I did a bunch of research on this myself before buying. I bought the 740s a few weeks ago and shipped it to the builder building my boat, still waiting for the boat to get finished.
Go to a local West Marine or store of the sort and play with it for a bit. It was easier than I ever expected! Thats going to be your best bet. Everyone has different preferences...

I found it online for under $1400 without any mail in rebates and West Marine Price matched it for me!

The 740s is a great unit for the money and really like the unit. Right now I saw the 740s best price on sale at West Marine for $1,599 plus an additional $300 off in a gift card which will bring the price down to $1,299. You will also get $10 back for every $250 spent with their point system coupon ($60 worth) back making this unit the best price. Go play with the unit and you will see how easy it is to use.
