The 741xs is capable of single band CHIRP or traditional sonar use.
CHIRP is a higher quality sonar and if you do a good deal of fishing it may be worth the extra $.
The 741xs also has sonar recording and Wi-Fi capability.

If you are going to be just doing a bit of general recreational fishing the 740s will be just fine...and the savings can be put to good use elsewhere on your boat.

Another option that many have gone to is getting the 547xs CHIRP for sonar..and the 740s for Chart..you will have spent less $ than for just a single 741xs but now you have two stand alone systems.
