Striker series is no map, it's merely a plotter to mark your location coordinates and create waypoints (although the quickdraw feature allows you to create your own very detailed maps using the sounders sonar. Useful in areas you regularly fish but is limited in size of area you can map out and save to the unit). Echomap series comes with fairly basic but serviceable inbuilt maps, capability to add a more detailed map card including the top notch ones with 3d capability and the quickdraw feature should you want more detail. Sonar wise, there's no difference between a Striker 7sv and an Echomap plus 7sv, same screen (no touchscreen on the striker though), transducer and all. The newer echomap UHD models are different from the Striker series though and not all models can use their panoptix live sonar.

So echomap has built it map and striker we draw our own map. Got it!
Thanks cobby.
That's the only main difference anyway. There's a few other very minor differences that have no large bearing on usage though
