1945 and 1912 is along time to compare such a task.
That's an analogy based on an assumption. The script could have just as easily read that they found him in 2 hours and we'd all accept it.
That doesn't excuse a plot hole(that was changed from the source material)
Again, it wasn't Hydra tech. Remember Howard was limited by the technology of his time as he put it in Iron Man 2.
Not really, not when it took multiple atempts to look for Titanic even through the 40s. And Titanic was about 3 times the size of the ship Cap went down in. And people knew the spot where it sunk.
But it wasn't an assumption, Stark was stearing blind looking for a ship that obviously wasn't getting picked up by his radar.
