Re: Garmin ChartPlotter Confusion
Yes, the 742xs is the newer model of the 741xs; those I could find. And I will have to assume that having the connections means that they work on that model. Part of my confusion comes from talking to sales people (I know my own fault) when they indicate that the 7" model does not have the same as the 9" model. The connections images of the older models; the EchoMap Chirp and Plus have not been as easy to find. The older models are, naturally at this time, much less expensive. But they might fit my needs, so I am still interested. The EchoMap Chirp with blue water charts can be had at Hodges for $400 something depending on transducer model. While the 741xs is $699.
Anyway I was just looking for others input and experience with any of these models.
