A few anglers may have glimpsed Geonav's G12 Multi-Function Display (pictured here) at the Fort Lauderdale boat show in late October. That was the brand's debut to the American public. But the company gave editors a closer look in December at several of Geonav's offerings, including radar, autopilot and sonar. This G12 display shows a triple-pane view - C-Map vector charting (left) with 50-channel GPS positioning, HD Ethernet Radar (top right) and XD sonar (bottom right.)

When an angler chooses to run C-Map cartography, he can look at two formats side-by-side: a vector chart on the left and raster on the right.
