The down scan imaging is awesome, compared to my two older fish finders. I find it very easy to interpret. Mounting to the transom however, the bottom gets lost after about 13 mph. Through previous experience, I expected this to happen. I didn't use it as a replacement, but as a supplement to what I had. When I run on step, I only use the gps, and use my old depth finder mounted beside the elite 5 dsi for depth. When running slow or fishing, it works great.
I live and fish in Louisiana, which has as many bayous, rivers, and canals as it does roads. The map program on this unit omits a huge amount of navigable waterways, and the available mapping upgrades are just barely any better. Even though it shows me running across land half of the time, it does show a trail of where I've been, so if I get lost I can follow the trail back to the boat landing.other than wishing someone would create a topo map chip for this unit, I love it so far.

I was excited about the new combination GPS/FF/chartplotter till i realized that the chip included in the box with unit wouldn't fit the slot!! Used the megar installion guide to install the unit and was pleased with the display. Unit was supposed to track the depth at speeds up to 40mph? I lose signal at 15 to 20mph. Trolling under the bridge and unit never displayed the bridge (not very accurate).

      This was a gift from my girlfriend and she couldn't have picked a better one...the Lowrance, I mean! Get your instructions on-line and you will do fine. This is my first time using GPS, waypoints and it's easy to read, easy to use and very accurate. Get the chip, I got navionics, and you will be ready to navigate, mark, and fish.
      Screen brightness is great, can read from the back of the boat. Highly recommend.

                A:

                This will depend on the area that you are in for visibility. It doesn't pick up specifically fish themselves. The DownScan Imaging™ displays photo-like views under the boat, making it easier than ever to choose the best place to drop a line.

              Not on just this unit but on any down imagage unit. If the transducer is looking down on items. How does the screen show things such as trees standing up? For example shouldn't it be showing the tops of the trees?

                mine came with a Navionic Micro SD chip, you can insert it in the slot behind the rubber cap that has Elite 5DSI logo.
                You may need to pull the micro SD from the SD card case (I got the tip from another fellow boater, Thanks so much!)
