Garmin 7612xsv vs 7612 + GSD24
 
Using a legacy 50/200 dual band B260. Is there any difference in performance, reliability, or overall utility in coupling a 7612 with GSD24 module instead of a 7612xsv with no module?

The xsv is the 7612 with built in GSD25 in it.
I would definetly go for the 7612xsv

Do you already have the GSD24?

No.

I'm still trying to confirm that my legacy Raymarine/Airmar B260 is compatible with the new Garmin MFDs using the Garmin junction box.

If you were to go with the GSD 26 I would say yes, otherwise the GSD25 is a solid performer.
What depths and how do you fish, as this is a huge determining factor.

Typically wrecks up to 300' deep, drifting over. Of course I like to know depth over 2000' but don't care too much about the bottom at that point.

Aren't the GSD25 and 26 CHIRP, or are they also compatible with the dual-band transducer?

Yes, they are CHIRP but you can connect the dual frequency transducer with 8pins.

Xsv shares processor amongst all peripherals running . Blackbox gsd has its own processor . No problem but just like a computer more processing power is beneficial. Another benefit of using separate black box is if have multiple screens and the main screen goes down the others still have sonar
