Using the 360 lets you make precise casts to fish in front, to the side, or to the rear of your boat as you see them on your screen. This really shines when fishing lakes with little weed growth. When 4 to 5 pound smallies are on bare sand, mud, or rocks they can't hide from the 360. I set my range to 55' so I get use to the distance of a full cast and shorter depending on how far the fish are away from the boat. Once you get use to it, a fish that shows at 37.5' to the 2 o'clock will soon have a bait in it's face.
