I understand all this but am still confused as to their algorithms to display on a 2D screen the 3D image/multiple depths that's gathered within the cone.
SO, are the depth levels displayed an average of the reflections measured within that cone?

Re: Bottom Finder Pics

Yes, exactly but the scroll slices the return signals drawing them as the compiled returns change in a single dimension. The color differences are so to speak the second dimension of view decerning from hard to soft and blended as single lines in the scroll.
Averaged is a good term to discribe the result of data received from a ping in the cone. Larger cone = more data to average

Re: Bottom Finder Pics

Dear Sage Spearfishing gods & electronics gurus,

If you were starting over from scratch on an electronics package, what would you choose & why?

I'm in the process of selling my Parker with a Garmin 7610xsv & GT51TH and need to update the 26 Newton which currently has a Garmin GPSmap 4210, GSD22 black box and P319 50/200 kHz 600 watt transducer.

New boat is a monohul with 10 degrees of deadrise and inboard diesel engine and that through hull P319 is pretty much in the best/only unobstructed spot down there.

I dive mainly and have gotten reasonable utility out of the side scan capabilities of the 7610, primarily when trolling around trying to define the spot. I want a machine that will give me all the tools necessary to find and target structure and fish at depth.

Thoughts?
