Default 24 inches of GARMIN


Premium 24-inch full HD display with pinch-to-zoom touchscreen control has highest resolution on the marine market
Configure the full system to provide 1-touch setting access for docking, cruising, fishing, anchoring and more
Beautiful glass helm look with ability to install multiple displays either flush or flat mounted edge-to-edge
High-performance processor delivers our fastest map drawing ever and enhanced video processing
Provides a superior user experience across your entire network for radar, sonar and multimedia
GPSMAP 8624 large-format multifunction display features a 24-inch full HD screen with touch control. Sunlight-readable, anti-glare display is exceptionally easy to view and also includes auto-dimming feature for use in low light or at night. New maximum glass design enables you to experience a beautifully powerful, completely networked helm at your fingertips. In-plane switching (IPS) LCD display — an industry first for this class — provides consistent, accurate colors from all viewing angles. It also provides standard USB touch output for use as a touchscreen monitor for Windows® and Mac® operating systems. Install multiple displays with the industry’s lowest flush-mount profile or flat mount them edge-to-edge to create a sleek glass helm look. Quick, 1-touch access to the information you need makes boating easier.

Preloaded BlueChart® g2 Charts


Preloaded BlueChart g2 charts for the coastal U.S., Canada and Bahamas are included. In addition to the basic charts, tidal stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols and included fishing charts, BlueChart g2 offers smooth transitioning between zoom levels and more seamless continuity across chart boundaries. You can customize your screens with Shallow Water Shading, which allows you to shade all depth contours shallower than what you determine is your safe depth. Fishing charts emphasize bathymetric contours with less visual clutter on the display. And there’s also a choice of standard 2-D direct overhead or 3-D “over-the-bow” map views for easier chart reading and orientation.

Preloaded Garmin LakeVü™ HD Maps

These highly detailed freshwater maps include more than 17,000 U.S. lakes, rivers and reservoirs. Included in those are more than 13,000 HD lakes with 1-foot contours shoreline to shoreline and excellent detail of underwater features plus Shallow Water Shading that allows you to designate a minimum depth. Also includes interstates, highways, general roads and bridges, designated fishing areas and points of interest, such as docks, boat ramps, marinas and campgrounds.
Full System Integration


GPSMAP 8624 integrates various sonar technologies as well as autopilot, connectivity, apps, engine data and multi-media. User data can be automatically synced for all networked 8400/8600 series chartplotters across multiple helms — everything you need is at your fingertips, all on 1 screen. A full digital switching system uses CZone technology. You can power up your boat while away from the dock, switch on pumps and control lights — even underwater lights. Nearly all of your controls are available right at your fingertips either at the helm or programmed into a remote key fob or an app on your tablet provided by CZone by Mastervolt.

New High-performance Processor

Experience the fluidity of our fastest map drawing ever and enhanced video processing. Add up to 4 IP camera streams and simultaneous Garmin Helm™ support. In addition, all your added sensors, such as radar, sonar, multimedia and more, will benefit from the increased performance to provide a premium experience across your boat’s entire network.
Customize Layouts with SmartMode™ Control

To make boating easier, GPSMAP 8624 includes presets for sonar, radar, cameras, media and digital switching, which can be independent or incorporated into SmartMode. With SmartMode control, you can quickly change all screens at a helm in sync to a preset mode, for example, fishing, docking, night cruising, etc. One-touch access allows you to switch all monitors in sync from 1 mode to another without manually switching each monitor separately. Fully customizable layouts, data and gauges allow you to place the information you need to see right where you want it.
Garmin Marine Network and NMEA 2000® Network Support

Full-network compatibility allows you to add more to your boat. GPSMAP 8624 supports radar, autopilot, instruments, multiple screens, FUSION-Link™ entertainment system, sensors, remote sonar modules, digital switching, weather, thermal cameras, GRID™ remote device and more. It’s also FLIR camera compatible and provides SiriusXM support.

View Multiple Sonar Sources Simultaneously

GSD™ 26 CHIRP professional sonar, GSD 24 advanced sonar, and GCV™ 10 or GSD 25 DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar, even Garmin Panoptix™ all-seeing sonar, can exist on the same system. You can view various sonars together on 1 monitor or across multiple monitors in multi-display systems.

