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 5000 Series units as well as the GPSMAP
4000 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 is shared
with any GPSMAP 5000 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 5000
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:
GSD 22 digital sounder—provides sonar data when connected to the Garmin Marine
Network and an appropriate transducer. Sonar data is shared by all chartplotters on the
network.
GDL 30/GDL 30A—provides XM WX weather and XM Radio data when connected to
the Garmin Marine Network. XM WX weather data is shared by all chartplotters on the
network. Connect the GDL 30A (GDL 30A only - the GDL 30 unit provides only weather)
to the audio input source on your boat to listen to XM audio. The station can be changed
by any chartplotter on the network.
NOTE: Currently, the XM Satellite service is only available in North America. The GDL 30/30A
functions only work 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 g2 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 you connect your chartplotter 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 all networked chartplotters.
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 12.5° 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.
To Turn 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, touch Radar > Cruising.
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 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, press and release the Power button on
the chartplotter (do not hold the button, or you may shut down the chartplotter). The option to
transmit the radar and return to standby is also available by touching Menu from the Radar
screen.
3. On the bottom right of the screen, touch Transmit Radar. A “Spinning Up” message appears
for a few moments, then the radar begins painting an image.
