Wide and bright display screen
The Lowrance HDS-7 multi-function display we tested was equipped with an internal broadband sounder and internal GPS sensor. The package shipped with an 83/200 kHz transom-mount transducer.
It also came preloaded with Lowrance Nautic Insight U.S. Coastal cartography. Other gear included is mounting bracket, operations manual, installation manual, quick start guide, and a combination NMEA0183 data/power cable.
Sharp bright high resolution display screen
With its sharp bright high resolution display screen, multifunction soft keys, preloaded cartography, and wide ranging ability to interface with other marine electronics the Standard Horizon CP390i offers lots of bang for the buck. Add in the long 3-year warranty and you have a real deal for boaters seeking a capable chartplotter at a moderate price.
Best value GPS Chart Plotter Fish Finder Combo in its class
The CPF190i comes preloaded with detailed maps for coastal navigation of the USA, Great Lakes, Canada, Hawaii, Mexico and the Bahamas. The best value GPS Chart Plotter Fish Finder Combo in its class, the CPF190i boasts a crisp 320x240 direct sunlight viewable 5-inch color TFT display. The CP190i is capable of navigating you quickly and accurately to your destination. Achieve up to 10' accuracy with the integrated 50 channel WAAS GPS receiver or with the optional external GPS Smart antenna.
Split-screen chart viewing with independent zoom
The CPF390i has a built-in 600W dual frequency (50kHz/200kHz) fishfinder that reaches up to 1,500' deep to quickly locate wrecks, target fish, and record water temperature, all while filtering and sharpening return echoes for a clearer view of what's below. The chartplotter has an internal GPS receiver and built-in C-MAP coastal cartography.
The Garmin 740 is a multifunction display featuring a high resolution 7-inch display with a touchscreen user interface.
Sharp screen details, a powerful processor that makes both 2D and 3D presentations look good and move smoothly, and excellent ease of use ratings for both the plotter and sonar combine to make this Garmin chartplotter fishfinder an excellent buy.
Excellent, though pricey.
I can only give this 4 stars since it won't support the headphone profile for my smartphone. I like to stream radio while I'm driving long distances but I can't with this GPS. There are also some nits to pick with the user interface (such as not remembering the map zoom after a power off) but it is a superb GPS for motorcycles and open-air autos.
The best motorcycle GPS system, hands down
In Summary, the 665 is a worthy next generation motorcycle GPS system. The three negatives are mostly being picky (I can see why Garmin did the change in wiring, and it does make sense), but the positives are outstanding. And although this is a motorcycle designed GPS system, it does well in a car too. Of course, if you don't need the motorcycle design, Garmin makes GPS/XM systems that are probably a lot less expensive, just for cars.
So, bottom line? I have now owned this very expensive piece of equipment for over a week and worked tirelessly to activate the satellite traffic and weather features. I wish that I could change my first review but I'd still have to say that if you want NavTraffic or NavWeather, DO NOT buy this unit until Garmin and XM get their act together, if and when that ever happens. If you don't want these features, just save [...] and buy the 660.
Not nearly enough options for display.
I really want to like this thing, but it keeps disappointing me......iI would not buy this unit again, its lead me that last two out of two times to a wrong address, even though it displays the address i want. the gps provides less detail than the OEM unit in my 2004 Mini cooper, although this unit is only 9 months old. How about this, no type ahead feature? c'mon, is that so revolutionary in this age?
