Question about Humminbird FishFinder 580 (4067201) Antenna

1 Answer

GPS wont start up

The gps on my new Humminbird 580 combo won't work. I called Humminbird and they told me it takes 15 to 45 minutes for the gps to work on the first start up. I left it on for about 9 hours and it still wont work. I live in the mountains do you think this could be the problem?

Gps is is just that...GLOBAL so I don't think the mountains will be the entire issue. Try in a few different spots. Make sure there is no overhead obstruction like trees and such.
Reset the sounder to factory defaults, the manual will tell you how. These factory settings are made for your unit to work 'right oout of the box'.
Best of luck!

Do a master reset on the unit. restart and cross your fingers. If this does not resolve the problem you probably have an internal fault with the GPS unit.

Gps wont work but fishfinder works fine


This model has two versions, one with the GPS as an external piece, and one with the GPS mounted internally. If the location of the internal mounted GPS cannot get a clear shot at the satellites overhead, it will tell you it cannot get a GPS fix. If it says it is disconnected, you may have a problem with the internal GPS. There are external GPS pucks available for this unit. Here is a helpful website.

One thing you might try is restoring the defaults in your unit. One other thing is go into the menu under the sonar tab and adjust your Noise Filter. You may have some type of interference going on. You can call our customer service department and they will trouble shoot it for you. Our number is 800-633-1468.

Gps functions


Hi!
Here is a product manual:
787C2 it will tell you how.
You will need a blank sd card inserted into the card reader slot in order to take it to your computer, or you can save it to the internal memory as well.
See page 42 in the manual for step by step instructions.
Hope this helps out!
