Garmin echoMAP 741xs

GPSMAP 741xs combination chartplotter/sounder allows for easy visibility, day or night. Whether it is flat-, flush- or gimble-mounted, it will be the focal point of your helm. It has media integration and autopilot compatibility, radar support, and NMEA 2000 and wireless connectivity. It includes Garmin's hallmark user-friendly interface as well as both BlueChart g2 coastal and LakeVü HD inland mapping for the U.S.

Product Features:

  • 7-inch WVGA touchscreen display with pinch-to-zoom
  • 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver
  • HD-ID™ sonar
  • NMEA® 2000 and wireless connectivity
  • Includes both BlueChart® g2 U.S. coastal and LakeVü™ HD U.S. inland mapping

Super-fast 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS - With the integration of a 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver, the 741xs refreshes position and heading up to 10 times per second. It displays constant and fluid on-screen location and proves to be incredibly accurate when marking waypoints and navigating.

Advanced Sonar Support - Built-in support for a wide selection of Garmin transducers, including 50/200 kHz, 77/200 kHz, DownVü™ scanning sonar and CHIRP. In addition, it will also support Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motor transducers.

Allow networked combos to share their internal sonar with any other device on the network. GPSMAP 741xs also gives you the flexibility to choose what information is overlaid on the sonar screen. For example, time of day or GPS speed.

It also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat's position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software

Add the Clearest Scanning Images on the Water - Add the optional GCV™ 10 scanning sonar module to enjoy Garmin DownVü and SideVü™ scanning sonar with the clearest scanning sonar images on the water.

Advantages of CHIRP Technology - When used with a compatible CHIRP transducer (sold separately), GPSMAP 741xs displays crystal-clear sonar images to help find the next hidden fishing spot, ship wreckage or diving location. Garmin CHIRP sonar allows you to see target separation and resolution at extraordinary depths, and dial into specific frequencies to target certain species of sport fish. Bottom contours are more visible, and signal noise can be suppressed at greater depths to provide a more timely interpretation of what’s below for safer navigation and better fishing.

NMEA 2000 Support - This combo allows you to add more capabilities to your boat. It provides NMEA 2000 support so you can see valuable information on your screen for autopilot, engine data, SiriusXM weather and more.

Radar Support - Add your choice of marine radar, either open array or our new xHD dome radar that pair ease of use with advanced open array features.

Networking -The GPSMAP 741xs offers select networking capabilities that allow you to share features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as supplemental maps, and user data, including waypoints, routes and tracks. User data can be automatically synced with other chartplotters in the network.

Special Features for Sailing - Supported sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider. Gauge displays are designed to provide important need-to-know information at a glance, including true and apparent wind angle, set and drift, true or apparent wind speed, horizontal or vertical graphs, and a data bar with customizable data fields.

Compatible with gWind Transducers - Garmin gWind, gWind Wireless and gWind Race transducers feature twin-fin technology with 3-bladed propeller. Connect to the NMEA 2000 and compatible Garmin chartplotters via the GND 10 black box bridge.

View and Control Your Device from a Smartphone or Tablet - Garmin Helm™ allows you to view and control your compatible Garmin chartplotter from an iPhone® or iPad® or phone, or phone or tablet using Android™ — while providing enhanced situational awareness for the mariner. Easily switch between portrait and landscape mode to accommodate mounting preferences. Using your iPhone or iPad, you can even record a movie of your chartplotter screen to share with friends and family. Download from the App Store™ or Google Play™ today.

Get Your Apple® Device Onboard with BlueChart® Mobile - With BlueChart Mobile, a free app downloaded from the App Store, you can plan marine routes on your iPad or iPhone then wirelessly transfer them to your boat’s compatible networked Garmin chartplotter. Even if you don’t have a Garmin chartplotter, you can still take advantage of the tremendous features of BlueChart on your Apple device.

Enhanced Auto Guidance - Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto Guidance technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a safe virtual pathway on the display that helps you avoid low bridges, shallow water and other charted obstructions en route.

Better still, with enhanced Version 2.0, you now have access to even more features and capabilities. You’re able to adjust the calculated Auto Guidance pathway by inserting “via” points at interim stops or landmarks along your desired route. You can easily review hazard points along your calculated path. And you can even engage your compatible Garmin autopilot to follow the Auto Guidance route, automatically. Other 2.0 enhancements give you the ability to calculate arrival times at any point on your route (great for timing arrivals to correspond with bridge openings and other time-critical events). Better still, you can now save your plotted Auto Guidance paths for future navigation by backing them up on an SD™ card with your BlueChart® g2 Vision® or Lake Vü™ HD Ultra cartography (BlueChart® g2 Vision® or LakeVü™ HD Ultra SD card is required for this technology.)

GPX Waypoints Transfer - If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturer’s GPS product – or on a Garmin handheld device – now it’s easier than ever to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter, via industry-standard GPX software formatting. GPX is an open standard format for GPS data exchange across platforms and applications. With this easy-to-use interface technology, Garmin has taken “no waypoint left behind” to a whole new level of trade-up convenience.

Panoptix™ Down Transducer - With 1 Panoptix Down transducer, you get 3 remarkable views, allowing you to actually see fish and bait swimming around under your boat – in real time. You can even see fish in the water column in 3-D, from the bottom to the surface. You can be stationary yet still see things in 3-D below your boat.

Panoptix Forward Transducer - One Panoptix Forward transducer provides 2 impressive views, even while your boat is stationary. It shows the bottom plus fish and bait swimming in the water column in front of your boat – in real time. You can even see your lure as you reel it in. You can also get 3-D views of fish and structure in front of your boat.
