Default FF Background Color?

For you folks with color fishfinders. What factors determines the color background ( blue/white) you use? Is it just personal preference?

Many of them let you chose the color. Personally, I like black, then white. It depends on th machine. On the Garmin 3010c's at work, I like black. I know Garmin offers a color choice, but I can't recall what they are.

I like dk blue in low light and white in bright light. Just personal preference - that's all.

On my Lowrance I like the bottom lock color. Night vision is great at night, as soon as one of my buddies gets on the boat he changes it to blue. So its really a personal prefference thing.

Depends on light conditions that day. Often a white background in bright sunny day is easier to view. Experiment in different light conditions with your unit and you'll see what works best for you.
