The plotter GP-1871F with a screen size of seven inches and GP-1971F with a screen size of nine inches come with a flat, buttonless design. They are operated via touchscreen, and swiping gestures should also make the controls as intuitive as on the tablet. However, it can also be operated using a Bluetooth remote control. The user interface can be configured individually. The plotters are compatible with C-Map 4D nautical charts. The plotters each have two SD card slots for importing the map material.
