WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET
Understanding a few simple concepts will help you grasp the detailed images of Humminbird Side Imaging® and make you a master of the lake or sea bottom. We’ve broken down one screenshot several ways, to show that what you see is what you get.
MARK WAYPOINTS AND GO
See something you want to investigate further? Mark it with a waypoint on your Side Imaging® screen. The exact location will be stored in your unit’s memory and is viewable on GPS cartography. Once you’ve marked a waypoint, Side Imaging® puts you on the right path — right away—by showing your boat orientation in relation to the waypoint.
HOW TO READ SIDE IMAGING
Reading the image produced by Humminbird® Side Imaging® is easy. Simply visualize the screen folded in half down the middle (behind the boat). Then, fold the image again at the lowest point of the water column. The dark blue area provides a visual representation of the water column and lake bottom directly below your boat.
UNDERSTAND THE BEAM
Humminbird® Side Imaging® Sonar uses a razor thin beam to take a “sonar snapshot” of the area up to 240 ft. to the left and right of your location. The return image for this slice is then added to the images taken immediately before and after to build an incredibly detailed view of the lake bottom.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR DISPLAY
Adjust Color and More: Choose from eight color palettes for more flexibility on the water. Adjust sensitivity for the best returns in any water condition. Even adjust sharpness to enhance edges and detail in any light.
NEW RANGE LINES
Enable range lines to judge the distance between your boat and underwater objects at a glance. In this image you can easily see that the main hull of this sunken ship is 27 feet from the sonar vessel’s starboard side.

NEW CONTOUR MODE
Remove the water column to see the bottom as though you were looking straight down from your boat. This image shows a submerged railroad track.
