Product Description

The Power of Simple is what happens when very complex, sophisticated technology is made extremely easy for you to use. The premier GPSMAP®: 741 Series brings you that simple operation with 60 percent more processing power than its previous generation for faster zooming and panning. It includes a groundbreaking 7" diagonal WVGA touchscreen with pinch-to-zoom-for a combo that is as intuitive to operate as your smartphone. Built-in high-sensitivity 10Hz Garmin GPS/GLONASS receiver updates position and heading ten times per second to display fluid vessel movement and dramatically improve your ability to mark and navigate to up to 5,000 waypoints.

Also includes full wireless connectivity, media integration, autopilot compatibility, radar support and NMEA 2000 connectivity. GPSMAP 741 Series versions are preloaded with both Garmin U.S. offshore and U.S. lakes cartography.

More Powerful Processor for faster zooming and panning.

See what's below with HD-ID target tracking technology for better separation and definition of images for the clearest possible picture of what lies below. You see fish. You catch fish. Easy.

Experience the advantage of CHIRP: The sonar technology that you've been waiting for is now built into this combo. CHIRP technology sweeps multiple frequencies to better focus on certain fish at certain depths (CHIRP transducer sold separately).

Capture Sonar Recording: Sonar recording coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat's position and saves digital information on the map.

      Comments about Garmin GPSMAP 741xs Fishfinder/GPS Combo, US Coastal/Inland maps, No Transducer:

      This is our third installed Garmin. I had it installed by a professional, with the DownVu transducer. The unit has been hard-wired into my Horizon Eclipse VHF radio to allow for the use of the radio's DSC feature. I was able to easily transfer my 200+ waypoints from our old 740 to the 741. Rather than flush mount, the unit is mounted on top of my console to allow for easy access by the boat driver and passenger, adjustable angle to minimize sun interference, and for easy removal. I remove the unit at night when we are docked overnight for security purposes, and to minimize weathering when stored on the trailer at home.

      The 741XS has noticeably faster processing speeds than the 740, so our position updates on the map more quickly. This is helpful when navigating a narrow channel in the Everglades or locating a lobster hole in the Florida Keys.

      The operations are a little different than the 740, but I learned them very quickly, and after a long weekend, I feel very comfortable navigating around the unit. The touch screen works well, but can be very sensitive. As a cold front passed, we were in rough waters in a downpour. It was sometimes hard to hit the right command on the screen as the boat was rocking and bouncing. Some of the displays they offer are gimicky 3D. We use the standard nav chart mostly.

      We use the unit for some very exacting navigating in the Everglades. Many of the channels are very narrow, surrounded by mudflats, or worse, oyster bars. With the help of my scientist son, we have become adept at utilizing images on Google Earth to establish place waypoints along a passable routes. These are transferred into the Homeport program, then by card to the unit itself.

      The DownVu gives a very clear picture of the bottom. With this transom mounted transducer, I begin to lose signal quality when running above 30mph. We use the wate temperature gauge and tides info.

      This is a great unit, buy it!
