Basically...

The 1242xsv is a single band traditional CHIRP unit...and only 1 transducer port. ( 12 pin) ..Traditional CHIRP or Side scan...but not both connected at the same time.

The 7612xsv is a single / dual band CHIRP unit....and has 2 transducer ports..( 8 and 12 pin) you can use a single band Traditional CHIRP ducer ( 8 pin port) and also a side scan ducer ( 12 pin port) ..at the same time.
Or... you can use a dual band Traditional CHIRP ducer into the 12 pin port...( no side scan when doing this)

Both the 7612xsv and the 1242xsv have preloaded US Coastal and Inland lakes and rivers charts.
The 1242xsv has the newer G3 charts, and is available in a keyed or touch version.

The 7412 has the same sonar capability as the 7612xsv but it does not have preloaded maps.


In addition ...

The 8612xsv replaced the 7612xsv.
The 8612xsv has 3 transducer ports...for built in support for Single/ Dual Band Traditional CHIRP, Sidescan,Ultra High Definition and LiveScope (LVS 12)

Perfect, Gil thank you! Iíve got the B274 LHW and GT51TH-P I got from you a while back and a lonely 7610xsv. Radar and an AIS are my next purchases but right behind that is another MFD.

with my setup it looks like I can use any of the three as the maps should be networked from the 7610xsv...is that correct?

Thanks again, my friend and take care of yourself.
