Simrad GO7 XSE Review

Overall Rating
2.6/5

The differences between personal and marine electronics continue to fade as manufacturers take inspiration and technologies from the smart phones that are an increasingly significant part of our lifestyles. The electronics we want on our boats are becoming more connected to the technologies the cloud provides access to, and we see the benefits in not just increased performance and user-friendliness, but in the flood of data we have even out on the water. Nothing exemplifies this more than the Simrad GO7 XSE

Garmin echoMAP CHIRP 73sv Review

Overall Rating
4.6/5

Garmin echoMAP CHIRP 73sv has a widescreen display resolution of 800 by 480 pixels from a 7-inch screen which gives it more than enough real estate for crystal-clear viewing. Perhaps the main selling point of the echoMAP CHIRP 73sv is its built-in CHIRP (Compressed High-Intensity Radiated Pulse) sonar capabilities. CHIRP does not just send one frequency at a time. Instead, it sends a continuous sweep of frequencies on a low-to-high range. This puts more pulse onto the target than traditional sonar, and consequently provides more detailed returns.

The fish finder features an impressive 10.1 inch wide screen having a 16:9 ratio that presents images in 1024 x 600 high-definition adjustable color resolution. The larger screen provides more room for split-screen views, which makes navigating and tracking fish that much simpler.
