Japanese electronics

Postby legendaryyaj » Sat Sep 07, 2013 2:42 pm

With all the emphasis on tackle, what's up with the JDM electronics? Does anyone know what technology they have over there and what they use? From the various videos I've seen, I haven't seen much and most of their units look to be totally different than what we have. I don't normally see Humminbirds or Lowrance units on their boats at all.

Is anyone else paying attention to this kind of stuff? As much as I like tackle, I also like the electronics part of it as well and how far we've come along.

This is probably the first video I've seen with what looks like a regular Humminbird unit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9lpf7eNjBk Now I'm not saying Ive seen them all but the majority that I have seen, they have totally different units. Would be interesting to compare.

ive noticed the same thing with the DUO videos, but lets be honest they are all fishing the SAME community holes on lake Biwa and prob dont need structure scan or HDS12s.. They all seem to use down sonar with fish alert(at least in the DUO videos)
