I sell them with some of our new boats. I have used them and what they can do is really great. I have used them in saltwater as well and for structure out 75 ft which is about as deep as I have tried them. they work great. The ability to see a rock in 60 ft of water and tell it is really a reef ball is great. The learning curve is not too bad. But the SI is best used under 10 MPH IMO and I don't care who's sysytem you use as I have seen several and they may read and display at 30 but you miss a lot at that speed too.

thanks for the input,

I found one for a good price considering it's a 10" screen.

I assume any nkea2k sensor works with it.

I would change out the ducer to the old HD version instead of the one it comes with.
