There’s no learning curve. Touch one key and things happen.
Plotter, radar, sounder and video are all equally easy to use. These units are intuitively easy. Stand-alone or an integrated system, they’re smart. You pick the display size you want, you choose the functions you need. Start simple, it stays simple, no matter how big the boat, how many stations or how many functions you add. It’s all about flexibility. The 6k series offers total integration. Hardware. Software. Upgrades. Plug it in and turn it on. Total control. Networkable combo Chartplotter, Fishfinder, Radar, Video.
The engineers call it a network
N2 Technology is Northstar’s method for moving information around your boat. You don’t see it, but it’s the workhorse inside your unit. Enter a waypoint on one display, and see the waypoint on every display. Insert a Navionics® chart card in the master unit and N2 makes that chart data available to all other units on the boat (as though the card were plugged into each unit). Add a radar to your 6100i or 6000i, and all units can display and control radar.
N2 is what moves that radar overlay up to the tower. N2 is what allows you to navigate from the flybridge or the tower. N2 puts the sounder display in the cockpit. N2 is what lets you do anything from anywhere.
Northstar’s 6k series gives you crisp, clear screen choices of 15, 12, 10.4, 8.4 and 6.4 inch displays. They are the perfect setup for center consoles or sport cruisers. Want functionality, but don’t have much space? Then the 6k series is your answer. Pick a single function, or pick them all! Plotter, radar, sounder, video, multi-function displays, split screens, and overlays all via one button.
The Northstar 6k series chartplotter /GPS is the core of the integrated navigation system. Concise, crystal-clear Navionics® cartography presented on full-color displays with blindingly fast speed, with award winning Platinum cartography available on the 6100i, all at the touch of a single key. Each size comes standard with GPS and WAAS. Touch-of-a-key simple and vintage Northstar.

Optional Equipment Required
When you combine the Northstar 491 Sounder with the 6k series navigation and radar functions, the performance is just plain awesome. Unless you’re a fish.
True color radar
Radar was designed to be part of the 6k series’ integrated navigation system. You don’t “learn” this radar. You use it. Night or day, the clarity of information verges on inspirational. Use the image in chart-overlay or split-screen mode and even the most daunting passages become a snap. Range Rider, a Northstar exclusive, automatically saves your tuning adjustments for each range. When you go back to a range, the settings you’ve made are already there.
Radar data can be presented in North Up, Course up, Leg Up and Head up and of course you can overlay the radar on the charts. Add a radar when you’re ready. You choose the power and the antenna you want. It’s a very sophisticated radar, yet a very flexible part of the 6k system.
Video - It’s everywhere
The 6k series integrated system has NTSC video input and VGA output. Perfect for docking/engine monitoring/underwater cameras, DVD and TV. Just press the video key. It’s full of remote possibilities. Football next to the sounder display in the cockpit. Radar displayed on the TV*, or any external monitor/display. Giving you sizeable video from any source on the boat.
