Default Garmin 7600 delivery update

I am getting ready to place an order for a 7610 system with radar, autopilot, fish finder etc. Appreciate any feed back on what someone may know about delivery dates. The website still say first quarter.

Thanks

Who is putting that info out? I wouldn't be surprised on that date if you just put an order in or are waiting for them to be available "in stock". I would also believe that if you're ordering a 16" unit as they were pretty late being announced officially.

Did you order Garmins for your new Yellowfin? If so what size?

In the near future...I see...Hmmm..looks like packages and trucks ?
Still a bit hazy..but I do see some sort of reduced activity... a bit of a hold up?
Mid march?
Of course it could just be faulty crystal ball reception....this is one of the older models.

I can tell you all this. When they are shipped from Garmin you will get yours as soon as your number comes up in the que. Those that placed orders back in October will get theres first. Every dealers deals with this with the release of new products from all manufactures. As the initial shipping date nears more orders are placed, then as it gets pushed mpre orders are placed. Untill finally the announcement that units are shipping and a huge mad rush of orders from people wanting units asap.
If you want one of the units in the initial shipments I would suggest to order as soon as possible.
Any wait will be well worth it when your out on your boat with your family and friends enjoying your new gear.
We do have additional orders units on order thst are not spoken for.

From wild speculation to to the darkest doom and gloom, it's so funny to see folks all bent out of shape. These things will be worth the wait! Those who chose to wait on ordering will soon suffer from excruciating envy once the arrivals start being reported. I've used my time wisely and refirbed my entire helm and wiring in preparation. I'll only need an hour to add my new unit and ducer to my lineup.

Sounds like you should upgrade your unit to a CHIRP model...
