The transducer has to be in the water or attached to the inside of the hull if fiberglass with no air between the hull and the transducer. It doesn't transmit thru air.

I was told that the Uniden QT-206HP depth sounder will not work thru an alunium hull is this true or false


Hi!

The transducer for your depth gauge will not work through an aluminum hull. A drilled through-hull transducer or a transom mount transducer are your options here.

Just in case you require it, your Owners Manual can be viewed/downloaded at:

Hope this helps..

Hello, our Raymarine ST40 depth sounder on our trailer sailer has stopped working only shows 0.00 depth on the display screen. However the metres symbol now flashes on/off. I have checked the cable...


now there is a chance that the transducer is bad ,, but I would check the battery voltage and make sure you have a soild 12 volts to the unit. also in my many years of working with and installing these units on boats I have see the needle pins ( where the plug inserts in the back of the display unit ) bend and/or break off completely. look in the plug area of the display unit and make sure all pins are intact. one more place to look for the problem is in the plug itself, take the plug apart and inspect the wire connection and make sure they are all good. if after all the above has been checked then I would assume that it is the transducer itself.
if you have anymore questions with this problem, please feel free to write back and ask,

If the transducer is out of the water, you will not get a reading and see the flashing depth. You should hear and feel the clicking in the transducer when out of the water and working properly. Are you getting a temp reading when out of the water?

Loses the depth after around 60 feet.


Is the transducer face clean? Fouling and barnacles can cause poor depth readings. Also, a low power output from transmitter or poor sensitivity of the receiver (both internal), or a broken transducer cable connection (usually accompanied by heavy noise being painted on screen). With your ear in the water, fairly close to transducer (6-10 ft., you should hear a clear tick-tick-tick sound as it transmits on a medium depth range.. No power adjustment is available in the menus, but the unit does transmit at a slower rate, with wider (stronger) pulses on the deeper ranges.

If you put a new battery in the boat then look around the battery and make 100% sure that you hooked up ALL of the accessory wires to both NEG and POS posts. Sounds dumb but I have come accross it multiple times. As for the engine, if it turns over but will not start then I am about 80% sure that you need to have your carbs cleaned. Fuel sits in the bowl of the carb, then after about 30 days starts to varnish, after varnish it starts to look like mollasses. Then spring comes around and you squeeze the fuel bulb and crank it over forcing that old **** into your idle jets. That is why it is really a good idea to have your carbs fogged before you store your boat for the winter.

Unable to track the bottom


I think you need to level the transducer. You have it pointed way out in front of you so that when you're going fast it is able to bounce the signal off the bottom and it comes back to where the boat has traveled to. When you're going slow you're bouncing it out in front of you but it comes back up in front of you. Sorry but I can't find a picture of a Garmin transducer. Hope this helps.

Hello geld1. Your problem is the transducer, cable or connector. Check transducer with an ohm meter, flex the cable while ohming the restance shouldn't change. The location and mounting of the transducer could be the main problem. Use the the correct gel film including a secure postion support.
