Wow, who could have predicted that? I hope it performs well, I like competition in the market to keep the innovations coming. I think Garmin's success with Side Vu has put a lot of pressure on Navico.

I would not be surprised if we see a HDS Touch Gen3 which is CHIRPing also for StructureScan presented before the end of the year.

I wouldn't be surprised if I replaced an HDS9 with a new version before the end of the year

Looks like I have to upgrade my E127 for the A128 and then buy this one. Jeez, raymarine needs to let me catch up with all of their latest products before introducing more..

Transducer is a but funky, and you are required to have the CP100 for down vision.

Have they made the announcement of intergrating a 10Hz internal GPS in the rest of their MFD's (other than the 9 and 12 a-series)? They are definitely waaay behind the others on that aspect

I suspect the system design is done by the Navico lawyers

And Garmin's design? Seems like they didn't use Navico Lawyers on that one

The feeling that I got from talking to a booth guy at the Raymarine booth was that they feel they are a little better than Navico and not up to Garmin performance. Which I interpreted to mean they are probably pretty close to Lowrance side scan performance. I expect it will be a nice addition but requires 2 big transom mount transducers. I didn't know the down view ducer was as big as it is.

With ducers like that...so much for the Cat boats, guess they're out of the "picture" (so to speak) Haha!

I'm looking forward to using the side vision in the ocean where this unit is actually designed. I like that I can tweak the angle of the transducers to find the sweet spot. I'm a bit curious as to the orientation of an installed pair and the Downvision/Chirp transducer. Does it physically get tied together or just mount the two systems side-by-side. I have the through now, so, I guess I'll head to do some investigating.

But one thing is for sure, the technologies get more and more built upon.

I wonder what is next. Ha ha. I have an idea.

this has made the game interesting. its like they took the "what will keep us out of court" approach and not having a downscan built in is guess is a bit of a marketing ploy...."i may already have downscan with my a78 etc" hmmm.. black boxes .
my electronics display is already pretty crowded

The transducer angle is not adjustable. They are on a fixed mount bracket. There is no place to mount the down vision transducer. It mounts on its own elsewhere.
