The Dynamic Contrast setting for MEGA Live significantly changes how the picture is presented in order to highlight different aspects of your view. There are 3 settings or modes available: Balanced, High and Low. We have provided examples and explanations for each of the Dynamic Contrast modes below.
To find this setting, perform the following while in the MEGA Live view:
- HELIX: Press the MENU key > use the DOWN cursor key to select Dynamic Contrast > use the LEFT and RIGHT cursor keys to make your selection.
- APEX and SOLIX: Press the Menu key or select Sonar (MEGA Live) in the top left corner of the view screen > use the touchscreen or the joystick to select Dynamic Contrast > make your selection with the touchscreen or Joystick and Checkmark key.
Special Note: The Dynamic Contrast settings can be additionally fine-tuned using the Contrast and Sensitivity settings. The default value for both is "10". This is meant to be a starting point, and we encourage experimenting with the values to create the best picture for your needs.
Dynamic Contrast: Balanced
This setting is the default choice because it offers the best image from MEGA Live in most water conditions.
Dynamic Contrast: High
Useful for shallow water conditions and when there is too much clutter in the image. However, the setting is a not a strong choice for jig tracking.
Dynamic Contrast: Low
This setting is most useful for deeper water and increased bait tracking and visibility. You will expect to see more clutter overall, however.
