What can i do to stop the flashing of the depth finder at times it will not show the current depth


Hey Joe,
Wow.. where to start.. there are so many things that will cause the issue you are describing.What type of electronics do you have? Does this happen at all speeds? Where is the transducer mounted? I need more info about when it stops reading.
1.Wrong setting on the unit
2 Bad transducer
3 Bad transducer mounting (either inside the hull or outside the hull.)
4. (In hull) Turbulence going under the boat (mine quits reading at about 55 mph @ half trim...the boat is lifting so much it causes air pockets so the transducer loses contact with the water)
5. (Outside hull) Turbulence around the bottom of the boat where the transducer meets the water.
Good luck,, when you get the info.. reply to me..

Just got an Eagle Fishmarkde pathfinder need help w/mounting transducer to motor at end of shaft. If that is possible?


Hi Mike
The transducer (depending on which one you have) should be mounted to the hull of the boat. If a transom mount, at the back of the boat of course and if a through-hull or in-hull ducer in an area that provides good contact with the water at all times.

You shouldn't mount the transducer on the motor.
I was unable to find a reference anywhere to the Fishmark DE.

Where do I place transducers on my boat?


That will depend on what transducers you are using. For different types of transducers you will get mounting brackets. These are usually available from the supplier of the marine transducer.
For example in-hull or tansom mounts.

Y cant i mount my structure scan transducer on the bottom of the boat


This is what the manual says:
The StructureScan transducer can be mounted on the transom,
jackplate, step or directly to your boat's hull.
When mounting it directly to the hull, you must purchase a high-
quality, marine grade above- or below-waterline sealant/adhesive
compound.

Installing transducer


I assume you're talking about a transom mount transducer. Best if the leading edge of the transducer is even/level with the hull and tilts slightly down in the back or trailing edge of the transducer. Also try to eliminate a gap between the leading edge of the transducer and the hull.

Gps problem


If the new harness / parts are listed for use with this model GPS, it should work - unless you have miswired something. Double-check your work. Make sure all connections are made up tight. Pay particular attention to the ground wire. Relying on the boat to pass ground it not reliable. Look for damaged or cut cable from power source and transducer. You may wish to troubleshoot with a meter or a test light to be sure power is available at the GPS. Good luck!

I have a 798ci HD SI that has always workd great. I replaced the mounting bracket for the transducer not long ago. A few days after i discovered that the side imaging and GPS is no longer working. What...


Check the height of the transducer, it could be mounted too high. Most manufacturers will suggest mounting the transducer 1/8" below the bottom of a fiberglass boat and 3/8" below an aluminum boat. Check your manual for the manufacturers suggested mounting height.

I have a new unit to fit. Can the transducer be mounted inside the hull? It currently gives me strange readings whether inside or out but we are on dry land - if that makes a difference


there are two kinds or transducers out there on the market --- some that can be mounted inside the hull and others that need to be mounted on the outside of the hull, the instruction manual should indicate which transducer you have. AND YES the transducer will only work when you are on the water --- the readings on land are no good and it will not work. install it on the boat and then test the unit on the water. BUT if you do want to test the unit before you install it to the boat you can always take the boat out to a lake ( or wherever ' on the water ' ) and mount the transducer to a long dowel or stick and hang it over the edge of the boat and this will work fine for testing.

Sonar does not appear to work - not picking up depths or bottom structure. All other functions look good.


This problem is most likely linked with your transducer.

1. Check your transducer cable and make sure the plug terminals are clean, as well as the plug on the back of the unit.
2. Make sure the transducer cable is plugged in correctly and securely.
3. Make sure the transducer is in the water and mounted according to the directions, parallel to the bottom of the boat
4. Turn the unit on while the boat is in the water, but with the engine OFF.

IF it works when the engine is off, but vanishes when the engine is on, you may be having electrical interference.

IF it works when the engine is running, but vanishes when the boat is moving, it is a turbulence problem. Move the transducer.

IF it does not work at all, try borrowing a new or a "known good" transducer and seeing if it works then. If so, replace the transducer.

Let us know if these work or now.

A65 Transducer


jmiller,

Sound like your getting turbulence from the hull or your angle is allowing cavitation under the transducer. Look under the hull where the traducer is mounted and look for a part that has no obstruction including saltwater pickups, hull relieves, etc. The other thing to check is to take a strait edge on the bottom of the transducer to ensure the angle is slightly forward than the hull.
