This unit is great for GPS and seeing structure with down imaging but it’s useless when it comes to finding fish. Fish arches look like pins on the huge screen. Also, I was getting a lot of noise, possibly interference from the engine. Tech support wasn’t very helpful, I had to return it.

Works great very user-friendly. Took me longer to install then I thought

Purchased this unit new 8-10 years ago. I’ve had it on 4 different saltwater boats. Works great. Equal to other new combo unit, its by other manufacturers. If it ever quits, I’ll buy Humminbird again.
