Garmin echoMAP technique 73sv CHIRP
The sonar technology used in this system is a great addition to any cruise, not only for fishing trips but also. It will have a clear view and picture of everything below and by your boat’s sides. This simplifies navigation and helps you to know your waters to a greater degree than just the surface.

Significantly distinguishes target separation and meaning as more energy is focused on the target compared to other sonars. The Garmin echoMAP 73sv has unique recording capabilities to allow quick replay on a device for the extra surprise.

HD Maps Preloaded from LakeVu
Sometimes you buy a device, and just want the manufacturers to add a bit more to the technology. Well, this device is not going to make you feel that disappointed. It just goes extra mile for you. Double the number of freshwater maps and lakes in the U.S., giving you a detailed view of the interstates, highways, docks, fishing areas, campground marinas and much more.

However there is space for you to use the shallow water shading to set your minimum depth. It gives you the much-needed flexibility on any water sources that may not be preloaded into it to use this tool.

Customer reviews and ratings

Overall the Garmin echoMAP 73sv HD has great reviews with over four-star ratings from customers who love their new device. One client opted for a better anti-glare screen and still gave it a 4-star rating.

However, most customers are enormously impressed by the addition of the transducer that complements the sonar technology. In particular, one customer said, “It came with a transducer that may be a plus for me because there are so many resellers in Hong Kong ….”

I would certainly recommend it for all of your boat and fishing expeditions despite the great reviews from checked consumer transactions and my personal experience.


The 73sv is a great accessory for all activities concerning the water body. Thanks to the HD echolocations found in the echoMap 73sv, it provides a versatile range of information for any given water body, and the location of any underground obstacles.

Every day take it out and get the full experience of a tool that not only provides you with what you need but goes the extra mile with all of your needs. It’s a whole new experience on fishing. I hope this 73sv garmin echomap analysis has helped make your potential buying decision. Have any questions or feedback? Fancy letting us know!
