Optimum tilting

The center of the beam can be set in 1-degree increments from 5 degrees from the horizontal, to 90 degrees from the sea surface. The transducers ultra sonic beam sweeps a specific sector and bearing. When pointing straight down, the beam will give a high definition picture of the sea floor. As the beam moves from the perpendicular to the horizontal, bottom definition reduces and fish detection improves.
