### How many square foot of floor panels do I need to cover a room 12 foot x 6 inches x 13 feet in square eet?

To convert your 2 dimensions to square feet you have to multiply them together.
12.5 x 13 = 162.5 square feet.
You do not give the size of floor panels you want to use
To find out how many panels you neeed, divide 162.5 by the square footage of the panel
eg, 12" x 12" panels are (1x1) 1 square foot so you would need 162.5 of them.
24" x 24" panels are (2x2) 4 square foot so you would need 41panels

### I have a gps Map 498-depth sounder not working? Have new transducer from Garmin-it flashes "00"-it is not connected to boat yet (transducer)-need it be or can I put in a bucket of water (need it be in...

If the transducer is out of the water, you will not get a reading and see the flashing depth. You should hear and feel the clicking in the transducer when out of the water and working properly. Are you getting a temp reading when out of the water?

### Unable to track the bottom

I think you need to level the transducer. You have it pointed way out in front of you so that when you're going fast it is able to bounce the signal off the bottom and it comes back to where the boat has traveled to. When you're going slow you're bouncing it out in front of you but it comes back up in front of you. Sorry but I can't find a picture of a Garmin transducer. Hope this helps.

### Depth sounder problem

If the transducer is mounted off of level, an error is introduced due to angle. It is a fixed percent offset, say 10%. so 10 feet reads 11 and 100 reads 110. There is an offset function to read depth below ducer, depth below keel, and depth below waterline, but these are fixed amounts in feet, not a percentage. Look at the transducer when it is operating, boat angle considered.

### 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.

### Log and trip function not registering

It is unlikely the problem is in the A65 screen.....most likely it is an issue with the paddlewheel itself, its circuit in the depth/speed transducer, or least likely, in the DSM25 sounder module.

Both the log and the trip functiions are read from the paddle-wheel sensor of the connected DSM25 sounder module and transducer.

1. Make sure you have a DSM25 sounder module and transducer with a paddle wheel (the A65 is available without the DSM25 option.)

Double check the connections between the DSM25 and the A65, as well as the transducer connection to the A65. There is an indicator light on the DSM25 to confirm it is on.

2. Make sure the paddle wheel turns freely. They tend to get fouled easily with debris and growth.

3. Make sure the A65 is giving to a reading for SPEED when underway or when having a buddy spin the paddlewheel by hand. Do not confuse SPEED with SOG. SPEED is from the paddlewheel.....SOG (Speed over ground) comes from your GPS sensor and is not used by A65 for log or trip purposes.

If you get npo speed reading at all the paddle wheel may be defective or the depth/speed transducer may be defective. See your dealer about a replacement.
