Lol!!! Sounds odd don't it. It came with the package of two HDS 9 - gen2 graphs that Cabelas had bundle together and got for 1800.00 this past weekend.

You can go to YouTube and search for spotlight scan. Lots of issues getting it synced and calibrated up. I've got it and gave up on it.

It's supposed to show an arch in front of you. think of a v shape arch based on where the trolling motor is pointed. If any fish are in the arch it shows them and you can cast to them.

It's like side scan but in front of the boat.

Wow! That's a deal just for the two HDS9's!

Is that a sale? Or just a good find?

Why do think you could never get it dialed? What was Lowrance reply?

Spend some time with it and see what you think. I'll admit all this technology has passed me by and I don't have the patience to keep at it to get it set up right. I wish I got to go fish more often than I do now so I could devote more time to the video game side of it.
