I have got a Legend 3000 and would not swap it for any sounder I have ever used.Real easy to use,great detail,and I don't reckon that the old stigma about running on auto applies to this unit,the real time sonar tells you immediately if you need to have a closer look.Knobs are great,much better than buttons.
I have not used an x15 but I would expect it to be good,and ,at the price
it should be.

Gotta back Flynny up on this. I saw one of the first Zercoms LPG 2000 to hit our shores & had to have one! (Same unit is now called Legend 3005) Went straight & got one for my (then) new boat.
The easy of use is absolutely great, not hitting buttons all day to keep it at optimal performance. Knobs with infinate variation are great compared to buttons that beep & blurp @ every touch.
320 vertical pixels, 16 shades of grey, RTS window, one touch split screen zoom, 8 levels of White (grey) Line, fast scroll rate for fine definition. I'm more than happy with mine & don't hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.



BTW- I am in no was affiliated with Humminbird or BLA.

Hi Fitzy,
I sell legends but believe me I tell it like it is!
I don't support products that I can't use with confidence,I too am not aligned with anybody.
I use one,Motty sold me on them as I suspect he did with you.They are as good as it gets around the dough.

HI Flynny,
Actually mate, it was me who told Motty about them. He then went for a spin in Harros old Hornet for a looksie & made the change-over soon after. #;D

thanks for the prompt reply fellas :)
this sounder looked the goods when i had a fiddle with it.
i can't remmber what the differenc was between the 3005&2005 except for more pixels on the 3005 320verticle if memory serves & 500 pacific peso's...and something to do with dual cones operating at the same time for picture clarity/target seperation,,,or iam on the wrong track..
anyway sounds the goods will track one down for my new boat .

Hi Jonesy
Think they are the same set renamed!
My first LPG 2000 was the same as my
Humminbird 3005,somewhere in the middle they were called TeleflexXXXX
end of the day we are talking the same good set.

I got one of these legends before they came out in australia got it from the states. It was the best thing that I have ever seen for about 2 months untill it stopped working had to send it back to the U.S. they said as they are new I did not have to find my reciept which I had lost just pay postage to them once they get it with in 2 days they would be sending it back and they would pay the postage I was very impressed by there service so far.Anyhow a very impressive sounder got the 2000 but I think if I had my time again I would get the 3000 bigger screen higher pix count.
