Garmin HomePort Marine Trip-Planning Software microSD/SD card

Product Code: GARHP

Before heading out on the open water, plan your voyage with HomePort - marine trip-planning software that lets you plan and organise routes from the convenience of your PC (Windows only).

Navigating waters with no visible landmarks or shallow shorelines can be a daunting task for even the most experienced navigator. With your existing BlueChart data together with HomePort on your PC, you’ll have the ability to view map details such as underwater hazards and hidden obstacles and plan a route to avoid them.

HomePort also offers features such as depth profiles, distance and bearing measurements, and tidal predictions.

Compatibility: Compatible with the selected Garmin echoMAP and Garmin GPSMAP models. Click here for full list.

Garmin HomePort Software

Before heading out on the open water, plan your voyage with HomePort - marine trip-planning software that lets you plan and organise routes from the convenience of your PC (Windows only).

Use your existing BlueChart preprogrammed card, or transfer the preloaded maps directly from your chartplotter to an SD card. Then simply plug the card into your computer's card reader to start planning your voyage.

Manage Your Data

In addition to managing waypoints, routes and tracks, you can store information from past voyages right on your computer. HomePort also will help you create point-to-point routes, determine fuel usage and estimate your travel time for each leg of your route - saving you time and money.

View Marine Charts

It’s easy to browse and view chart detail on your computer screen and mark waypoints and other points of interest. When finished, send the data to an SD card or proprietary Garmin datacard to load into your compatible Garmin chartplotter or sounder.
