Hello.

Did some recordings with a Hook2 in sl2 format but sonarviewer doesnt display any sidescan.

It does work in the old sonarviewer program from Lowrance.

before removing card from the unit i did convert to structuremap. could this be the issue, even though theyre still in sl2 format?

thank you

It probably means there is no depth recorded in the sidescan channel, which the sonar viewer currently relies on. We are of this issue and working on a fix - it seems some recent Lowrance units/firmware revisions are recording sidescan in this way now, although that never used to be the case.
If possible it would be very useful to look at one of your SL2 files that exhibits this problem. If you are willing to share it, please zip it up and share to This email address is being protected from spambots.

I'm having the same problem. I have a lowrance hook2 7. I'm glad to see that I was not doing something wrong. I'm very interested in your investigation of this issue and potential fix.

Hi Scott,
Sorry for the late reply. Is there any chance that you could share an example of a sonar log file that is not showing sidescan to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we can add it to our test data, which will help in creating this fix. If the file is large, it is best to use a file sharing service such as WeTransfer.

Hello,

I have the same problem. I'm using the Lowrance Hook reveal tripleshot and there seems to be no sidescan data.
I always abortet the convert to structuremap.
