It’s time you started fishing with the power of CHIRP sonar. The easy-to-install, easy-to-use 7-inch echoMAP CHIRP 73sv chartplotter includes transducer for high wide CHIRP sonar and Garmin CHIRP SideVü™ and Garmin CHIRP ClearVü™ for clear scanning sonar images. It supports Panoptix sonar and includes preloaded Quickdraw Contours software to instantly create your own HD maps with 1-foot contours as you fish. Internal 5 Hz GPS updates position and heading 5 times per second. It provides NMEA 2000® support for engine data, sensors, FUSION-LINK™ audio system, autopilots and more. Cords plug directly into the mount, allowing you to quickly install and remove your device from power and mount. Transom and trolling motor mounts included.
The Garmin CHIRP Difference
The built-in sonar capabilities of echoMAP 73sv include CHIRP sonar, the most sophisticated sonar technology available for the fishing and boating public. CHIRP sonar provides amazingly clear target separation and definition because it puts even more energy onto the target than traditional sonar. It also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat's position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using HomePort™ planning software. Use the user data sharing cable to share waypoints and routes between multiple devices.
Clear Scanning Sonar Images
Garmin CHIRP ClearVü and CHIRP SideVü scanning sonars give you nearly photographic, wide images of what’s below and to the sides of your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. Also supports Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motors with integrated transducers.
Preloaded LakeVü HD Maps
These highly detailed freshwater maps include 17,000+ U.S. lakes, rivers and reservoirs (more than double the number of preloaded lakes of any competitor). That number also includes more than 13,000 HD lakes with 1-foot contours shoreline to shoreline (again, 2 times more than our competition). LakeVü HD gives you excellent detail of underwater features, plus Shallow Water Shading allows you to designate a minimum depth. It also shows interstates, highways, general roads and bridges, designated fishing areas, docks, boat ramps, marinas and campgrounds.
Quickdraw Contours to Create Your Own HD Maps
Instantly create personalized HD fishing maps onscreen with 1-foot contours. Tailor them to fit your needs. These are your maps — you own them. Keep the data to yourself, or share it with the Quickdraw Community on Garmin Connect™.
Add Panoptix LiveVü Forward Sonar
With LiveVü Forward your boat can be moving or stationary. Wherever your trolling motor is pointed, you will see live images of what is happening under the water. Watch your lure as it sinks, and see its depth and movement as you retrieve it. See it move in relationship to structures in the water. See fish swimming, reacting to your bait; if they attack, you’ll see and feel the hit. Once on the hook, watch the fight on your screen as it happens. With Panoptix LiveVü Forward, you can see it all come to life up to 100 feet away.
Take Your echoMAP CHIRP with You
When you’re off the water, it’s easy to keep your echoMAP CHIRP safe and secure. You don’t have to mess with plugging and unplugging wires from the unit because the cords plug directly into the mount. This allows you to quickly install and remove your echoMAP CHIRP from power and the mount.
Upgrade to Our Best Maps on the Water
A single microSD™ card slot provides expandable memory for accessory map purchases, such as LakeVü HD Ultra with Max Def Lakes or BlueChart® g2 Vision® HD, which adds Garmin patented Auto Guidance1 and other great features.
GPX Waypoints Transfer
If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturer’s GPS product - or on a Garmin handheld device - now it’s easier than ever to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter, via industry-standard GPX software formatting.
Supported SailAssist features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines and true wind data fields. 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 graphs and a data bar with customizable data fields. To help you gain a wind-maximizing competitive edge, your chartplotter features a pre-race guidance page that shows your virtual starting line along with data fields showing laylines, time to burn before the start and a race timer.
