Side Imaging is HUGE for helping in the Hudson....you can scan 250 feet to either side of your boat when looking for schools and find them.Thanks for the input guys. I had been looking at the Simrad GO9 but it has a lot of features I'll never use (radar, autopilot, etc) and at $1,000 I hate to pay for features I don't need. SIMRAD and Lowrance are the same company, so after your input I'm a bit more skeptical. Does side imagining provide much benefit chasing stripers in the Hudson?
Humminbird does the same and IMO has a better imaging and clarity. My onix is a 10 in screen and the new Solix I use is a 15 in screen.Then I guess I'll be looking for side imaging. Lowrance and Simrad side imaging looks pretty impressive (at least on line). I also liked that you can save a way point by touching a fish arch in the downscan history and it shows up on yiur chart. Are they all about the same?
The diagonal screen length is 10 inches so the whole unit is around 12" wide and 8 inches tall.Doc Z. What are the overall dimensions of the Onix. I don't have too much room to mount. The Simrad GO9 was the only 9" that would fit in the 11" horiz space I have available.
