking, video distribution and more.
Built-in Wi-Fi technology lets you pair with the free ActiveCaptain® app for access to OneChart™, smart notifications when paired with a compatible smartphone, Garmin Quickdraw™ community data and more.
You can also control video streaming from Garmin's GC™ 100 wireless camera and VIRB® action cameras.
In addition, built-in ANT wireless technology connects you directly to Garmin's quatix® marine watch, gWind™ Wireless 2 transducer and wireless remote controls.

SmartMode Station Controls
Networked sonar, radar, cameras, media and digital switching can be independent or incorporated into SmartMode station controls. With SmartMode, everything is designed to give you quick, one-touch access to the information you need to ease high-stress situations such as docking.

The Best of Garmin with the Best of Navionics®
In addition to the pre-loaded chart and map packages, the expandable memory allows you to upgrade your maps with accessory map purchases such as Canadian charts or the premium BlueChart® g3 Vision and LakeVü g3 Ultra – with added features such as high resolution relief shading and satellite imagery. Refer to the Garmin website GPSMAP 8612 product entry for the full selection of available charts and maps.

Optional Remote Control
You don’t have to stand for hours at the helm. The optional easy-to-use GRID™ 20 remote input device provides intuitive remote access and control of your entire Garmin marine system. It features a 360-degree joystick with a rotary knob and push-to-select button for easy chartplotter menu/setting navigation and fine control, even in the worst conditions.
