Default Show your Sonar Images here!

I took a picture of an image on my HDS-8 sonar the other day which still amazes me. I was boatless for about 15 years so am easily amused at the high tech stuff available now. And saying that, I hope to see what other units such as Furuno, Garmin, etc. show with users like myself and others that haven't quite mastered chartplotter/sonar use beyond selecting "Auto" for average returns.

Here's what I captured a couple of days ago. One fisher"person" was reeling up 2 fish on the left and the line on the right was getting bit at photo time:

pastaman1234, is Barometric Pressure just an overlay option or do you have some sort of sensor? Here's sonar side by side with structure scan:

Its a sensor that gets plugged into the unit. Runs on a large watch battery.