Add Array or Dome Radar

You can add your choice of Garmin marine radar, including our powerful xHD2 open-array radars, GMR Fantom™ open-array radars with MotionScope™ technology or xHD dome radars that pair ease of use with advanced open-array features.
Network Sharing

GPSMAP 8624 allows you to share features with other compatible GPSMAP units such as radar, supplemental maps and user data, including waypoints, routes and tracks. You can also share images from Garmin VIRB® action cameras, GC™ 10 marine cameras and FLIR cameras. User data entered into 1 chartplotter can be automatically synced with other chartplotters in a network.
Heading, Position Refreshed 10 Times per Second

Fast, responsive built-in 10 Hz GPS refreshes your position and heading 10 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. Now, it’s quick and easy to drop up to 5,000 accurate waypoints and find your way back to them.

SailAssist Features

Supported sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider. Racing features include pre-race guidance, synchronized race timer, virtual starting line, time to burn and layline data fields. Gauge displays are designed to provide important, need-to-know information at a glance, including true and apparent wind angle, set and drift, true or apparent wind speed, horizontal or vertical graphs and a data bar with customizable data fields.
Create Your Own HD Maps


Quickdraw Contours is a free, easy-to-use software feature that is already installed on your GPSMAP 8624. It instantly creates your very own personalized HD fishing maps with 1-foot contours. Tailor them to fit your needs. They are your maps. You own them. Keep the data to yourself or share it with Garmin or your friends. There’s no special surveying expertise required. You just fish while it creates maps. You don’t have to wait around or send your files away like other mapping software requires — your results appear instantly. Use with any Garmin Panoptix, any HD-ID™, any CHIRP-enabled, Garmin DownVü™ transducer or NMEA 2000-compatible depth transducer. Have more than 1 sonar device installed onboard? Quickdraw Contours automatically selects the most capable sonar device to provide the very best results for you!
Upgrade to Our Best Maps on the Water


Add a Garmin Card Reader that provides convenient remote mounting and a single access point for 2 SD™ card slots for accessory map purchases such as LakeVü HD Ultra with MaxDef Lakes, BlueChart g2 HD or BlueChart® g2 Vision® HD, which add Garmin-patented Auto Guidance 3.0 and other great features. You can add multiple card readers for additional access points. Waterproof magnetic door allows card reader to be mounted horizontally or vertically (sold separately).
FUSION-Link Entertainment System

Enjoy the ability to control all compatible FUSION-Link-enabled audio systems directly from your compatible chartplotter display.
Built-in Connectivity

It’s easy to connect to peripheral devices with built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity, ANT® technology, 4 wired Ethernet ports, NMEA 2000, HDMI and USB ports with complete network compatibility. It’s easier than ever to enjoy the full range of features provided by Garmin Helm and BlueChart® Mobile apps.
View, Control Your Device from a Smartphone or Tablet

Garmin Helm allows you to view and control your compatible chartplotter from a compatible smartphone or tablet while providing enhanced situational awareness for the mariner. Easily switch between portrait and landscape modes to accommodate mounting preferences. When using an iPhone® or iPad®, you can even record a movie of your chartplotter screen to share with friends and family.
Get Onboard with BlueChart Mobile

With BlueChart Mobile 2.0, a free app downloaded from the App Store™, you can get reliable weather information while you plan marine routes on your iPad or iPhone then wirelessly transfer them to your boat’s compatible networked Garmin chartplotter. Continue to acquire current weather information from your cellular-based Apple® device, and stream that data onto your chartplotter screen. Even if you don’t have a Garmin chartplotter, you can still take advantage of the tremendous features of BlueChart Mobile on your compatible Apple device.

The 24 inch unit is very impressive to say the very least.

This is the Huk Freeman 37 with a 24" and 19" Simrad. A picture is worth a thousand words, but seeing this thing in person is unbelievable.

Lots of big monitors out there, but how many are MFD's? Home monitors are dirt cheap.

From experience, household monitors are terrible for this use. In a wheelhouse during the day fine, but at night and bright situations they stink!

That is an individual decision, we all have different budgets, requirements, and vessel usage.

I watched TV for a good part of my life on 19" picture tube portable Televisions and now everyone has a huge flat screen or even curved tv.

With glass helms the new thing these 24 inch monitors are amazing.

I wonder who will be the first to market with a curved large format MFD screen?

It looks really sweet and I will keep it in mind if and when I win the lottery and order my new Bayliss! Until then I figure I will just slum it with the two 12" Simrads!

I have been sail fishing out of Stuart on two different friends boats that have a pair of 24 inch garmin screens. They are a pleasure to use. Easier to use then my old Navnet also.
