Default Garmin 7612xsv

I was lucky enough to spend a few hours in the garmin booth at the bassmaster classic. I have to say, I was very impressed. Looks like I may be switching out my 2 humminbird 1198's for 2 7612's. I was worried about losing the great mapping from lakemaster but garmin has all of my local lakes covered in max def lakes with even more features than lakemaster. Now if transducer shield and saver will hurry up with a mount for the new pucs, id be all set.

One thing I forgot to ask is about screen scroll speed. On my humminbird units I can control scroll speed. This is helpful as matching boat speed gives the best images. I set my console unit to 4...my bow unit to 1 when using SI and 10 when verticle fishing. Does garmin allow me to change scroll speed?

According to the manual you can choose from Ultrascroll, Auto, and Fast. It doesn't list any other settings there but there might be others, I just haven't seen one in person yet. The manual say that when you choose Auto the unit will match scroll speed to boat speed to get the correct returns.
