7x is fishfinder only, no GPS. I believe they are out, yes.

"Bigger" than what, exactly? The Elite-7x HDI is precisely the same as the Elite-7 HDI, save for the fact that there is no GPS or chartplotter functionality.

Besides, I thought you wanted engine data on the MFD, and the capability of adding StructureScan? The Elite-7 (regardless of which flavor) will do neither of these things.

If me I would not go with the 7x but rather I would go with the 7, not because GPS but for the SD slot for the future updates. Otherwise, I would wait till make sure all bugs been fixed or no bugs indicated.

looking at one site I noticed that the 7 had a 9.5 inch screen and the 7x had a 7 inch- must have been a mistake I looked at the side scan but not sure it will work on my trans while staying out of the way of the motor and still getting a good view and really not sure it worth the extra $500
