H60/70 GPS

Has any on used a Simrad HS60 or HS70 GPS?

If so do they really take out the swell and waves from the bottom soundings or am I wasting my $$

Cheers

Bottom lock. Takes out all wave action . I use crayfish high def on my jrc. Picks up small ledges and fish brilliant.

I use the bottom lock function but I was wanting to know if anyone has one or seen one in use.

Bottom lock flattens the picture your sounder is getting but it isnt a true bottom picture.

Sat compass will take all the pitch and roll out and give you a real view of the bottom.

Havent seen the Simrad but have on Furuno. Makes a big difference.

Tim, thanks for the chat and info.

Unfortunately I have just found out the NSS evo's cant interface with the HS60/70. Only the comercial sounders S2009 etc.

Let us know how your new install goes,

Cheers
