Marine Network
Using the Marine Network
The Garmin Marine Network allows you to share data from Garmin peripheral devices between
Garmin chartplotters quickly and easily. The GPSMAP 4000 Series units as well as the GPSMAP
5000 series units and previous Garmin Marine Network compatible chartplotter models (such as the
GPSMAP 3010) can be connected to your network to share data. With the Garmin Marine Network,
you can:
• Share GPS data from a GPS 17 antenna wired to one chartplotter with every chartplotter
connected to the Marine Network.
• Share NMEA 0183 data from devices wired to one chartplotter with every chartplotter
connected to the Marine Network.
NOTE: Both the GPS 17 and any NMEA 0183 devices must be connected to the same chartplotter
to achieve the best results when sharing data over the Garmin Marine Network.
Note: If you are using a GSD 21 wired to a GPSMAP 3000 series chartplotter, the data will be
shared with any GPSMAP 4000 series chartplotters connected to the network. All GSD 21 settings
must be configured on the GPSMAP 3000 series chartplotter. A GSD 21 cannot be wired to a
GPSMAP 4000 series chartplotter.
• Share data from Garmin Marine Network devices connected to any chartplotter in the Marine
Network or a GMS 10 Marine Network Port Expander with every other chartplotter connected
to the Marine Network. These devices include:
NOTE: Currently, the XM Satellite service is only available in North America. Any functions of the
GDL 30/30A will only function when used in North America.
• Share BlueChart g2 Vision cartography data from an SD card inserted in one GPSMAP
4000/5000 series chartplotter with every GPSMAP 4000/5000 series chartplotter connected to
the Marine Network.
NOTE: BlueChart g2 Vision cartography is only compatible with GPSMAP 4000/5000 series
chartplotters. Previous Garmin Marine Network compatible chartplotter models (such as the
GPSMAP 3010) can be connected to your network, but they cannot share BlueChart 2g Vision data.
• Transfer waypoint, route and track information from one chartplotter connected to the Garmin
Marine Network to every other chartplotter connected to the Marine Network. The data can
be cloned from one chartplotter to every other connected chartplotter, or the data from every
chartplotter can be merged and shared with every connected chartplotter.

Using Radar
Using Radar
When connected to an optional Garmin Marine Radar such as a GMR 404/406 or GMR 18, you can
view more information about your surroundings. The radar connects through the Garmin Marine
Network and shares radar data with every chartplotter connected to the network.
The Garmin Marine Radar transmits a narrow beam of microwave energy as it rotates in a 360
pattern. When the transmitted energy contacts a target, some of that energy is reflected back to the
radar. You choose how to display the received data on the chartplotter.
Warning: The marine radar transmits microwave energy that has the potential to be harmful to
humans and animals. Before beginning radar transmission, verify that the area around the radar is
clear. The radar transmits a beam approximately 12° above and below a line extending horizontally
from the center of the radar. Avoid looking directly at the radar, because the eyes are the most
susceptible part of the body.
Turning on the Radar:
1. When you power on the network, the radar warms up. A countdown is provided to alert you
when the radar is ready. From the Home screen, press Radar > Cruising.
• As a safety feature, the radar enters standby mode after it warms up. This gives the
operator an opportunity to verify that the area around the scanner is clear before beginning
radar transmission. It is important to remember that the microwave energy transmitted by
the scanner can potentially be dangerous.
2. When the message “Ready to Transmit” appears in the center of the radar display, press and
release the POWER button on the chartplotter (do not hold the button, or you may shut
down the chartplotter.), or press MENU.
3. On the bottom right of the screen, select Transmit Radar. A “Spinning Up” message will
appear for a few moments, then the radar begins painting an image.
