Customer Question
I have a 571HD...

I have a 571HD and have read the confusing manual. I would like to know when I change the views on the screen by hitting the view button what are the views in relation to the down imaging and sonar?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Electronics Specialist should know?

I am not 100% how to set it up due to I don't believe it is working correctly due to I have a fishing buddy 120 by Humming bird and it was picking up fishing when my 571 was not?? every once and a while my 571 would show fish but not nearly as often as my 120??
