      I installed this unit on my 21ft Grady. It was easy to install and works amazing. The downvision works great to show structure and the fish finder has good resolution. I use it to fish coastal salmon. It has been the best fish finding I have ever used. A great product at a great price and its easy to see in the direct sunlight.
