Garmin 7400xsv series – the most powerful MFD yet

Garmin’s new GPSMAP 7400xsv series of premium multi-function displays (MFD) combines powerful performance with a renowned interface to deliver a range of class-leading features in a fully-networkable, simple-to-use package.

Boasting a vibrant widescreen display with full pinch-to-zoom touchscreen capabilities, the GPSMAP 7400xsv series is offered in five sizes – 7407xsv (7”), 7408xsv (8″), 7410xsv (10″), 7412xsv (12”) and 7416xsv (16”) – to cater for all types of vessels from sportfishers to cruisers to yachts.

Built-in features such as digital switching, weather, radar, thermal and IP camera visibility, along with dedicated sailing features such as laylines, tidal information, enhanced wind rose, a current slider and other elements will strike a chord among cruisers and sailors.

For anglers, the GPSMAP 7400xsv series also integrates Garmin’s premier sonar technology – traditional HD-ID™ sonar, true dual 1kW CHIRP sonar, CHIRP ClearVü™ and CHIRP SideVü™ – to deliver the clearest scanning sonar on the planet along with unequalled target detail and separation. Compatible with a wide range of transducers, the GPSMAP 7400xsv is also compatible with Garmin’s new Panoptix™ all-seeing sonar, making them the most powerful MFDs yet.

Whether fishing a secret spot or cruising the coast, the GPSMAP 7400xsv series has cartography covered with a preloaded worldwide basemap, while a built-in 10Hz GPS antenna allows for faster and more accurate position tracking and updates (10 times per second).

The GPSMAP 7400xsv series is also compatible with BlueChart® g2 and BlueChart g2 Vision maps. Along with adding 3D-views, underwater views and aerial photos, BlueChart g2 Vision also adds Garmin Auto Guidance, which eliminates the hassle of entering different waypoints to create a route to your destination. Simply move the cursor on the map to where you want to go and it will automatically plan the route from your vessel’s current location – avoiding shallow water and other charted obstructions. When networked with a Garmin autopilot, the system will also take you safely to your destination.

If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently-used routes stored on another manufacturer’s GPS product – or on a Garmin handheld device – the GPSMAP 7400xsv series makes it easier than ever to transfer those items via industry-standard GPX software formatting. With this easy-to-use interface technology, Garmin has taken ‘no waypoint left behind’ to a whole new level of trade-up convenience.

As fully-networkable MFDs, the GPSMAP 7400xsv series allows you to share and sync data and features with other compatible GPSMAP units, such as sonar, radar, supplemental maps and user data, including waypoints, routes and tracks.

With built-in Wi-Fi, the BlueChart Mobile and Garmin Helm mobile apps can seamlessly interface with the GPSMAP 7400xsv series, while FUSION-Link-enabled audio systems can also be controlled directly from the touchscreen display.
