I should add that I changed settings and took it off ics fishing and put it into shallow water. Don't know if this makes a big difference or not considering I still had it in manual mode.
I think it froze up three different times on Bago, but was stable on Poygan.
I then did the software/firmware update on Sunday, so I hope that takes care of the issues I had.
Overall it seems like it will be a decent unit. It's just gonna take awhile to dial in.
Hopefully the lag in flasher mode will be lessened with the update too. (probably just something to get used to coming from a Vexilar)
Should be an even better piece of equipment on the boat.
The transducer cable seems quite chintzy compared to the Vex cable as well.
Tipupin, I think you should use the cord which came with to support the transducer, otherwise I bet that cable goes to kakka in no time.
