Totally agree - my current Garmin colour screens are much easier to read than the old grayscale ones

Garmin 178C

I have a Garmin 178C which is a combined GPS and Sounder, I am not really sure how to get the best from it seeing the images on the previous page can I expect to see that sort of detail on mine?

It has a dual freq transponder that I leave set to the dual setting.

The manual is very limited in the information it provides and I can't say I have ever seen one of those Arches that represent a fish on mine despite haging around over some well know Mackrel grounds.

Yes and depending on the number of pixels perhaps even greater clarity.

why not have a play with it, but I think you will find 200 hz better than 50 hz for around the UK.

Have the Fish ID symbols been turned on? On a lowrance for example you can choose arches or fish or nothing, our Garmin regularly picked up fish in Brittany last week, and thats with the transducer glued inside the hull.

Pete I turned the fish ID symbols off as I was getting lots of reports of fish that I think were just spurious.
