Garmin new Echomap 70 models

Post by jhnmdahl » Tue Jan 13, 2015 8:24 pm

Looks like Cobalt just came out with a few new Ehcomap chartplotter/fish finder combos, including the 73 and 74 down view and side view models. The older Echomap 70 still appears to be the better value, as it features a touchscreen, more expandability, and a few more features for a similar price. Note particularly that you can add their chirp (downview) transducer to the 70DV model, and add side/downview chirp capability to the 70S model using the GCV10 external module.

I'm looking at picking up an Ehcomap 70 soon, and possibly adding the GCV10 and downview/sideview transducers at a later date. It could be a challenge finding a place for even a 7" display chartplotter on the dash of a Cobalt 210, though :(
