Navigating to a Point on a Chart
 CAUTION
The Auto Guidance feature of the BlueChart g2 Vision data card is based on electronic chart information. That
data does not ensure obstacle and bottom clearance. Carefully compare the course to all visual sightings and
avoid any land, shallow water, or other obstacles that may be in your path.
When using Go To, a direct course and a corrected course may pass over land or shallow water. Use visual
sightings and steer to avoid land, shallow water, and other dangerous objects.
Note: The Fishing Chart is available if you use a BlueChart g2 Vision data card or a BlueChart g2 data card,
or if your built-in map supports Fishing Charts.

Automatic Identification System
The Automatic Identification System (AIS) enables you to identify and track other vessels.
About AIS
AIS alerts you to area traffic. When connected to an external AIS device, the chartplotter can show some
AIS information about other vessels that are within range, that are equipped with a transponder, and that are
actively transmitting AIS information. The information reported for each vessel includes the Maritime Mobile
Service Identity (MMSI), the location, the GPS speed, the GPS heading, the time that has elapsed since the last
position of the vessel was reported, the nearest approach, and the time to the nearest approach.

Heading and Projected Course of Activated AIS Targets
When heading and course over ground information are provided by an activated AIS target, the heading of the
target appears on a chart as a solid line attached to the AIS target symbol. A heading line does not appear on a
3D chart view.
The projected course of an activated AIS target appears as a dashed line on a chart or a 3D chart view. The
length of the projected course line is based on the value of the projected heading setting (page 16). If an
activated AIS target is not transmitting speed information, or if the vessel is not moving, a projected course
line does not appear. Changes in the speed, the course over ground, or the rate-of-turn information transmitted
by the vessel can impact the calculation of the projected course line.
When course over ground, heading, and rate of turn information are provided by an activated AIS target ➊, the
projected course ➋ of the target is calculated based on the course over ground and the rate of turn information.
The direction in which the target is turning, which is also based on the rate of turn information, is indicated by
the direction of the barb ➌ at the end of the heading line ➍. The length of the barb does not change.

About AIS Search and Rescue Transmitters
AIS Search and Rescue Transmitters (AIS-SART, or SART) are self-contained devices that transmit
emergency position reports when activated. SART transmissions are different than standard AIS transmissions,
so they appear differently on the chartplotter. Instead of tracking a SART transmission for collision avoidance,
you track a SART transmission to locate and assist a vessel.

 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 parts of the body.
When you connect your chartplotter to an optional Garmin marine radar such as a GMR™ 404/406 or a GMR
18/24, you can view more information about your surroundings. The radar connects through the Garmin
Marine Network and shares radar data with all networked chartplotters.
The GMR 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.
Transmitting Radar Signals
1. With the chartplotter off, connect your radar as described in the radar installation instructions.
2. Turn on the network.
The radar warms up and a countdown is provided to alert you when the radar is ready.
NOTE: As a safety feature, the radar enters standby mode after it warms up. This gives you an opportunity
to verify that the area around the radar is clear before beginning radar transmission.
3. From the Home screen, select Radar.
4. Select Harbor, Offshore, Dual Range, Sentry, or Radar Overlay.
A countdown message appears while the radar is starting up, and the “Ready to Transmit” message appears.

A “Spinning Up” message appears for a few moments, and the radar begins painting an image.
Stopping the Transmission of Radar Signals
From the Radar screen, select Menu > Radar to Standby.
Adjusting the Zoom Scale on the Radar Screen
The zoom scale, also called the radar range, represents the distance from your position (the center) to the

Radar Targeting
Radar targeting enables you to identify and track objects.
About MARPA
MARPA is primarily used for collision avoidance, through object targeting and tracking.
To use MARPA, you must assign a MARPA tag to a target. The radar system automatically monitors the
tagged object and provides you with information about the object, including the range, bearing, speed, GPS
heading, nearest approach, and time to nearest approach. MARPA indicates the status of each tagged object
(acquiring, lost, tracking, or dangerous), and the chartplotter can sound a collision alarm if the object enters
your safe zone.

