How do I remove shop demo from my 500c sounder?

Your transducer has to be plugged into the unit. If it does not sense the transducer it will default to demo mode.

Garmin 500c showing fish half a metre down almost continually

I assume that you are using the fish I'd or fish icons on your system. If that is the case your unit is either marking surface clutter and it is a strong enough signal return to fool it into thinking it's marking a fish or the sonar beam is catching the edge of the motor lower unit causing the same response. I would be inclined to think it is surface clutter. Turn the fish id off and read the unit in arch mode. This is more accurate and less likely to mislead you. Also learn to understand the importance of colors in relationship to signal strength if you have not done so already.

How do u put the gps locations in the Eagle Fishmark 500c Color Fishfinder

Hi, no good news I'm sorry. It's a fish finder not a combo fish finder/gps so you are unable to enter co-ordinates. Sorry Phil.

Sometimes these will go into demo mode for no apparent reason. You can access the diagnostics screen by holding the map/music button while powering up. Be careful which buttons you press in this mode - select only the on-screen buttons, not the hard-buttons as they adjust brightness and contrast. Select the correct operating mode and power the unit off, then on.

My Garmin StreetPilot 2730 won't hold its settings.

Do a hard reset.

Turn the unit off, then hold down the menu and map buttons, simultaneously, then turn the unit back on and continue to hold down the buttons down for at least five more seconds, then the unit will power up. At that point it's like the unit is being used for the first time and you will have to reset everything. You will lose your XM presets, but the MP3's were still there.

Also after if this does not work, plug in your garmin and mount it, mac or pc whatever, then go in your garmin file erase all maps should be gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img. Reload your maps from mapinstall.
