Default 741xs and Combination Screens

So just picked up new 741xs during West Marine's sale on the 4th...will not install until next week.

As others have mentioned the manual is rather useless for model specific questions.

My question is there a way to have a combination screen with GPS Navigation and Gauges? I have the NMEA2000 set up now on my 541s. Reading the manual looks like combination screens are limited to GPS and Sonar.

That would really be a disappointment in my opinion as this was one of the main reasons for purchasing this. I guess I could cycle through while underway but I figured with the added screen size it would be nice to have two views up at once including Sonar and my favorite gauges.

You can display the engine info on a banner on the side or along the bottom of the screen. It works well as you can change the vital engine data displayed. Info appears in numerical form though not as a gauge. The gauge image would be too small to be relevant in this format.
