Garmin GPSMAP 720 Multi Function Display



GPSMAP 720 is a stand-alone touchscreen chartplotter that brings a new level of functionality to your vessel. Featuring a brilliant 7 in (17.78 cm) display, GPSMAP 720 puts all the information you need right at your fingertips. GPSMAP 720 is preloaded with a worldwide basemap and accepts additional map data for greater flexibility. In addition, GPSMAP 720 accepts radar input and offers full NMEA 2000® connectivity for greater convenience when adding extra sensors.

View Worldwide Basemap

GPSMAP 720 comes with a worldwide basemap and features an internal, high-sensitivity GPS receiver for superior satellite tracking and quicker acquisition times. And as an added benefit, GPSMAP 720 can receive graphical weather data for North America through the optional GXM™ 51 satellite receiver/antenna.

Take Control by Touch

Input is easy with GPSMAP 720. Whether you're changing course or simply reviewing information in front of you, the intuitive touchscreen interface makes for simple operation. The device also offers flexible brightness levels for daytime readability along with low-light dimming during night use. And with a widescreen display that's rugged and waterproof, it's made to perform in any situation.

Expand with Radar

Featuring a built-in radar port, GPSMAP 720 can be interfaced with Garmin's line of affordable GMR™ marine radar systems. Whether you're adding radar now or in the future, you'll enjoy the convenience of plug-and-play installation as well as the power, range and high-definition targeting of our proven radar offerings.¹
