Garmin echoMAP 73sv

This unit is on sale today online. I don't need anything crazy but need a decent unit for marking bottom in 0-150' depths and must be able to have current position of vessel coordinates and sonar on same screen. Anyone know anything about this model good or bad?

    Great unit for small boats BUT beware of bait and switch. The BassPro or West Marine advertisement seems cheap but only has Lakeview charts not the Coastal Charts which might be another $199.99. Further, some units come with the transducer and others don't. I have the 73dv, same unit but not side view, which is the sv. Unit does up to three different screens, great graphics with the coastal chart chip. Very easy to use. I have it on my 22 foot bay boat.

    Thanks for the info. Fortunately realized that before buying. I was looking at the 73dv today at west marine. It's on sale until Christmas, pretty sure I'll go with it.
