Want to bring a superyacht look to your nav station? The GPSMAP 8000’s low-profile touchscreen display can be recessed into an instrument panel for a true glass-helm appearance or simply mounted flush. The multi-touch, pinch-to-zoom MFD is available with 8, 12 or 15-inch displays, which share a revamped user interface that prioritizes the most important menus and settings in a control bar at the bottom of the screen. Garmin’s new SmartMode control feature lets users customize multiple displays and many of the functions. A black box version, the 8500, can be used with up to 19-inch monitors.

From $3,849. Garmin Ltd., garmin.com
