Great pics. Do you have any details on the others? Where's the bridge? What are the things in the second pic? Did you take these screen shots?

I can't see the pictures.

I looked at them manually. Man... does this work in saltwater? I wonder if Raymarine is gonna come out with something like this. Makes me regret dropping 2k on equipment.

Does it work in saltwater not just dept but in 3 foot seas? There are some threads that suggest that it does not work in anything but flat water.

ACTUALLY, the downscan like the photos i posted are not affected in 2-4 foot waves, I was in 2 foot waves that day , waves were bouncing off the dam and then coming back to the boat. You can see no effects on the picture. ROcking of your boat does not affect the downscan view as much as standard SideScan.

The effects on the downscan is basically the same result with wave action watching your traditional sonar.

This is fascinating. The one showing the fish schools is incredible- I can see their fricking tails!

Is this protected technology? Normally Furuno and RM are right at the top of the technology game-I wonder why they have nothing like this...

I ordered and received the LSS-1 from BOE for my HDS 10 and future HDS 8 or 10. I can't wait to get the LSS-1 installed and on the water. All these screen shots have me drooling. I can't wait to check out my old fishing holes and find new ones.

Great shots. I have had mine out once and I am going out this morning. Its working great, the bait schools on downscan are much more defined. Unfortunatly there was nothing interesting on the bottom where we were at and we never saw large fish on the FF. Hopefully we get some better shots this morning.

Why is the 3rd picture of a bridge, ABOVE water. I'd guess that is the San Diego bay bridge. OR, are you telling me they built a 100 million dollar bridge, 20' under water?

No, it's not protected technology. And RM, Furuno and Garmin are all ussually LAST when it comes to releasing new technology. BUT, they ussually make it actually work after Lowrance and Humingbird screws it up. I think Lowrance has been first on almost every front of marine electronics technology. First color, first recorder, .... the problem is, they never make it worth buying. One only hopes they change that long history.

That was a simple question. 3rd picture: Why is there a BRIDGE in it, 20' underwater?? That looks to me more like a structure RADAR shot, above water than below water. And it looks like the San Diego bay bridge.
