Default Does the NSS Sounder screen look similar to the HDS12?

Is there a big difference (other than aspect ratio) assuming color palates are the same, range, gain, etc. in the way the NSS displays sounder info VS HDS12?

The NSS sonar display pages are programable in relation to data boxes, what data is in the boxes, and number of rows.
Gain, contrast, range can be controlled either by touch or knob rotation.

Thanks - But what about the picture itself?
(Is the HDS12 as pretty a picture?)

The color palettes are different, but the screens themselves looks and feels (touch feeling) to be very similar for NSS and HDS Touch. I know NSS has a high grade industrial touch panel (more expensive than the panels used by the competitors), it seems as HDS Touch is using the same technology.

The sounder screens are the same except for palettes, some color variation and of course how the controls look like.

After to update to SW 2.5 for NSS, the zooming, zoom bars and how to move the zoom area are implemented the same both for NSS and HDS Touch.
