Default Simrad BSM2 Version 1.4 needed?

I have been working with Simrad trying diagnose why I am not getting the CHIRP quality in deep (1300') water. I have tried various things and have a couple more but one thing they recently mentioned was going from the current 1.5 version on the BSM2 to the 1.4. I recall in a fairly recent thread someone asking a similar question based on Simrad's suggestion but cant seem to locate it via search.

Has anyone tried this? Did it make any difference? Did anyone have trouble when they updated to version 1.5?

Unfortunately, I did all of my updates and such at the same time i did the install so I am somewhat flying blind with no benchmark to start from.

If we are thinking of the same earlier thread, it related to going back to the older version of NSS software. Not BSM-2. But maybe there was another thread out there.

OK. Can you tell me why. I agree it doesn't make sense but I am also trying to do some trouble shooting. can you tell me what the difference was?

it was a horrible piece of software that rendered the BSM-2 unusable... stick to the 1.5, its the best version available
