  1. Hey John, I really enjoyed reading your review of this sonar for fishes. I didn’t know there are sonars for fishes. but it makes total sense to just take a look before you spend hours waiting and praying for fishes. 🙂 My only question is how does the sonar detect the difference between a fish and just dirt that got swirl up by the engine of my yard?

    1. With this new chirp DownVision it Has two channels one for targeting fish and one for structures even in low visibility the images are still clear it allows you to no where the fish or holding so you can set your baits near their location.For a fish finder in this price range you can’t go wrong. I give it a 9.7 out of 10.I hope this has helped with your question but please feel free to ask more questions.thanks john

  2. Hi John,

    I am buying a plot of land in The Philippines that is foreshore, and in the process of buying a boat as well, so this article caught me attention.

    It would be great to see some screen shots if you have them and also dhow big is the unit and what is the best way to attach it to the boat?

    Nice review however and I loved the ‘action’ photo of the boat at the top of the page!

    Good job

    Tim

    1. This unit comes with everything you need for mounting.It realy depends on what kind of boat or water craft you are installing it on. You want the unit on the consule so you can see it and its not in your way of operating your boat and of course where it looks nice.

      Thier will be guide lines of how to install both under and on the consule.If you will mouse over the image on my site it will take you to all the product details just scrool all the way to the bottom of page.I hope i have answer your question and feel free to leave more comments down below

       It is basically 14 inches by 14 inches and weights 4.5 pounds    Thanks John
