Not much detail untill zoomed in quite abit. Then you don't know where you are or what structure is near.

My opinion is to get a lowrance with a lakemaster chip. It's so much better it isn't funny. Thats what I ended up doing.

Benny- I have the legend C with lakemaster and U.S. recreational hot spots software for it. The only complaint I have about it is the screen size. It would be nice to have a larger one like the h2o. If you would like you are welcome to come over and check it out. Where in Coon Rapids do you live?

Down off Hanson and CR BLVD, about 1-1/2 mile South of HWY10.

I am also upgrading to the H2O and the new lakemaster chip if I like it. I might get the other chip with more lakes but we will see.

I liked my legend but not a big screen and I thought it was very slow to zoom in and stuff.

I have one but dropped er in the drink about 30 foot down a couple weeks ago. Still is a bit damp in there so I haven't fired up to see if it works yet.

I did drill a couple holes to get most water out and have her on the vent to dry, still a bit of condensation I can see so i will keep waiting and see if it works again!

I have found some good deals online for the h2O though, about $140.

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
