I got mine a couple weeks ago and I love it. I haven't had to mess with the settings very much either. The factory settings are almost perfect from what I can tell so far. It's put me on some fish right away. There is a lot of options that will take a long time to learn. Do you know if you can erase the tracking on the navigations. I know you can turn it off but I just want to erase what's already on there.

Are you guys doing the transom mount ?? Just got mine and am in process of trying to mount it on my OMC troller. I really like the concept of the widescreen....most of the vertical in old style screens is a waste anyway. It`s a shame they only have the skimmer style TD in the DSI.....looks like I`m gonna have to notch my skeg to get it to fit on centerline of troller. About the time i get it mounted they`ll come out with a puck !!
Ya`ll keep up with updates on the setup....I got the X version since I have an HDS-7 on the console.
