The New Garmin 7" Plotters Are Shipping...

After months of promises and missed deadlines Garmin finally shipped the first batch of their new 7" plotters.. I got my first one a little over a week ago and am just getting around to mounting and installing it.

I have been quite impressed thus far with it. I have all three wires that will be connected to this plotter, N2K, Power/NEMA 0183 and Radar all run in a single leg of a 1" pedestal guard with room to spare. Course like anything the radar and N2k ends need to be cut off and field replacements need to be installed at additional cost.

For size comparisons this is a 1" Edson pedestal guard.

Sorry for the poor pics using the point & shoot...

Nice simple & clean screen:


Very thin profile:


Multiple options including a CHIRP sounder. Unfortunately no Garmin Marine Network:cussing Connected are Radar, Power/NEMA 0183 & N2K:


The wire organizer slots in the mount base are kind of cool:
