Probably a whole lot less than the new 360 degree sonar just announced by MinnKota

However I will give MinnKota (and Dr Sonar) props that this view is much more useful and easy to interpret in my mind than pure side-scan/down-scan..... will make chasing schooling fish a lot easier. I'm not crazy about that pole off the transom, but the shallow-water guys don't mind a PowerPole or two back there, so why not....

The only parts that I had to buy was the servo controller for around $40, the rest are bits and pieces I had lying around.
