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.

You will need to visit a Kenwood dealer (the dealer you purchased the unit from?) and they can assist you with that.

I can't get an update for my Iway 500c . It has been ordered since either April or May from LEI . What can I do ? It makes me wish that I had purchased something else

I received an email from LEI on 3/19/2010 concerning this issue and was informed that they have no plans to provide future updates for the Iway 500c. Bad news for both of us, I own one as well.
