echoMAP 70s is an amazing chartplotter and fishfinder combination, featuring a 7" WVGA touchscreen display with pinch-to-zoom, and it comes with a worldwide basemap or U.S. LakeVü™ HD or BlueChart® g2 offshore cartography for the coastal U.S.
The crystal-clear display provides clear target separation, allows visibility both day and night, and has a user interface that anyone can navigate. Plus, it has multi-touch functions and auto-dimming to enhance your screen views.
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, 77/200 kHz, DownVü™ and SideVü™ scanning sonar, and CHIRP. In addition, it will also support Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motor transducers.
Add the Clearest Images on the Water
Add the optional GCV™ 10 black box sonar to enjoy Garmin DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar with the clearest scanning sonar images on the water.
The echoMAP 70s offers select networking capabilities that allow you to share features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar, supplemental maps, and user data, including waypoints, routes and tracks. User data entered into 1 chartplotter can be automatically synced with other chartplotters in a network.
The echoMAP 70s 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.
