The Garmin CHIRP Difference
The built-in sonar capabilities of echoMAP 74cv 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.
Clear Scanning Sonar Images
Garmin CHIRP ClearVu scanning sonar gives you a nearly photographic image of what passes below your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects, and fish. Traditional Garmin HD-ID sonar and ClearVu scanning sonar are combined into one transducer. Also provides HD-ID support for Minn Kota and MotorGuide trolling motors with integrated transducers.
Preloaded BlueChart g2 HD Maps
echoMAP 74cv is preloaded with BlueChart g2 HD maps covering the coastal U.S. (East Coast, West Coast, Gulf of Mexico, U.S. and Canadian sides of the Great Lakes). It also includes all U.S. charts for the entire coastline as well as everything available on NOAA charts. In addition to the basic charts, tidal stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols, and included fishing charts, BlueChart g2 offers smooth transitioning between zoom levels and more seamless continuity across chart boundaries. Customize your screens with Shallow Water Shading, which allows you to contour shade for all depth contours shallower than what you determine is your safe depth. Fishing charts emphasize bathymetric contours with less visual clutter on the display. And there's also a choice of standard 2-D direct overhead or 3-D "over-the-bow" map views for easier chart reading and orientation.
Create Your Own HD Maps
Quickdraw Contours is a free, easy-to-use software feature already installed on your echoMAP CHIRP 74cv. It instantly creates your own personalized HD fishing maps on screen with 1' 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.
