Good graph for the $.

Touchscreen, easy user interface, Fish Reveal capabilities.

Networking capabilities are limited to nmea2000 if you plan on networking the console and bow graph.

I have one each on my new Skeeter.
I came from Humminbird Helix units.
I like the touch screen and most features. You can really dial in how you want things displayed.
A big step backward in mapping. Just can't beat the Lakemaster mapping for most of our lakes that fluctuate in water level.
Rumor has it that Lowrance has an update coming soon to add the "adjust lake level" to the mapping for Navionics chips.
Navionics already does this on the mobile app.

Networking is to sharing way points over the NMEA connection.

I have been using the Fishing Depth setting on my HDS 12 gen3 to adjust for low water or weed line edge locations, it shows the depth as a color change on the Navionics chip chart but does not adjust the depth readings of the contours.
