All they will tell me is we have something new coming from Humminbird. But they won't say what. But they are going to have a Live Feed so those that cannot make it to the show can see it unvieled. I'll post the link once they get that set-up today.

I've been learning all I can about the new 360 Degree Sonar and it's really cool. Seen fish swim thru the transducer coverage and got to talk to KVD and he got to see it last week in action on Cross Lake.

One of the cool things is it is Ethernet Compatible so it does not require new product to use works with current 798ci HD, 898c, 998c, and 1198c at this time. With Ethernet the 360 Imaging will be able to be shared over the Ethernet Network to all SI Compatible Units on the Network so you can have unlimited number of SI units hooked to Hubs and share the data.

You can scan 360 Degrees or forward only or left only, or what ever you want.

It does require the transducer to clear under the boat and outboard so it does not block any of the imaging. It's like underwater imaging radar and it has patent pendings.

Talking to several Elite Anglers here of both brands and they see immediate imapact to fishing and their success.

If your fishing a road bed, grass line, brush piles you can see exactly where you need to cast...Looking out to 150' in all directions so its the first time you can get updating imaging with out having to have any movement. Sitting and fishing a brush pile has total changed.

Kevin Van Dam says "It the most amazing technology that he has ever seen since his fishing career started, that will have immediate and drastic impacts"

There is protection capabilities that warn you the transducer is retracted.









Sure I'll learn more about this exciting technology tomorrow...it's really cool to see and learn about ways this technology will impact fishing.

I'm on a pretty busy schedule so if you have questions I'll be on the Forum trying to get as many as I can fit in the busy schedule I'm on at this Classic.
