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.

Lowrance troubleshooting


Pay attention if depth readings shift during times when moving from spot to spot at higher speeds. If this is the case then you have air bubbles disrupting your sonar signal causing inaccurate readings or a loss of bottom lock for the unit. If over this weeds in shallow water, this at times creates havoc with sonar readings because of the wide variance of signal returns.
check the voltage at the head unit.You should have a minimum of 11.7 volts. 12.5 to 13.5 is optimal
lower power input can affect the overall performance of your unit.

How do I get water depths displayed on my C70


You haven't said if you have a DSM fitted ( sonar unit and tranducer) the C70 is only a multifunction display unit MFDU you then put a card in for navigation, a radar aerial/ scanner or a sonar unit for depth and fish finding .
if you have a sonar unit and it's working then
press Presentation
press Depth Digit and select on / off
press OK or cancel to return to the default display
hope this helps

Sonar intermittent very good through hull transducer , sonar works sometimes then will not work rest of day ,


Check the mounting location, check the cord connections, make sure the ducer is actually clicking when it is not working, otherwise either the unit or the ducer is going bad

Sonar not Working


Transducer not parallel to bottom - kicked up. Manually set depth to see if the auto depth is the problem.

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.

I have a garmin gpsmap 440s that will only read sonar depths a no wake speed. When I increase speed much past this the depth number blinks but does not track or change until I slow back down to idle again....


Sounds like the transducer is installed at the wrong angle or in such a way that it is getting a lot of air from something on the hull. If it is a transom mount, check that it is angled correctly and not too close to the motor or aft of some kind of thru-hull fitting that will cause turbulence.
