Let's see, there is 1024 meg in a gig. use the 24 meg for overhead and dat files leaving 1000 meg for video...give or take
1000 meg times 5 seconds = 5000 seconds or 83 hours
YIKES!!! Is this correct? If it is then we definitely need to push Humminbird for a sonar/gps viewer that will run on a laptop or pc. That would allow us to capture all day and view in the recliner in the evening.
I mentioned this over in the other forum a while back. This time I found the link to Lowrances download viewer.
Ideally I would like to see a full blown emulator of the 997 using the data captured as source input as though it were real time with all the functions of the real unit. This would allow fast forward, zoom, gps data, the works. The lowrance has even more functions than the sonar unit itself. But I'd be satisfied to have just the same as what is on the unit. I would think the R&D guys already have this.
I know you can do that on the unit itself but if you constantly bring the unit in the house and back it will eventually wear on some part and fail and at the worse possible time.
the possibilities are numerous. Most of all I would like sitting in the easy chair reviewing data and planning a more detailed investigation of promising sites for the next trip. Perhaps even have more time to review instead of taking away "line in water time".
