The new Surround View from Garmin serves as an intelligent, six-camera system that offers a 360-degree bird’s-eye view around the boat to eliminate blind spots and maximize visibility, situational awareness and safety around the vessel in tight maneuvering situations, such as docking in a crowded marina. The 1080p cameras include a forward-looking camera at the bow, a rear-looking camera aft, and two side-looking cameras, one each on port and starboard. Surround View displays a full overhead stitched image with 360-degree real-time video views from around the vessel directly on compatible Garmin chart plotters or multifunction displays. Captains can view one or two cameras simultaneously with the bird’s-eye image, and even zoom in and pan around with individual camera views. It also provides a number of augmented reality features, including a visual bumper and distance markers. Available as an OEM option on new boats only; garmin.com.
