ALL SI Models -  New Side Imaging Screen View Option
« on: March 21, 2015, 10:10:07 PM »
Model: 
ALL SI Models
Suggested Upgrade: 
New Side Imaging Screen View Option
Explanation: 
I would like to offer a software upgrade for Humminbird SI units – add New Side Imaging Screen View Option, which I explained in this slide show video (sorry for not very good quality):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyHWgXOdwpw
As you could see it took the same 42 seconds and 6 screen shots to pass the same 200ft long lake with 7 sec. pause between shots, and nothing was missed. Each  following screen shot  tells you that this is a real bottom view which is just behind your boat on the left or on the right at the moment.
 
Using of full screen width for split screen view of map and normal SI will not bring much help and would have the same disadvantages comparing with Alive Screen shots SI mode (first picture below):

1.   Side views are moving (not static)
2.   Bottoms are vertical (not horizontal)
3.   Scale of view is almost half less.( Screen shots scale is 1.5-3 times bigger)
4.   Attention is jumping back and forth from left to right view (attention is concentrated on one static view).
Normal SI views are good for seeing big pictures for knowing relative locations of bottom objects, but if you are looking for fish on bottom background or for some small bottom details (sunken motors, victims ets) it is better to use  Alive Screen shots mode . If to use rotating bracket for sonars and turn it for 90 degree using completely full screen for one screen shot view – nothing would be missed at all (second picture):
