Default Garmin 4 inch itis

So last year I jumped the gun and bought a 7608xsv. Now I really think I should have gone with the 12. Does Garmin have a trade up option? What's the best way to upgrade without taking a beating on the first purchase? Obviously I want to keep with the xsv series as everything would be compatible.

Don't want to sell it until I find a 12.( if it will fit) The only reason I am asking is because supposedly simrad does some sort of upgrade plan and I was hoping Garmin did as well

Nope, they do not offer any trade up program that I'm aware of.

You can add a cheap large monitor using a DVI to HDMI cable. I just added a 16 inch TV to my dual 7410XSV's so I have a large "heads up" display when I am driving standing up (bad back....).


Cheap as chips and seems to work pretty well.

If your unit has wifi capability then how about an ipad instead - plus you'll have multiple uses for it.

Nicely done!

but not an option for the OP - the DVI port is only on 7610 and larger -

not the 7608 or 7607
