    ...and Garmin isn't alone in this. It seems that interface designers the last few years have gone for sleek looks over quick functionality. IMO, any change that forces users to do additional (key presses, mouse clicks, gestures) is _BAD_.

    I liked the panoptix features. Like using the direction of the trolling motor is facing to scan water out in front of the boat. I'd like to see what that looks like when you point it at a dock and scan underneath them. Or being able quickly scan a 3d image of brush piles out in front of you while keeping your distance and not spooking those fish. I also liked how fast their gps refreshes for pinpoint accuracy of your boat location. And I liked the quality of down sonar, you could see the line flex when a guy dropped a jig on a fish and caught it. It was like watching a movie, crazy.

    Garmin has always been on the forefront of the electronics market, and for good reason. They've traditionally catered to the salt guys but I'm glad to see they are marketing some new products for us bass fisherman. They have some new products that are really going to shake the market up!
