The 3D looks much better than Garmin hopefully it functions well and is just a small (transducer) upgrade for those with gen 3 units.

Looks like similar technology to what Garmin is offering (except no forward scan). Big question will be, can we access the data from it?

No, it is a external BOX, the Structurescan 3D Box and if i understood right:
...it has to be connected through Ethernet to the GEN3 Units.
..-also it is a new Sounder which needs more Connectors (2) to the Structurscan 3D Box.
I believe i have read something about "it has has more Chrystal`s in it" , which might be the reason for the two Connectors ?

Have you seen both or what are you basing your comparison on? I've watched whatever videos I've been able to find and so far the 3D image quality looks pretty similar and assuming you don't have a GPS/display unit alread the two are very close in price, The only advantage Garmin has is that they also have a forward scanning unit and the only advantage I've seen so far for the Lawrence unit is that you can record your 3D scans (although I've not actually verified this).
