Garmin 740 Review

The Garmin 740 is a multifunction display featuring a high resolution 7-inch display with a touchscreen user interface. An internal high-sensitivity GPS sensor combined with preloaded Garmin BlueChart g2 U.S. Coastal cartography gives detailed position and navigation information.

The 740 package ships with the display unit, a protective front panel cover, mounting bracket, power/data cable, owner’s manual, quick reference guide, and installation instructions. The front panel footprint measures approximately 9-inches wide and 5.5-inches high. Overall depth is 3.2-inches.

garmin 740 touchscreen chartplotter unit

Garmin 740

The display unit back panel has four connectors, one each for a power/data cable, NMEA2000 port, radar sensor, and external GPS sensor.

The latter uses a metal twist-lock BNC connector while the other three use threaded connectors.

The thread-lock connectors are new and I like them for their solid lock and security when compared to the old style plastic twist-locks. The 740 chartplotter will interface with several Garmin radar units but is not capable of being networked to other MFDs. Officially designated the Garmin GPSMAP 740, this Garmin marine GPS chartplotter is capable of communicating with other devices using a NEMA2000 network. It will also interface with a marine VHF radio, autopilot, as well as other compliant sensors using the NEMA0183 protocol.

At the top and bottom of the display face you will find removable bezels that cover mounting holes in the case used for a flush mount. All you’ll need to complete the task of flush mounting the 740 in a helm area panel is cut the hole and fasten the unit in place with the supplied screws.

The display has a front panel footprint that measures approximately 9-inches wide and 5.5-inches high. Overall depth is 3.2-inches.

Screen Size and Viewability

The 740 screen has a landscape layout and measures 6-inches wide by 3.7-inches high which yields a 7-inch display screen size when measured on the diagonal. Pixel count is a very high 800 by 480.

garmin 740 chart view

One of the combination views available is two charts. On the left is the standard 2D view and in the middle the Perspective view. The data box on the right has a wealth of information.

I am rating the daytime viewability of the high resolution Garmin display screen as excellent. With its high resolution even fine details are sharp and clearly readable.

When viewed using polarized sunglasses I noticed slight darkening of the screen, however it always remained fully readable, even out at severe side angles. No screen fogging was apparent in the display at anytime during our review.

The Garmin 740 has two color palettes, day and night, either can be selected manually or the selection can be set to automatic. The night palette uses darker coloration to enhance night viewing. This unit also has an automatic backlight control system that uses a sensor to determine the appropriate backlight level. I tried it and found it worked very well at matching the surrounding light levels. I am rating the 740 excellent for night viewability.

Operation

This Garmin standalone chartplotter brings down the easy-to-use touchscreen interface first launched on the big expensive Garmin MFDs to a much more affordable machine.

Like other Garmin plotters, things get started on the 740 with a Home page display menu. From here you may select Charts, Radar, Weather, Configure, Where To, Information, Combinations, or Information pages. There is also touch field to create a waypoint.

I tested this Garmin chartplotter with software version 2.10 installed. Garmin regularly adds features and fixes to chartplotter software. As a unit owner you should occasionally check the website for updates and install them. You will need a blank SD memory card and a card reader for your computer.

Waypoints

To create a waypoint at the vessel present position you’d hit the Mark touch field located both on the top line of the chart page and on the home page menu. Once you press it the 740 builds the waypoint and switches you to a waypoint page where you can see the name, position, depth, and bearing and distance information. From this screen you can edit the data, move the waypoint, or delete it completely.

There are actually two pages to this screen and if you use the right arrow field at the bottom of the page you will see a mini chart view pop up onscreen showing the location of the waypoint. You can create a waypoint anywhere on the chart page by touching the screen where you want the point and then choosing the create waypoint field.

You navigate to a waypoint by selecting it from the chart or the waypoint list. You would follow through with a couple more menu selections to execute navigation to the point. After you execute you will see a course line and numeric data displayed onscreen to provide guidance to the waypoint.

The Garmin 740 can store up to 3000 waypoints and 100 routes. Waypoints are identified with a user-defined name up to 10 characters in length and one of 70 symbols. You can also add a comment about each point.

Routes

Route building in the Garmin GPSMAP 740 is easy to accomplish. Touching your final destination on the chart page followed by a press of the Route To function will get things started. All you have to do now is touch the chart and click the Add Turn field as needed for each added waypoint along the way.

