I wonder if the 7610 are on the same timeframe. Getting the ducers in would be a plus so as there is less to install when the units get here.

The new carbon elite Yellowfin 24 with the merc 400 had 2 - 7610's xsv's on it. I was a little surprised to see that.

I am waiting too for (2) 7612's. They told me a California Port Strike and now I am reading a Chinese New Years. March 6th is a Friday. That's not good either. I hope my boat build is delayed too!

Yeah my boat has been purchased and I'm just waiting for my 7612 to take delivery. If it is going to be march then I might be riding in the bay aimlessly. I don't think I can wait much longer than another week without taking the boat out.

Take the boat naked and then return, Garmin will keep making excuses.
Get the Navionics app on the iPad.

Do these units need to come through the west coast port? They reached agreement but I'm sure things are delayed

Noticed yesterday that there were 6 cargo ships anchored just off the Sunshine Skyway bridge on the bay side. Never seen that before and I wonder if these small ports like Tampa are overloaded now because of the west coast shutdown? Maybe one of those ships is stuffed with 7610's.
