Garmin (www.garmin.com) has two new MFD series for 2010, but they're easier to understand as they're essentially higher-end versions of the continuing 4000 and 5000 series. The main new feature is graphics processing so enhanced that Garmin's dubbing the result G Motion. Need I mention that among the dramatic improvements is 3D viewing? The new GPSMap 6000 series comes in 8- and 12-inch sizes, costing $3,000 and $4,000 respectively, while the touch-screen 7000 series comes in 12- and 15-inch models, priced at $5,000 and $7,000. Incidentally, if you haven't seen any of Garmin's networked MFDs since last summer's major 5.0 software update, then you're not really familiar with their current features and performance. Garmin also refreshed all of its 4- and 5-inch plotters last summer, adding NMEA 2000 interfaces that can make for more reliable installations. Finally, all owners of recent Garmin plotters should check out HomePort, a $30 program that makes it possible to use a Garmin Vision chart card, or even a plotter's built-in charts, for route planning, track saving, and more on your PC.
