    Very interesting stuff,it seems basically same tech as the broadband radar.Pricey though!
    Ben,did you mount your broadband transducer beside or in front/back of the Structurescan transducer?I see Navico recommends them being within a foot of each other,but no other info.

    I thought BSM-1 and HDS where using CHIRP. How do they obtain comparable performance from 31W rms as a conventional 3750W sounder without sending out coded signals and using correlation at the receiver side?

    Are they thinking about making a bluetooth version to run as an app on the Ipad?
