perfect for smaller boatsI have this on my 17' center console which I use mainly for inshore fishing. It replaced two separate Garmin units - a fish finder and a GPS. I love this new device. The maps are very accurate and I used them in coastal Alabama and Florida. The down vu and standard sonar is clear. I went scalloping last week and could tell from the standard look the kind of sea grass under the boat which was wonderful.

Alot of features in such a small unitI bought this in March and it was a great unit. I got to all my spots with ease and it even gives you the tidal flow charts. Great for the lakes as well. I bought the lakeview chip to go with it as well.
Thank you for your inquiry. Currently, we are researching the product. Please feel free to check back for an update.

Garmin echoMAP™ CHIRP 44dv Sonar/GPS Chartplotter Combo has preloaded BlueChart® g2 maps cover the coastal US, with tidal stations, currents, depth contours and smooth transitions between zoom levels.
The difference between the 43dv and the 44dv is the 43dv has LakeVu HD maps and the 44dv has U.S. BlueChart® g2 maps.