Odds and Ends

Using the man overboard function on the Garmin is a multi-step process. First off, you will need to press the Mark button. Then you will need to cursor to the MOB field and confirm your selection. Once done, the 740 creates a waypoint, switches to the chart view if you’re not already on it, and opens data boxes that provide enough navigation information to take you back to the MOB position. As I have said many times before in a variety of chartplotter reviews, a single action MOB function preferred over multi-step procedures like this one.

garmin 740

When you search for services or marina information the list generated shows results based on distance.

Screen redraws on the Garmin 740 are very fast and smooth. Noticeable map redraws can be seen when zooming out while a zoom in is fairly seamless under most circumstances.

Selecting the Where To page from the Home page menu provides the user with locations for services as well as access to tracks and lists of waypoints and routes. You will also find a Stop Navigation function field displayed here.

Once function that continues to be missing from this Garmin chartplotter’s bag of tricks is a Restart Navigation command. This particular function is found on many chartplotters and has proved to be a real benefit to fishermen and cruisers. If you are traveling to a waypoint and need to move off course for some reason having the Restart Navigation function makes heading back toward you selected waypoint from your new boat position really easy. I wish Garmin would consider adding this feature.

Tides, current, celestial, user, and other vessel data can all be found via the Information page. Certain other data can be accesses by placing the cursor over the object in question from the chart page.

The Garmin 740 is rated waterproof to IPX7 standards, which means it could be submerged to a depth of 1-meter for up to 30 minutes and survive undamaged. The unit carries a 1-year warranty.

Buy this Garmin chartplotter here.

Final Thoughts

The Garmin 740 chartplotter shows lots of chart details with its super sharp screen. I found it easy to use too. A powerful processor gives this Garmin chartplotter a chart view that moves smoothly as the boat travels or you range the chart.

Garmin 740s Review

The Garmin 740s is a standalone MFD that features a 7-inch display with touchscreen interface, an internal high-sensitivity GPS receiver, and a 1000-watt digital sounder into a single unit that comes preloaded with Garmin BlueChart g2 U.S. Coastal cartography that includes Bahamas coverage.

The back panel has four connectors, one for an optional external GPS sensor, a second for the power/data cable, a radar network plug, and a NEMA 2000 port. The 740s will interface with a number of Garmin radar units but is not network capable.

It can communicate with certain other devices like AIS or a satellite weather receiver via NEMA 2000 and say a VHF radio using NEMA 0183. Interfacing the 740s with an N2K network would require additional hardware.

The 740s package ships with the display unit, a protective front panel cover, mounting bracket, power/NEMA 0183 cable, owner’s manual, quick reference guide, and installation instructions.

To use the built-in sonar you’d need to purchase an optional

transducer. The display has a front panel footprint that measures approximately 9-inches wide and 5.5-inches high. Overall depth is 3.2-inches.

For my review I mounted the unit using accompanying bracket. Removable bezels at the top and bottom of the display front yield access to flush mounting holes in the case. All you’ll need to complete a flush panel mount are screws.s

Garmin 740

Screen Size and Viewability

The 740s screen uses a landscape layout that measures 6-inches wide by 3.7-inches high yielding a 7-inch screen size when measured on the diagonal. Pixel count is a very high 800 by 480.

We rated day viewability on the high resolution Garmin display screen excellent while noting a bit of reflectivity. With its high resolution even fine details are sharp and clearly readable. When viewed using polarized sunglasses the screen darkened little and was readable even at extreme side angles. No screen fogging was apparent in the display at anytime during our review.

The 740s has an automatic backlight control system that uses a sensor on the front of the display to set screen brightness and color mode based on ambient light levels. The color mode options are a day or night color palette. The night palette uses darker coloration to enhance night viewing. In my testing the automatic system worked very well at matching the screen to the outside light. I rated the 740s excellent for night viewability.

Operation

This Garmin is unlike any other standalone chartplotter combo in their lineup. It finally brings together the easy-to-use touchscreen interface first launched on the expensive big screen MFDs down to a more affordable machine.

garmin 740s chart detail

The Garmin 740s chart page can be viewed in perspective 3D, fishing, or as a traditional 2D navigation chart as seen here. . Note the course indicator line set for three minutes.

There is only one button on the face of the Garmin 740s and its main function is to turn the unit on or off.

All other user input is accomplished by touching an onscreen field.

Buy this Garmin chartplotter combo here.

From the Home page you’d select from an option list of main pages.

The basic list includes the Chart, Combinations, Configure, Mark, Where To, Information, and Man Overboard.

If you hook up the transducer a Sounder page will show up too.

With certain optional accessories installed you’d also see a Radar and Weather page. Each main page has more menu items, again all based on the equipment installed, to select and execute related options. For example, pressing the Where To field brings you to its menu page where you’ll find options to view the waypoint list, route list, tracks, or offshore services. You can also search by name or stop navigation from this menu.

