Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

1 Answer

I have a Humminbird 997C and two Mag 20 DT. They are connected through the Humminbird cannon link. The problem was intermittant in that if I played with the connecting cable termination at the number two downrigger the 997C would see the downriggers. I assumed that I had a bad connector cable and purchased a new one and installed it. I solved the intermittant problem in that it does not see the downriggers at all now. I spoke with the tech people at the factory and they sent me a new cannon link. I installed it with no change. The 997C unit has been back to the factory twice for other problems, which weere fixed, and the software was updated to the latest version. Both downriggers have been returned to the factory twice for other problems also. I spoke with the factory tech two weeks ago and they were some what stumped. They were going to meet and get back to me. I have not heard from them.

The down rigger is not got set properly.reset it again properly and check out. ----------------- the user can quickly set-up and update settings that operate down riggers. When fishing short-handed on the boat, the Cannon Link module enables the captain to easily operate the down riggers from the console, while the mate tends to the rigging lines. Set the down rigger operation mode to Manual for complete control, Bottom Track to maintain distance off the bottom or Cycle to continuously move down riggers between two depths.

Monitor the down rigger depth and operation graphically on-screen combined with the sonar graph.

View temperature at depth, speed-through-water and water clarity on the Fishing System screen when using the Cannon Speed-N TEMP Sensor.
ALSO IT CAN BE THE PROBLEM OF CANON SPEED -N TEMP SENSOR if the sensor is faulty then it will not detect the down rigger.ask the service center to check the sensor. ------------- also check out the three ports in the front side of the down rigger if there is something got stuck up in the hole of the ports the unit will not get connected.clean the ports and recheck . -------------- this will help.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.thanks.

My 997c has a low voltage message on the screen every 20 minutes.

When you have a low volt warning, it is simply because you have low volt. To confirm this use a multi-meter and check the voltage at:
A- the power connector for the GPS
B- the battery directly.
If A is bellow 10.5 V and B is above 11,x you have a cable problem (long or/and thin cable). If they are more or less the same, but bellow 10.5V you need to check your electric system.
