    “Ultrascan is also backward compatible with existing Interphase transducers.”
    That’s good because I’ve had buyers remorse with their existing product. All sizzle, no steak.

    I installed mine with simple expectations: I wanted to be able to find my way in to secret gunk holes when there was no visibility in the water. It works. It works straight ahead, and 90 degrees to either side. It is NOT as easy to interpret as the sidescan pisctures I’ve seen, but I don’t have to be running perpendicular to my destination either.

    Would FLS be useable to detect floating containers ahead?

    The Farsounder FS-3DT claims to see a container at 1,400′, but costs a whole lot of money:

    But I don’t think that reliable container avoidance is a reasonable expectation from more inexpensive FLS.
