Maybe Gil can chime in if I am wrong here. The Garmin GT51 is a 3 element TD. ( A down element and 2 side elements) There was some sort of patent infringement battle between Garmin and Lowrance/Simrad and Garmin subsequently pulled the GT51's off the market. They replaced them with the CV51 which only has 2 side elements which overlap the down scan for a synthesized down view. Hope I got this right.
