 Thanks for posting. I can't seem to get the same clarity from mine. Same tranny. What speed where you travelling at the time of this screenshot?

 From memory I was just chugging along trying to find the best bit of rock to fish near. 5 or 6 knots max I would say.

I've used the sidescan at 20 knots but rarely does it find anything as I think it tries to blend the picture against the interference.

As others have said, the flatter the chop the better the performance.

 Sidescan really ain't designed for speed imo.
