That statement is a little misleading. You are going to get an 8x8 structure of data with information on each zone. And the FoV is 45x45, making each zone about 5 degrees x 5 degrees. If you don't want the data in a particular area, just don't bother to look at it.

In my water level software I only look at the dozen or so zones in the center, the others not having much value.

Sorry for the confusion.

can i assume that 4x4 structure of data will give me about 11 degrees for each zone\?

Exactly. And if you want the 4x4, you can run at 60Hz, which some applications want.
