Just got mine yesterday, going to mount it tonight after work. Last night I spent the evening going over the manual and I'm gonna take it to work and read it again on my lunch and breaks. Read everything on the BOC about it that I could find and downloaded Lowrances simulator. Just wondered if any of you have any tips on things you may have learned with yours that might help me out. I'm going to the river Saturday and start my education. Thanks guys, oh , btw, I picked this model due to what I have read right here , so thanks for that too.
