Default Garmin's echoMAP new quick release mounting...and improved screen cover

On all the new 2015 echoMAP units from Garmin the units cords plug directly into the mount, allowing you to quickly install and remove your device from power and the mount.

Gone are the days of unscrewing two or three connectors to remove the unit.
Now it is just press down a back tab..and the unit is out.

I just got thru trying it out with the 94sv & 74sv units....very secure fit and easy to remove.













WEATHER CAPS


















Also..these new units have an improved screen covers with 4 tabs to hold the cover in place ..the older ones had a habit of coming off due to wind etc.

I don't believe so. My 53dv and 43dv have the quick release and I love it. As a tester for them, this was one of the issues I and others brought up previously. Really makes it simple to install and remove. Two seconds at the most!!

It definitely looks like nice a nice upgrade, but I wish it was available for my unit. Oh well

Two seconds..your finger must have been frozen


Seriously..this new quick disconnect.. the end users will see that this makes a big difference in day to day use for those who need to remove the unit for theft prevention.

And the locking screen cover is simple..it works...and it was needed.
