GPSMAP 740 contains preloaded map data for all U.S. coastal areas, including Alaska and Hawaii, plus Explorer Charts for the Bahamas. GPSMAP 740 also features an internal, high-sensitivity GPS receiver for superior satellite tracking and quicker acquisition times. And as an added benefit, GPSMAP 740 can receive graphical weather data for North America through the optional GXM™ 51 satellite receiver/antenna (sold separately).

Input is easy with GPSMAP 740. Whether you’re changing course or simply reviewing information in front of you, the intuitive touchscreen interface makes for simple operation. The device also offers flexible brightness levels for daytime readability along with low-light dimming during night use.

Expand with Radar

Featuring a built-in radar port, GPSMAP 740 can be interfaced with Garmin’s line of affordable GMR™ marine radar systems (sold separately). Whether you’re adding radar now or in the future, you’ll enjoy the convenience of “plug-and-play installation” as well as the power, range and high-definition targeting of our proven radar offerings.¹
