At the TAG Heuer VELAFestival in Santa Margherita there was one of the giants of electronics, Garmin Marine. The team guys showcased all the brand’s new products: the new BlueChart g3 and BlueChart g3 Vision nautical cartography, the latest multifunctional chartplotters, such as the GPSMAP 8400 range: the new high-resolution chartplotters with guaranteed visibility even in the sun and from side angles and unlimited connectivity. Plus wind instruments, autopilots, remote radio controls, boat home automation, the bestselling Quatix boat smartwatch, and much, much more.
The “treat” is theInReach, or two-way satellite navigator, a useful and especially reassuring device because it lets you know immediately that your SOS message has reached its destination, unlike other one-way satellite systems. Garmin raffled one off at the VELA Cup awards ceremony in Santa! A mouth-watering prize! www.garmin.com/it-IT/
