Anne – Marine Cameras, on Jun 16, 2014 asked:

Does PYS sell any equipment that allows us to fish while viewing a screen showing where our boat is heading via a mounted camera? We currently have Garmin electronics.

Hi Anne,

The short is yes.

Marine cameras can be easily integrated to modern chartplotters. Garmin sells one of those cameras for about $400. Depending on the model of your Chartplotter you might need a pigtail adapter to connect the camera to your Chartplotter.

In terms of visibility, those cameras have a limited field of vision and are certainly no exact replacement for have a forward looking helmsman.
