Garmin are today now showing a new line of marine chart plotters, their 8000-series. The prices are too rich for most small boaters. The bottom-end 8-inch chart plotter device is priced over $4,000. This is just for the display with some pre-loaded cartography. (Recall that Garmin uses its own brand of electronic charts.) To this you have to add a GNSS receiver and a SONAR as external devices. I suspect that will push the price of an 8-inch display, GNSS receiver, and SONAR to over $5,000.

Take a look:

Here's the infomercial .....

Rumor on the street is the 4000/5000 series will be discontinued with the 6000/7000 series taking their place along with a downward price adjustment.
