SOURCE: on the GPS Garmin the radar screen shows our boat

My husband moved the boat slightly and it seemed to correct the radar screen somewhat. He is working on the whole boat at present so didn't want to take it completely for a drive down the river. If we have further problems we may call in or use the web site.

Thanks,

Farrar

SOURCE: Have just installed a Garmin 140 on a tracker

I would recommend having the back part of the transducer a little higher (toward the sky) than the nose of the transducer. When I say a little, I mean a very slightly. This way the nose of the transducer pushes the water and any bubbles away from the face.

SOURCE: I have an old Marinetek

Unfortunatly that transducer will not work on the new unit. The sonar sensor is not compatible with this transducer and I would doubt it would even match up to the plug in the Garmin. These units are very propriatory and you will have to use the transducer that came with the machine or one that was specifically designed for the sonar unit. The transducer for your newer unit should be able to mount flush on the hull without having to pull your boat out of the water. These newer units have the capability to see through the hull without having to mount them externally.

The GPS component of my Lowrance Elite-5 Gold is malfunctioning about 50% of the time.


Hey Les, Since you have replace both the unit and transducer, you have eliminated/diagnosed most of your problem.. Its in the wiring... sometime when I am in full GPS mode I get erroneous depth readings..?? Have you tried a different GPS module (the "puck")?

Hello! Do you have the PDF users guide for your unit? I'm looking at a copy in the troubleshooting section...I don't want to cover information you have already looked at or tried...Since I do not know if you have that manual I'll give you a few items to check...

Measure the battery at the units power connector...Must be at least 11 volts DC...In portable mode it uses 8 D cell batteries= 12 volts
Make certain the Transducer is securely connected...
Did you use the in-line fuse supplied with the unit?...
Try the Manual Depth Range...First turn off Auto Depth Range...From the sonar Page Hit MENU...Down-arrow to Auto Depth Range...Hit ENT...Hit Up-Arrow to Depth Range...Hit ENT..
And the Depth Scale Range appears...Up-Arrow or Down-Arrow to select a different depth range...Hit Exit...The minimum depth the unit can read is 5 feet...

If you do not have the PDF guide, here is the link...

Shows incorrect depth suddenly and Erratic displays


MY XD510c works fine then flashes 2.5 and fills the screen with black red blue white vertical lines...then after an amount of variable amount of time goes back to working for awhile

First time run, everything mounted correctly, power on, no depth or sonar return.


So the depth is flashing and you don't see any bottom return at all, right?

Are you in the water, or trying it out before you put the boat in the water?
If you are not in the water, try it out in the water because it can be difficult to get any kind of return out of the water.

Try resetting the X67c to factory defaults:
1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold the down arrow key
3. Press PWR while still holding the down arrow key, the unit will enter production test mode. Let go of the down arrow key
4. Press EXIT 5 times
5. Press ENT and the unit will shut off

Turn it back on and if you still have the same problem, depth flashing 0.0 or 0.5 or 60 probably and no bottom, then a good bet would be a bad transducer.

X510c most of the time it reads 1.6 for the depth, it flashes 1.6 then it will go to the correct depth for a shqrt time then get stuck on 1.6 again some times other depths but mostly 1.6


Does this occur at any depths...over 20ft even.

The X510c will have problems keeping depth in shallow water...especially if it is muddy, weedy down there.

If the problem occurs even in depth over 20ft, then try resetting the unit:

1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR until you see the depth (flashing or not) in the top left corner.

If the problem still occurs, make sure the transducer is clean and still mounted so that it is sending the signal straight down to the bottom.

If the problem still occurs, make sure the power is good. You can have the voltage displayed on the screen through the overlay data menu.

Does the problem occur at any speed? If the problem clears up when you stop or slow down, the problem is due to cavitation and the transducer will need to be moved to a location where it is in a smooth flow of water at all speeds.

If none of this helps, there may be a malfunction with the X510c. You can try to update it but you will need to get the software update from someone at Lowrance support and then find a way to connect your X510c to a Lowrance unit that has a memory card slot via a NMEA 2000 network. I can help you with this if you need.

Other than that you can have the X510c returned to the factory for service.

Eagle Cuda 128 does not read water depth


Hi Chris, Did you get a fix for this issue? My Dad's Eagle Cuda 128 is also having the same problem - constant reading of 60ft. I'd love to hear if you have a solution. Many thanks,

Si-tex cvs 106 mk11echosounder


To re-program the Si-tex CSV-106 depth sounder to feet/meters/fathoms: Push and hold down the MENU key while turning the unit on (POWER key) to enter a special menu. Release both keys after you hear two beeps, almost immediately. Use the LOWER ALARM key to select the desired unit for depth, then turn off the depth sounder. That's it, just turn on again to see the change.
There is also another menu (for testing sounder) available by pressing the MODE and turning on as above.
