Garmin won for down scan, but lost for side scan.

From what I read Lowrance is paying Humminbird a small percentage after there Lawsuit a few years back... Not sure if that's true, Anyone know for sure.

Two completely different suits. Garmin won in the suit Navico (Lowrance) brought, but lost in a suit that Johnson Outdoors (Humminbird) brought.

After buying the garmins and running them in place of the birds I can tell you that Humminbird is nowhere near "the gold standard" in graphs...... Sometimes you play second fiddle and Humminbird is in that spot now.

HB has been 2nd fiddle to Lowrance for years now. I haven't tried the Garmin units though. They get great reviews, so I'd like to check them out. I might when my bow unit finally bites the dust.

Garmin pulled a nice knockoff with the money they saved by not doing their own R&D. Bird owns the patents and has to defend them. Simple case of technology rip-off.

Yep. Patents are there for a reason. Initially they were to encourage R&D by ensuring a company could recoup that plus sell and profit. This isn't China where they clone everything.
