As Paul, I am also waiting to see results deeper than at least 45m, otherwise my Humminbird 1197 does the job fine.
I might consider anyways if:
- The HDS 10 are considerable stronger in light than the HB. Compared to my garmin 4012, it looks dimmed. I dont get it how HB can be so much behind on this issue. The HB on a sunny day actually sucks!
- The controls, menus etc. are really oldfasioned on the HB, have had Lowrance before and cant imagine the new HDS being any worse than that.
- The GPS/plotter on the HB, dont even get close to my Garmin or old Lowrance, though its just a backup.
So someone out there, please buy one and give us some results
