It will depend on the software version installed but I would think you have it . If you mean Contour Mode
1. Contour mode will be on SI Enhance menu in the SI view and   "Contour Mode" will be an available selection. The default is off .

i`m unable to get out on the water at the moment but i also don`t think that i have the sonar contour mode either,& i was told that`s it not a good thing for the transducer to be used out of water?
thanks T.G

G’day T.G.,
Those ContourXD maps are only for the domestic units and are in the U.S.A. and not the rest of the earth.  I think that all you will have will be the UniMap in Australia.

No, running the transducer while out of the water will not harm it.

Yes you need a map card in to be able to make changes to that menu.
