I can run stuff in shallow with little issue, but over deeper waters of 30-35' or more I get some cross talk.
You got 'em wedged in there pretty good though!
Yeah it was only in 10' of water, no fishing in 30-35 around here!. I was testing something else and threw on both sonars just to see if anything interfered. Wasn't moving so didn't mess with DI/SI. Had the lowrance in max interference rejection and there was a couple specks of interference here and there but not much at all. Never plan to use the bird in 2d or DI. and never plan to use both units when the bird SI is on. Interference wouldn't effect me in this case anyways. bird is just for mapping with lakemaster. Some day when the fishing sucks I will sit down and actually see if I can get them to run everything together at once and play nicely.
Heck I have room for another, right on top of those two. Might just need another to run straight SI. Helix 7 maybe or an 1198? Seeing a few 1198's coming up for sale cheap. Might have to stand up to drive, but that's just a slight issue.
