I have installed a number of the 741XS. Not a single complaint as of yet... The only grumblings were early on about networking two together but they chaged that with a software update...

They make for a nice size at the helm. Not too bulky but with a decent screen size...

Re: GPSMAP 741 reviews?

I just bought a 721xs (which I believe is the same beast, but with slightly different basemap). I've yet to install it, but have played a little at home. So far it seems very good. Networking to my iPad is simple and easy. Display is as advertised. Touchscreen works fine in my limited dry-land testing. Menus are clear and easy to use.

So far, I likes it .

Re: GPSMAP 741 reviews?

Hey,

I have a slightly older unit, the 740S. I'm happy with it. I see that the 741 includes Special Sailing Features:

Supported sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider. Gauge displays are designed to provide important need-to-know information at a glance, including true and apparent wind angle, set and drift, true or apparent wind speed, horizontal or vertical graphs, and a data bar with customizable data fields.

Has anyone played with that and can comment on it? It sounds like it would be great for racing.

Thanks,
Barry

Re: GPSMAP 741 reviews?

All I can say at this point is that those functions are there Barry. I haven't put the unit in service yet, but looks good on my desk.
