Feature Rich, Buy it You'll Like It!

Date:January 16, 2013
A lot of useful features packed into a sizable frame for a total of 18lbs!
SONAR - .5" separation, colors that identify density of bottom, Chart feature is outstanding, Digital Sonar is far improved from the Showdown 5.6 Dual Beam I started with. Flasher Sonar- amazing color clarity and adjustable settings. You can easily switch between sonar view types
CAMERA - great feature to show depth of camera from bottom-appears on top right of Hud along w/option to turn on Temp to discern column temp!
Clip for back of camera to hook into cable and focus vertically (top to bottom) with camera(instead of std horizontal view)!
DISPLAY - Despite slightly murky water - there was very crisp image and color displayed and having adj. brightness helped throughout the day w/sun and cloud intermixed in the sky.
Currently needs a fix to offset the HUD info to left of screen, right now range, zoom, flasher are smack-dab in the center of the display. This explains the reason for a 4 of 5 rating. Very frustrating to have to offset camera in order to plainly view the jig as fish are racing in.
OPTIONAL PANNER included- Thx Cabela's for tossing it in! It was not as powerful as I hoped for when in single digit temps - unit lags with 2 C-cell batteries.
FYI - Highly recommend working with the simulator interface BEFORE hitting the water - you will be best served by becoming accustomed to navigating thru the view options + the camera options.
WISH LIST - Would hope the manuf. adds touch display in the future and in the near-term simplify the interface. Menus w/many options requires you arrow up or down across mult. columns. Needs an actual select/enter key. Need to work on carry handle/add 2nd strap to help balance weight when carrying over the shoulder - it's lopsided traveling with it. Add a little more material on front flap - velcro barely meets & requires force to stretch it. Enlarge the detachable camera pouch to have a little more give. Work on gasket in Panner unit - needs a groove to rest in so sides no longer have tendency to flex inward toward batteries.

Awesome

Date:December 20, 2012
Fantastic graph, little pricy but once you use it you'll quickly realize why you forked out the cash, I owned vexilar, humminbird and now this came along and blew the rest out of the water, great interface and packed full of features! Love it.
