Today Garmin added two new models to its popular echoMAP 7-inch widescreen combo series - the echoMAP 74dv, preloaded with BlueChart g2 coastal charts, and the echoMAP 75dv that comes preloaded with Canada LakeVü HD mapping. Both devices use an all-in-one traditional HD-ID sonar and DownVü transducer that allows users to have both traditional and DownVü images on the screen.
Garmin DownVü scanning sonar gives you a nearly photographic image of what passes below your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. The 74dv and 75dv also provide HD-ID support for Minn Kota and MotorGuide trolling motors with integrated transducers, and all units in the echoMAP series feature an internal 5 Hz GPS that updates the position and heading five times per second.
The echoMAP 74dv is now shipping and the echoMAP 75dv is expected to be available next month.
