SOURCE: Garmin Fishfinder 160 will not display bottom

Change your setting from saltwater to fresh water even if you fish in sea water,your transducer is a 00/200KHZ and not a 50/200KHZ.
Good luck

SOURCE: garmin fishfinder 160 blue . no powerup

I have a 160 blue also, and this morning I had the same problem. I called tech support while I was out on the water but no help. When I got home I double checked my connections on the battery minder/selector and the fuse panel. My GPS worked fine but the FF only beeped, like it had low power and the display wouldnt come up. It came up once for about a second and then faded earlier on the water. I pulled the power and ground connections from the fuse block and put them directly on the battery, it came right up. I now run the FF wired straight to the single battery and the GPS and other items on my other battery.

Hope it helps.

Can I get an inboard transducer for my Garmon 160C fish finder?


Yes you can. You would need Garmin part #: 010-10224-00. You can order this part off the Garmin website if you do a search for 160 and look under the accessories.

When using it it sometimes go very faint and sometimes completely dissapears, it's not relaiable at all times


Hi.

That is a malfunction with the backlight system. Ensure that the power adapter is well plugged.

Ring Garmin at the number listed on the manual to have the unit repaired or replaced.
