i have a CV23M-TM that I just bought but is not compatible with my 1040xs. Probably not compatible with the 741xs either unless you had a black box.

It should be compatible. I just bought the 741XS and wanted the GT23 but the CV23M replaced it. Chris at BOE Marine sold the package to me. I installed and connected it but the 741XS did not recognize the CV23M so i called Chris and he said I needed to update the Garmin. BOE is a sponser on THT so you can also reach out to them. To do that I need to download the update (1.8GB) on a microSD and install it in the Garmin. Iím doing that process now and will report back hopefully by this weekend.

i have the 1040xs so not sure what differenceís there may be. I did update to the latest (6.60) and still did not recognize it. Garmin support said the CV23 was not compatible and I would need to buy the GT23. Now if itís compatible with the 741xs Iíll ship for $150. It was out of the box for an hour, never put in water. Iíll have all brand new mounting hardware as soon as the GT23 gets here (Wednesday)

Just got off the phone with Garmin and confirmed that the CV23M is NOT compatible with my 741XS. I have to see if BOE will take it back but they donít have any GT23M available.

I had trouble locating a GT23 so I went with the GT21M. Saved a few bucks, not sure how much performance I lost tho.

Looks like the only difference is that the GT21M only has CHIRP on the ClearVu and not the Traditional Scan vs the GT23M has CHIRP on both ClearVu and Traditional. At this point, I'll try and locate at GT23M and if not, will just get the GT21M like you Kgeb. I'm swapping out the 545s GPSmap so the 741XS in itself is going to be a big improvement with either transducer. GT23M not available until 6/11/2018
