Default Garmin GPSMAP 7610xsv discontinued? (No, bad link)

hey folks,
was looking at picking up a 7610xsv, and while searching the web, noticed that both the 7607xsv and 7610xsv were on Garmin's discontinued list:

http://www.garmin.com.sg/products/di...ed/?cat=marine


I saw the 7610xsv on Garmin's web site under products currently being sold as well. the part numbers match the ones on the discontinued list.

I'm not interested in paying full price for a unit that is or will soon be discontinued. anyone have any insight into the true status of these units?

I just had one installed. Not discontinued and there is a rebate.

yes, I'm in the US. I viewed your link before posting. both Part Number 010-01306-13 and 010-01306-03 are in the discontinued list, same PN as what's shown in your link. that's why I'm confused.

I don't know where the dotcom.sg came from in your link? That link I posted above is the correct one.
I just had my dealer order the 7610 and it was just installed in my new boat

thanks halfwaythere

the link came from a google search. searching the Garmin US site doesn't show the 76xx line as discontinued.

I should have been more thorough. appreciate you clearing this up

I would not be too surprised to see that the 7600 series gets "refreshed" in the course of the next year as it has been on the market for about as long as Garmin seems to regard as a product life. I don't have any special information, just that is what they have done in the past. The availability of rebates is also a clue.

My wild guess is that they might introduce a new version that extends the new 8600 series down in size with that sort of glass bridge look, maybe at next spring's boat shows.

Here is Garmin's current US link.

And the upgraded 7610xsv 010-01306-13 is still in full production.

The first step in Garmin's process of totally removing a unit from the Garmin line up is to remove MRP restriction on that unit...then they sell them for a good bit of time that way.
For example: the 741xs ,840xs and 1040xs had MRP removed for almost 2 years before they were finally discontinued.

That's the non J1939 version and yes it has been discontinued. All of the current 7600 units feature the J1939 plug which allows interfacing with engines that are J1939 equipped

I can confirm that it is there, and it does work with a DDEC IV MTU/Detroit diesel.

Connection Considerations
J1939 Engine Network Connection Considerations
J1939 Engine Network Connection Considerations
NOTICE! You must use a Garmin® GPSMAP® J1939 accessory cable when connecting the chartplotter to the J1939 engine network to prevent corrosion due to moisture. Using a different cable voids your warranty.
NOTICE! If you have an existing engine network on your boat, it should already be connected to power. Do not add any additional power supply.
This chartplotter can connect to an engine network on your boat to read data from compatible devices such as certain engines. The engine network follows a standard and uses proprietary messages.

You should connect only one chartplotter to one engine network. Connecting more than one chartplotter to one engine network may result in unexpected behavior.

The port labeled ENGINE/J1939 is used to connect the device to the existing engine network. You must route the cable within 6 m (20 ft.) of the engine network backbone.

The Garmin GPSMAP J1939 accessory cable requires connection to a power source and proper termination. For more information on connecting to your engine network, see the manufacturer's engine documentation.