Overall I found the Garmin 740s very easy to operate and use. Rarely was it necessary to reference the owner’s manual for guidance.

Charts

The Garmin 740s chart page can be displayed as a traditional 2D vector chart, or in perspective 3D mode, or as a fishing chart—each has a specific purpose. I prefer the traditional chart view for navigation and the fishing chart when extra deep water contour lines are desired. Perspective 3D does have an interesting look but doesn’t display the level of detail found in the navigation chart view.

With a Garmin BlueChart g2 Visions card installed the unit will also display options for Mariner’s Eye 3D and Fish Eye 3D chart views.

Waypoints

To create a waypoint at present position you’d hit the Mark button. The unit then shows you the saved waypoint data and options to edit, delete, or select as MOB. If you do nothing on this menu page the unit will revert back to the chart page view in five seconds. To place w waypoint elsewhere you simply touch the screen where you want the point, the unit will zoom to the area, and popup an option list to navigate to, create a waypoint, measure distance, or show area information. A data box onscreen will show position data, bearing, and distance to the point.

You navigate to a waypoint by touch it on a chart page or by selecting it from the waypoint list. Next you’d follow through a couple menu selections and execute. If you’ve have navigation data boxes set to automatic this will bring them onscreen loaded with information. You’ll also see a course line based to follow displayed onscreen.

The Garmin 740s can store up to 3000 waypoints and 100 routes. Waypoints are identified with a user-defined name up to 10 characters in length and one of 70 symbols. You can also add a comment about each point.

Routes

We found the easiest way to build a route was go directly to the chart page, touch the final destination, build a waypoint there, and then select Route To. Once you do this you can simply add turns as needed by touching the screen and pressing Add Turn.

Buy this Garmin chartplotter combo here.

When you execute and follow a route extra information will display onscreen and show navigation data to the next waypoint and the final destination. This Garmin chartplotter can go navigate a route forward, backward, on an offset, or by skipping a particular waypoint. Up to 100 routes with as many as 250 waypoints can be stored.

garmin 740s tide data

Tide, current, and celestial data is found via the Information page. This is the graphic tide display.

Odds and Ends

The easiest way to execute the man overboard function on the Garmin 740s is press Home, then Man Overboard, then Yes to the question—Do you want to navigate to this MOB? When you do all this the unit executes the MOB as a waypoint and displays a plethora of navigational data back to the point. The Garmin MOB function would be better if it were activated with a single button push.

Screen redraws on the 740s are fast, smooth, and fairly seamless under most circumstances.

The 740s chart page can be orientated to North Up, Course Up, and Heading Up. At sea it responded well in all settings.

This Garmin chartplotter fishfinder has an easy to use distance and course measuring tool that can be found by simply placing the cursor and then hitting Select.

The Garmin 740s is rated waterproof to IPX7 standards, which means it could be submerged to a depth of 1-meter for up to 30 minutes and survive undamaged. The unit carries a 1-year warranty.

Fishfinder

This Garmin is capable of producing up to 1000 watts of output power from its integral sonar. For my testing, I used a 50/200 kHz transom mount transducer. This transducer limits the sounder output to 500 watts. To get the full 1000 watts of output power requires a transducer with a 1kW power rating. In the depths I tested the reduced power had little to no effect on the results.

After choosing Sonar from the Home page menu, you can select how you would like to display the sounder data. Options include full screen sonar, split frequency, or split zoom. You can also choose a number of sounder setup options like A-scope, scroll speed, whiteline, color scheme, and surface noise.

garmin 740s sounder

In this partial screen shot you can see the 740s clearly painted all three test targets. The plus/minus keys on the top line instantly change the depth range as desired.

During our testing the Garmin 740s sonar marked all three of our submerged test targets best after I spent some time fine tuning the gain individually for each frequencies.

Once you’re on a sonar display page you see a menu field onscreen. From here it is easy to change the gain, depth, frequency, and zoom options as needed. For the latter you can choose none, 2x, 4x, manual, or bottom lock. Manual zoom puts adjustments to the size of the zoom area and the coverage zone within easy reach.

While using the sonar the plus/minus buttons can be used to manually quick change the depth setting if desired or reselect automatic depth ranging.

In my opinion the 740s fishfinder has tons of features, was very intuitive and easy to operate, and worked well presenting bottom, fish and test targets during our review.

I rated the Garmin 740s sounder good for presentation and excellent for ease of use.

Buy this Garmin chartplotter combo here.

Final Thoughts

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.
