Is ping speed the same as chart speed? Just recently upgraded from an x4pro and i feel like when the sonar page is up the scolling is slow. Is that just how it is? Ping speed is on highest or fastest setting. Anyone have the hook series that can offer tips?

Ping speed and chart speed are not the same.

Ping speed is the amount of time the ping in the transducer travels down and back.

Chart speed is the speed you sonar chart is scrolling on screen.

I'm not familiar with the hook 7. In a breif look at the manual I couldn't find anything either. Are you in the advanced setting?

Yes i opted to set up in advanced as i read it gives more options when familiar with the unit. The manual was pretty vague i read through that and also resorted to youtube and found nothing. Maybe it just has the one speed. I feel as though it might be slow but it could actually be functioning optimally and im just that unfamiliar with the technology. This thing is like cheating compared to my old unit

We got the same unit on our boat and after trying to understand the manual decided to buy the Dr. Sonar tutorial video for the unit, I will let you know what I think of it after we get it and will loan it to you if I think it is worth it.
