bottom on each side and beneath the boat as well as providing improved target
identification at greater depths, a clearer display with less interference and
enhanced target separation. ForwardScan™ sonar technology built into the GO9
XSE (transducer sold separately) also provides forward-looking, two-dimensional
sonar views of the bottom depth ahead of a boat – a powerful defense against
running aground and an invaluable tool for locating secure sites to drop
