Anyone go check it out? I did and left underwhelmed. Maybe to see it on a boat in familiar waters would have been different but...

So what underwhelmed you? What were you expecting and what did you actually see? I have to admit the videos first had me ready to buy one but then I saw some and I wasnít as impressed. Iím still on the fence of if I would change brands. Itís always better to hear opinions from someone who might be looking at it objectively instead of the die hard Garmin fans who may be biased just because of the brand.

I know for me I see the panoptics version and I donít know what I am looking at. Could it just be a learning curve that didnít impress you at first sight?

I guess it just seemed 'canned'. Fish in aquarium swimming by then try to relate that image to what was on the screen. You could 'see' images swimming but whether it was a carp or crappie, no way my untrained eye could tell. Like I said, on familiar water it may have been different. Just not enough for me to bust out the wallet. I did learn they pre sold all they had and won't be back in stock until September. BTW, I have a new Garmin graph on the bow and like it so far. No knock on Garmin products intended.
