This Garmin GPS has great color graphics and is easy to see at night with a lot of definition and details of my Lake Norman. Coming home in the dark now is no problem at all and much less stressful. You just follow the brad crumb trial right back into the slip. Awesome product!!
Best Budget Chart/GPS/Fish Finder
This is truly the most amazing device for my boat I have ever owned. I combined it with the fusion marine radio with the NMEA2000 interface and also purchased the same interface for my outboard and now I can control everything from the helm I combined it with the fusion marine radio with the NMEA2000 interface and also purchased the same interface for my outboard and now I can control everything from the helm. The built-in maps For the chart plotter are amazing. And I still haven’t figured out the dozens of variations of the fish finder but I’m certain they will be just as impressive. So if you want to state of the art system for literally pennies then this is the system for you.

I used it for 5 days in Canada and it worked exactly as advertised. Setting waypoints was super easy and I found my way around lakes that were all new to me !! The only thing it didn’t do was help me to catch the fish that were showing on the super clear screen ! Great unit !
Super easy to use, great detail. LakeVu HD Maps
I replaced my Garmin Striker 5dv with this unit. Moved the 5dv to the forward trolling motor on my Tracker V175 Combo. Glad I went with this 73cv model since it has LakeVu maps, touchscreen and bluetooth. I fish Colorado reservoirs mostly and even though they are fairly small the maps are a huge bonus. The improved touchscreen is very responsive. This unit does have smartphone/bluetooth integration, haven’t tried but looks very capable. Can also upgrade via Micro SD card. Also comes with the protective cover which easily snaps on/off. The transducer is easily mountable to the transom or trolling motor, comes with everything for both mounting options. I was on the fence on this but glad I pulled the trigger. Does not have Side View (SV) but I don’t see that much value in Side View for my usage.
Great fish finder! Easy to use with a lot of functions.
I’m from Minnesota. After playing around with it it works great. But it does Have a little more interference than I’d like from others. The built in maps are awesome. So far I haven’t fished a lake that wasn’t on it.
Almost 5 Stars except...
In terms of the features for ICE fishing, it is superior compared to its counterparts around this price range. I’ve only used it for a couple outings this 2019-20 ice season but this product seems to be the companion on ice for the next half decade or more! Everything with this kit is great except:
-The flasher-dial mode has a noticeable lag time. I’ve gotten bites before the fish-mark overlapped my jig-mark. At least an eighth of a second lag time.
-The carrying case is too small! The Transducer has no room to sit properly. And dont even get me started on the float! I have to jam everything into the case just transport it, which could potentially damage the transducer.
-The touchscreen–if your fingers are just slightly dirty, praise the lord that you can adjust your settings without wanting to gouge the screen. Also, when water splashes onto the screen and freezes, it may interact with your options buttons.
Other than these 3 issues, everything about the Garmin Echomap Plus 73cv is awesome. There are many options to play with to adjust to your liking and is user friendly. This flasher has made a noticeable impact to my fishing.
