Super-fast 10 Hz GPS/GLONASS
With the integration of a 10Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver, the 70s refreshes position and heading up to 10 times per second. It displays constant and fluid on-screen location and proves to be incredibly accurate when marking waypoints and navigating.

Advanced Sonar Support
Built-in support for a wide selection of Garmin transducers, including 50/200 kHz and 77/200 kHz. In addition, echoMAP 70s will also support Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motor transducers.
It also allows networked combos to share their internal sonar with any other device on the network. You have the flexibility to choose what information is overlaid on the sonar screen. For example, time of day or GPS speed.
