Softkeys
Instructions in this manual are based on HDS unit menus, not softkeys. If you have
an HDS-8 or HDS-10, you can get the same results using the softkeys.
To use softkeys:
1. T
ouch the desired softkey to change settings, view a softkey menu
or adjustment scrollbar.
2. U
se the keypad to select menu items and make adjustments to
scrollbars. Press Exit to close softkey menus.
NOTE: After making adjustments to options or settings, use the Exit
key to resume normal operation.
StructureScan
Consists of two powerful sonar views: Sidescan and Downscan. Used in conjunction
with the built-in broadband sounder, StructureScan gives you an underwater
panoramic view.
Sidescan
Sidescan
Broadcasts a sonar beam to each side of your boat allowing you to view structure,
and terrain without having to drive your boat over the top of it.
2
You can use Sidescan to:
•
Save waypoints at objects/locations off to side of the boat
•
Review history
•
easure the size of underwater objects and the distance from
M
one object/location to another object/location of interest using live
Sidescan returns or Sidescan history
•
Create sonar logs
•
se two frequencies: 455 kHz (more distance) and 800 kHz (better
U
definition)
Downscan
Uses the same technology as sidescan, but broadcasts the beam downward, giving
you the same high resolution in a familiar right to left display.
Downscan
You can use Downscan to:
•
ee different view of objects/locations selected with cursor on
S
Sidescan panel
•
Save waypoints
•
Review history and create sonar logs
•
se two frequencies: 455 kHz (more distance) and 800 kHz (better
U
definition )
•
Overlay Downscan imaging on the sonar page
