Hi to everyone!
I am going to buy the bottom composition module in a few days and I would like to have a better idea of its potential.So, is this module making a map, consisted of the general type of bottom composition or is it much more detailed?For example, is it possible to see the difference between a mud-consisted bottom and a mud- consisted bottom with several little rocks on it(20 cm rocks for example)?The later type is what many beautiful fishes prefer here and it is of utmost importance to find this type of bottom.
Some pictures would also help me to understand What I plan to buy.
Thank you!

Yes and no. You will be able to tell where the mud has more rocks in it because the soundings will get stronger returns (hopefully a good second echo if the depth is set correctly). You won't see the stones but the structure scan would provide you this information.

Eye candy.

This is bottom composition. About the smallest resolution I could manage was 4m. Darker spots are harder.


Same location (pin on the darkest spot) in structure scan mode.


This area is part of a big ledge that dries to 3.5m and drops to 35m with 50m comprising of rock/ coral / sand and mud. The bottom has areas where the rock is more solid than other spots.

Thank you Dannett!
I knew that I wouldn't be able to see every rock but if I can see the difference,that's ok!

Hi again Matt!
When I purchased the BH Module it was mentioned a Vegetation overlay was being developed. This was one of the main reasons I purchased it.
Has there been any progress with this?
Thanks again for an awesome product!!!
