Using Surround View’s visual bumper and augmented reality distance markers functions, captains can quickly and easily maneuver the vessel with better situational awareness and to help avoid collisions.

A compatible Garmin chartplotter or MFD, including the GPSMAPÂ® 8400/8600, GPSMAP 7×3 / 9×3 / 12×3 series or Volvo Penta glass cockpit system, is required.
