Howzit, anyone using the garmin 740s? How do you like the unit?
Had a 545s worked good sounder I had sucked though.
I use that model. I love it. I just sent in my g2 vision card for the updated charts. Its a pretty sweet gps.
I've been using it for about a year and I like it. Picked it up from west marine and got the warranty. For some reason mine crapped out after 8 months and they replaced it on the spot no questions asked. I actually think I may have shorted it out somehow in my birdnest of wires. Anyway, performance wise, it's pretty much a normal garmin type GPS with a larger touchscreen and a decent sounder for a combo unit. If I was a bottom fisherman a would definetly want a better FF though.
We use it also. Nice unit. If you get it from west marine, they price match. Check the internet for the lowest price and let them know what website you found it the cheapest. Just make sure it's not a sale or clearance price.
