Did they explicitly make Ultrasound so you can't use other senses while active in 5th?

Because previously you could layer the wireframe 3D data over your other vision modes.

Now the question remains if you can use Ultrasound as a blind person, if it was implanted or some such.

Changelings do at least got something.
Concepts are great, but implementation sucks. Why not improve it?

There is actually a story out there with that exact thing.

Was the 4e "fashion" book.

Story focused on a Runner turned bodyguard some tween pop music star, or some such. He ends up taking down a totally innocent fan cause of the kid's "constant perv stare". Turns out the kid was born without eye receptors or some shit, making normal cybereyes a no-go, so the kid was using ultra sound to move about in crowds, and attributed to his "creeper stare"
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

You can use Ultrasound Sensor Augmentation as a blind person. You can also use Astral Perception as a blind person. Neither use your actual eyes. Both replace your normal "vision".

Yes he could.

But keep in mind ghouls are dual natured, thus usually using astral sight if its physicailly blind.
