The Garmin GPSMAP 740S integrates all of Garmin’s top of the line features into a single waterproof, rugged navigation system. This stand alone system has a 7” touchscreen display, internal high-sensitivity antenna, preloaded with US Bluechart coastal maps and is compatible with Garmin Radar and Weather receiver.
Charting The Garmin GPSMAP 740S is preloaded with Garmin’s highly detailed Bluechart data for US Coastal waters, including Alaska and Hawaii as well as Explorer charts for the Bahamas. The 740’s chart detail includes depth contours, spot soundings, navaids and buoys. If that is not enough you can add a Garmin G2 Vision card for expanded views and functionality. G2 Vision SD cards provide MarinerEye view and FishEye view for a 3-d map perspective above and below the waterline. Also included with the purchase of an optional Vision chart are high-resolution satellite images, aerial photographs and auto guidance technology.
Built-in Sounder The 740S comes with a built-in 1kw Fishfinder for more accurate readings and better bottom tracking in waters up to 2000’. The digital filtering system will clean out unwanted echoes and in turn provide the user with more accurate readings.
Radar and Weather Interface It is clear that Garmin designed the 740 S to be as simple to use as possible. The user interface is quick and easy with its 7” touch screen display and the screen’s brightness can be adjusted for different lighting situations. If you haven’t heard enough, don’t worry there is still more. The 740S is also compatible with Garmin’s GMR series radars and has a dedicated radar port for simple installation. The Garmin GMR radars provide accurate targeting which would then be viewable either in split screen, full screen or overlaid on the chartplotter in 2D or 3D modes. Finally to complete the system you can add real-time weather and audio with the purchase of Garmin GXM51 Weather and Audio receiver.
