What customers say about "Key Specs"
Garmin Striker 7SV (010-01809-00) with transducer
  • The sidevü on the units are awesome and photo like images of the bottom really blown me away.
  • I have used the Garmin 7 side view for a year now and it is still working just as good as tbe first time I used it.
  • Sideview and clearview are good, but the traditional sonar is amazing!
  • This unit has CHIRP down and sideview, and traditional sonar. And honestly. thats all you want to have displayed on the screen.
  • Plugged the unit in and the 7" screen with included side view is a fine quality product of exceptional value.
Humminbird Helix 7 (409850-1) SI GPS/Fishfinder with Side Imaging Sonar
  • Very pleased with this unit though! I would definitely recommend this as an SI/DI unit if you're on a budget.
  • The Unit is great and functions like I expected it to.
  • The Downscan can display holes, weeds, drop offs, and bars with various sized symbols of fish showing where they are hanging out and at what depth.
  • Works great down imaging is amazing.!
  • The side imaging is essentially useless as it is a blurry mess (just like my 797).

What customers say about "Interface"
Garmin Striker 7SV (010-01809-00) with transducer
  • I've bought 2 Garmin Striker 7sv units and I've connected my bow and transom units to share waypoints which works 100%.
  • I like this finder very well I like all the options and settings. Very clear screen even in the sun.
  • Great screen and I can see where the fish actually are.
  • Great clear display, good value for money.
  • This is an awesome product for the money. Picture is very clear. Thanks again!
  • No maps (not even a base map!), and no way to add any.
Humminbird Helix 7 (409850-1) SI GPS/Fishfinder with Side Imaging Sonar
  • This is great unit with one problem. They don't tell you it will not take a standard lake map chip.
  • The viewability of the screen is all its cracked up to be.
  • Bright non-glare display even on sunny day. Big improvement over all my previous units.
  • The size of the screen is good for what I wanted it for.
  • The built in maps and GPS are good enough for my trips in the Florida Keys

What customers say about "Features"
Garmin Striker 7SV (010-01809-00) with transducer
  • Unit is flawless, interface well thought out. Kit is packed with essentials including in line fuse and mounting hardware for both transom and trolling motor or other.
  • The GPS is extremely accurate and adds repeatability to drifts and trolling runs.
  • This fish finder is like I thought; it is very good and it is easy to install and use.
  • This is great if the unit is dash mounted and you rarely need to change the viewing position
Humminbird Helix 7 (409850-1) SI GPS/Fishfinder with Side Imaging Sonar
  • Very affordable unit that works extremely well. Mounted it on the bow of the boat and works perfectly when I'm up at trolling motor.
  • Mounting is a snap. i mounted mine in such a way that i can move it to the rear of the boat while trolling.
  • Nice unit. Still messing with the settings. Gps is great.
  • Really like the fact that it comes with a screen cover for traveling with boat.
  • Excellent product, excellent price. Easy to install. I also bought a 5" for the bow.
  • Nice unit but extremely disappointed that it is not I- pilot link compatible like I was told.
