SOURCE: leak inside gps

Leak inside a gps is usually just a battery, sometimes they overcharge for to long and when happens the battery deforms and leaks. I have no idea where to send them to for repairs, bbut usually they are not that complicated to get into them and remove and replace the battery, they batteries in most gps units are the same size and usually the same shape as cellphone batteries, they just have different connections on the outside of them, but the insides are usually the same, also you might have one that you can run without the battery in it. I would suggest that you might want to open (if no warranty on it) up carefully, remove the battery and see if you can run it that way. Be advised though that if you do this, any power interruption to the unit while you are driving will cause it to shut down and you will have to start your trip entry all over again. Hope this helps.

My lowrance elite 4 HDI goes black when i get on plane so my backtrack feature doesnt work


The speed of your boats travel only directly affects your sonars ability to read the water depth.
your backtrack feature is GPS based. These is not affected by your boat being on plane.

Your screen being black sounds like your sonar is losing bottom contact due to air bubbles passing under the transducer. This is a common occurrence with most boats.

Add some details regarding what your seeing and we can help you get a better handle on your difficulty.

What is causing the depth to keep blinking when my boat is on plane.sometimes the screen just shows a horizontal line where the depth should read. garmin541s brand new


First, make sure that the connection is good, clean, and tight on both ends of your transducer. Sometimes turbulance or temperature stratifications in the subsurface water will cause this. Also, check the specifications of your transducer. Some do not perform well while moving at high speed. One test, when on plane, when the problem occurs, slow the boat and see what happens to the readout. Repeat this several times. This should help narrow down what is causing the problem.

X105C unit only works in very shallow water less than 10 feet. Every now and then I might get a deep water reading when idle but 99% of the time the depth display just blinks indicating not able to get a...


When my depth finder acted like this I found out it was the sender that had not done well over the winter and was giving me false readings especially when the boat was at speed. The sender and cable only cost around 30 or $40. The hard part was since I have a pontoon boat getting under the Pontoon and replacing the wire in the spring when the water was cold.

you can get a specialist to come and fix/reapply the sensor to the boat and possibly fix it if it is broken var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_4fdf0f4e4d1b403489dd188ff9311fa0(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } FCTB_Init_4fdf0f4e4d1b403489dd188ff9311fa0(document['FCTB_Init_3475a15565eb478ea69972d3c6d88377']); delete document['FCTB_Init_3475a15565eb478ea69972d3c6d88377'] var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_a70c5362962d40be976e65b2158646e3(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } FCTB_Init_a70c5362962d40be976e65b2158646e3(document['FCTB_Init_379c2b6472d1424f847e6d43703fa3ad']); delete document['FCTB_Init_379c2b6472d1424f847e6d43703fa3ad']

My fishfinder will not continue to read shallow depths as well as in shallow depths when drifting and occasionally running across the water. My unit is a lowrance 522c color gps/fishfinder.


Hello. Your observation is spot on and it is actually a characteristic that is always true when using sonar. Yes, your Lowrance uses the same sonar as a nuclear powered submarine does. The two factors you focus on, water depth and boat speed are perhaps, the two biggest factors when it comes to the quality of the fishfinder. The boat's engine should be in gear at an idle or just above. Experiment with your boat to find the best throttle location for good arches. Usually, a slow trolling speed works best. The depth of the fish can determine if the fish will arch on the screen. If the fish is in shallow water, the fish is not in the cone angle very long, making it difficult to show an arch. Typically, the deeper the fish, the easier it is to show an arch.

No depth reading while on plane.


Depending on your transducer type, you may have a liquid filled type that simply needs refilling. If this is the case check for leaks and get it redone. If not it could be transducer placement or cavitation under the hull.
