Garmin 7610xsv vs Garmin 8610xsv


 

What is the difference between the Garmin 8600 and the 7600?

 

There are some key differences, mostly in performance but also in features and connections.

Take a took at the detailed breakdown in the infographic below.

 

In short, the 8600s are faster, have a much crisper looking screen, come preloaded with the new BlueChart® g3 U.S. coastal and LakeVü g3 maps featuring Navionics® data and include additional sonar with Ultra High-Definition ClearVü | SideVü scanning sonar.

The Touchscreens are built around the new Full HD In-plane Switching (IPS)  technology that enables us to see the screen from virtually any angle and even with polarized sunglasses. Its very clear and very bright.

The other notable differences are the rear connections. The 8600 series have 2 HDMI connections, a USB port, a LVS Sonar connection and an audio out plug.

Note: XSV = Built in Sonar
