The Garmin CHIRP Difference
The built-in sonar capabilities of echoMAP 73dv include CHIRP sonar, the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public. CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. 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 (not included). Use the user data sharing cable to share waypoints and routes between multiple devices.
Clearest Scanning Sonar on the Water
Garmin CHIRP DownVu scanning sonar gives you a nearly photographic image down to 750 feet below your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects, and fish. Traditional Garmin HD-ID sonar and DownVu scanning sonar are combined into one transducer. Also provides HD-ID support for Minn Kota and MotorGuide trolling motors with integrated transducers.
Preloaded LakeVu HD Maps
These highly detailed freshwater maps include 17,000+ U.S. lakes, rivers and reservoirs. That number also includes more than 13,000 HD lakes with 1' contours shoreline to shoreline. LakeVu HD gives you excellent detail of underwater features, plus Shallow Water Shading allows you to designate a minimum depth. It also shows interstates, highways, general roads and bridges, designated fishing areas, docks, boat ramps, marinas, and campgrounds.
Create Your Own HD Maps
Quickdraw Contours is a free, easy-to-use software feature already installed on your echoMAP CHIRP 73dv. It instantly creates your own personalized HD fishing maps on screen with 1-foot contours. Tailor the maps as needed; you own them. Keep the data for yourself or share it with Garmin or your friends. No special surveying expertise is required. You just fish while Quickdraw Contours creates maps. There's no waiting around or sending your files away like other mapping software requires; your results appear instantly.
Heading and Position Refreshed 5 Times per Second
Fast, responsive 5 Hz GPS/GLONASS refreshes your position and heading 5 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. Now it's quick and easy to drop up to 5,000 accurate waypoints and find your way back to your secret fishing hot spots.
Take Your echoMAP with You
When you're off the water, it's easy to keep your echoMAP safe and secure. You don't have to mess with plugging and unplugging wires from the unit because the cords plug directly into the mount. This allows you to quickly install and remove your echoMAP from power and the mount.
Upgrade with the Best Garmin Maps on the Water
A single microSD card slot provides expandable memory for accessory map purchases such as LakeVu HD, LakeVu HD Ultra, or BlueChart g2 Vision. LakeVu HD Ultra and BlueChart g2 Vision provide exclusive Garmin Auto Guidance, a technology that directs you to your hot spots. Based on your boat's specifications, Auto Guidance instantly creates a visual path you can follow to avoid shallow water and other charted obstructions.
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.