About the Radar Overlay
The Radar Overlay superimposes radar information on the Navigation Chart or the Fishing Chart. Data appears
on the Radar Overlay based on the most-recently used radar mode (Cruising, Harbor, Offshore, or Sentry),
and all settings configurations applied to the Radar Overlay are also applied to the last-used radar mode. For
example, if you use Harbor mode and then you switch to the Radar Overlay, the Radar Overlay would show
Harbor mode radar data. If you changed the gain setting using the Radar Overlay menu, the gain setting for
Harbor mode would change automatically.
The Radar Overlay does not show data based on the Dual Range radar mode, and settings configurations
applied to the overlay are not applied to the Dual Range mode.
Radar Overlay on the Navigation Chart
Radar Overlay and Chart Data Alignment
When using the Radar Overlay, the chartplotter aligns radar data with chart data based on the boat heading,
which is based by default on data from a magnetic heading sensor connected using a NMEA 0183 or NMEA
2000 network. If a heading sensor is not available, the boat heading is based on GPS tracking data.
GPS tracking data indicates the direction in which the boat is moving, not the direction in which the boat
is pointing. If the boat is drifting backward or sideways due to a current or wind, the Radar Overlay may
not perfectly align with the chart data. This situation should be avoided by using boat-heading data from an
electronic compass.
If the boat heading is based on data from a magnetic heading sensor or an automatic pilot, the heading data
could be compromised due to incorrect setup, mechanical malfunction, magnetic interference, or other factors.
If the heading data is compromised, the Radar Overlay may not align perfectly with the chart data.
Showing the Radar Overlay
The Radar Overlay displays data based on the most-recently used radar mode.
From the Home screen, select Radar > Radar Overlay.
The radar picture appears in orange and overlays the Navigation Chart.
Zooming In and Out on the Radar Overlay
Zooming while panning the map only affects the zoom scale of the map. The radar range remains the same.
Zooming while the map is locked on the boat (not panning) affects the zoom scale of the map and the radar
range.

Radar
About the Range of Radar Signals
The range of the radar signal indicates the length of the pulsed signal transmitted and received by the radar. As
the range increases, the radar transmits longer pulses in order to reach distant targets. Closer targets, especially
rain and waves, also reflect the longer pulses, which can add noise to the Radar screen. Viewing information
about longer-range targets can also decrease the amount of space available on the Radar screen for viewing
information about shorter-range targets, unless you are using Dual Range mode (page 66).
Tips for Selecting a Radar Range
• Determine what information you need to see on the radar display. For example, do you need information
about nearby weather conditions or targets and traffic, or are you more concerned about distant weather
conditions?
• Assess the environmental conditions in which the radar is being used. Especially in inclement weather,
longer-range radar signals can increase the clutter on the Radar screen and make it more difficult to
view information about shorter-range targets. In rain, shorter-range radar signals can enable you to view
information about nearby objects more effectively, if the Rain Clutter and FTC settings are configured
optimally.
• Select the shortest effective range, given your reason for using radar and the current environmental
conditions.
Selecting a Radar Range
See “Adjusting the Zoom Scale on the Radar Screen” (page 63).
About Gain and Clutter
The gain controls the sensitivity of the radar receiver. The default setting for the gain, Auto, sets the gain
automatically one time, based on average conditions, the range of the radar signal, and the selected radar
mode. The chartplotter does not readjust the gain automatically in response to changing conditions. To
optimize the radar appearance for specific conditions, manually adjust the gain (page 76).
Clutter is interference caused by the unwanted reflection of radar signals off of unimportant targets. Common
sources of clutter include precipitation, sea waves, and nearby radar sources.
Settings Configurations and Radar Type
When using a GMR non-xHD radar, all gain and clutter settings configured for use in one radar mode are
applied to every other radar mode and to the Radar Overlay.
When using a GMR xHD radar, gain and clutter settings configured for use in one radar mode may or may not
be applied to other radar modes, according to this table.

Appendix
Transmitting NMEA 0183 Data over a NMEA 2000 Network
You can turn on, configure, or turn off output bridging. Output bridging occurs when a chartplotter takes
NMEA 0183 data it receives from any source, formats it into NMEA 2000 data, and sends it over the NMEA
2000 bus.
1. From the Home screen, select Configure > Communications > NMEA 2000 Setup > Output Bridging.
2. Complete an action:
• Select On to enable output bridging from the chartplotter.
• Select Auto to allow the chartplotters on the NMEA 2000 network to negotiate with each other to
determine which chartplotter will perform this function. Only one chartplotter on the NMEA 2000
network can bridge NMEA 0183 data over the NMEA 2000 bus at a time.
All GPSMAP 4000 series and 5000 series units are NMEA 2000 certified.
