Yes, the software is current, and while i know the transducers are made by Airmar, these are sold and serviced by Simrad.

I get very little detail and it almost seems that the sidescan feature doesn't work. For example, I will go over an intense boulder filed and get just a couple of boulders. I will go over a wreck and get the image only hen I ma right over the wreck and if I pass next to it, I don't see it. The representation of the wreck looks the same in downscan as sidescan. I have attached a photo. Doesn't matter if it's in 455 or 800Khz.
