Default New Features for Humminbird

There are four new software features in the Side Imaging Units for 2011. They are:

* Contour / Terrain Mode
* SI Navigation
* Down Imaging Zoom
* Side Imaging Range Lines

These features are in the 2011 798ci SI HD, 898cSI, 998c SI and 1198c SI models. Software upgrades for previous side imaging units (1197,997,987 and 79 The 797 and 981 will not get these software upgrades due to limitations in the units.

Contour Modes:
With Contour Mode OFF the water column is shown as it has been since we first came out with SI. Showing the water column can be valuable as it shows suspended fish and great shots of structure near or under the boat; however, the display of the water column can be confusing to some





SI Range Lines:
The SI Range Lines can be turned OFF or ON from a setting under the SONAR tab. The Range Lines give the user a quick reference of how far objects are away from the boat.

Side Imaging Navigation:
When you are Navigating (GOTO) to a waypoint NOTE the boat icon on top of the side imaging screen will point to the direction of the waypoint. This icon will move around to provide the direction to the waypoint.

Down Imaging Zoom:
New Software Feature. Ability to Zoom in on DI
