    Garmin Helm allows you to use an Android phone or tablet to view and control a Garmin GPSMAP 5x7, 7x1, 8x0, 10x0, 7400/7600, and 8600 which have built-in Wi-Fi. When paired with a GPSMAP 8000 series chartplotter the Garmin Marine Wi-Fi Adapter is required (sold separately). ** Requires latest chartplotter firmware. **

    • View and control the chartplotter
    • Enhances situational awareness for the mariner
    • Works seamlessly with SmartMode to group chartplotter thumbnails by station when used with a GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm system
    • Easily switch between chart plotters using thumbnail screen preview
    • Connect multiple Android devices simultaneously

    The app is searching for devices all the time and can't discover my Garmin 50dv at all.
