Might try and see if it works for ya, it has gotten mixed reviews. For some it has worked and others not so much. If it doesn't work you can still revert back to 1.64 ...

What are your issues with 1.84?

Your unit does not have Down Imaging. It has composite DI views created by blending the two SI pulses.
That is why the DI view is not as sharp as SI.
The next two generations of Helix SI units have true DI from a DI piezo in the SI transducer.

Wayne, you are right I forgot about that! DI is not even worth looking at. Just looks grainy. Knowing that not sure if I want to update the software.
