Hmmm... so a 360 view of what's around your boat - in 3D. Interesting.

Pretty soon these things will catch the fish for you.

You could attach the transducer to your powerpole and see what's underground.

That is amazing technology. you could actually see your bait being retrieved like a video game. EA sports will partner with Hummingbird to make the Xbox version. LOL

Looks like an underwater version of a radar display. It is the next logical step to di and si.

What I find interesting, that piques my curiosity is that the shadow of the standing timber in the lower left quadrant is twofold. The weaker, like all other sonar images is cast away from the center of the display, while a bolder shadow is cast toward the top of the display, as though the signal was generated from the bottom of the image rather than the center.

Looking at the image again, there is a third "shadow" halfway between the other two.

You buy this at MSRP $1,999.00 and download the update for the older units and your set. Not sure where these guys are going to put this. That has a power poles on the back LOL

Those shadows are probably caused by reverberations which could come from any direction.................Al

There's three branches, therefore three shadows, all with the same angle of incidence from the boat.

Not long, I would guess.

I'll wait for a trolling motor transducer version before I would ever consider it. I have one of my SI transducers on a breakaway mount that it gets tripped several times a day.

Can you please post pictures. I have the terrova trolling motor and since the transducer doesn't work wit di/si I do not have the graphs. If I could figure a nice way to make a mount like yours for up front it would end up costing me around $1500. :eyebrows:

Crap -- I was really hoping for above-water imaging. I think there's a huge market for this. Imagine how productive your fishing would be if the fisherman could also see ABOVE the water!

I got an email from Humminbird on this today. Like Wayne P, I will be more interested in this when/if they offer a TM transducer...or at least some sort of stand-alone transducer that gives some mounting options. I don't want to put this big pole contraption on my canoe... :lol:

I dont see why this wouldnt work mounted on trolling motor. As long as it is lower than the bottom of the hull, it should work... Their current mount pole thing looks like the perfect target for underwater wood and such. I bet they are going to make alot of $$ from people having to replace the ducers they have broken off!

They are making a bracket that will hold both a 360 and a Talon at the same time. Don't quote me but I don't know if the power pole and talon brackets are compatible?
