Open Question

I have a Bottom Line Tournament 1101 Fish Finder. Does the transducer have to be mounted on a bracket, or does it screw straight on the boat? Thanks

SOURCE: navman 4500 fish finder w/transom mount transducer

I finally got an email reply from Navman. If the unit is less than two years old (mine is not) they will repair it. If it is over two years old, or if you can't prove that it is less than two years old, you can ship it to them and they will repair it for the low, low price of 355 US dollars.

Pretty nice of them since it appears these units are highly problematic isn't it? I am wondering if they guarantee their fix, or just have you on the hook for another 355 dollars later.

Good Luck Everyone,

Walt

SOURCE: installing an old used lowrance fish finder

I don't think your old fish finder is the LMS-332C GPS Receiver listed above in the description. You don't need the speed wheel for the fish finder to function just the transducer and transducer mount. You should mount that on the back of the boat towards the center but not too close to the motor and not too close to the side of the board. Don't let it hand below the level of the boat. That should keep it from getting hit by the trailer or dragging on the bottom. Try to make it as level as possible. The green and white wires may be for the speed wheel but i'd need a model number for clarification. Hope this helps.

My hummingbird rf15 smartcast fish finder has stopped scanning.it still provides the water temperature but it no longer displays the depth and does not scan the bottom.


The Smartcast system uses the wireless version of a simple transducer and thermometer to locate fish, show structure and water temperature. From your description, it sounds like the transducer portion of the Smartcast device has stopped working.
Transducers are both simple and complex, sturdy and delicate. Here is a Science Minute: A fish finder electrical signal is sent to the transducer. The electrical signal to energize the transducer crystal is generated by an amplifier. The energized crystal reverberates at a particular frequency, to convert the electrical signal into mechanical acoustic or sound energy. The acoustic energy or sound waves causes oscillation of the water molecules through which the sound travels. The sound is pulsed out in a defined beam. These do not travel out in a straight line but in a wave pattern. The acoustic pulse travels through the water at a rate of approximately 4800 ft (1500m) per second in saltwater and 4920 ft/sec in fresh water.

The problem is that the crystal in all transducers (permanent mount, thru-hull mount and castable) is delicate. It is a crystal. Unfortunately the warranty on most of these is six months, and unless yours is newer than that, you may need to buy a replacement castable. The handheld unit should still work. While I think the idea of knowing what is "over there" is a good one for shore fishing, I haven't bought these systems because I could never get over the idea that repetitive casting of a crystal, no matter how well-housed, was a good idea. Good luck.

Hi. Just wondering how should the transducer for my humminbird 525 fish finder/sounder be installed correctly? Thanks


You can take a picture of the transom of your boat and email it to Humminbird and they will email it back to you where the transducer should be mounted at. Our email address is service@humminbird.com.

Transducer loses bottom at any type of speed greater than trolling. Worked fine last year with all the same setttings. All I can think of is , maybe the battery is low. The boat just came out of storage...


Check the transducer for any damage on the front part. Also make sure there isn't any damage on the bottom of the boat that is causing air bubbles to cross the face of the transducer. If it works at slow speeds there is definitely something causing air bubbles.

False fish readings


False fish readings are commonly caused by electrical interference such as alternator noise, and by air bubbles flowing across transducer.

For starters make sure your fishfinder is on an independent circuit and not on one powered by your ignition switch. In other words, you should be able to turn your fishfinder on, even though the engine is turned off. Ideally the fishfinder should be wired directly to the battery with an in line fuse.

Try running the boat at a speed slightly higher than trolling speed, then kill the engine, as the boat slows down to trolling speed do you still see false echos? If yes then the problem probably lies with how the transducer is mounted, or where it is located on the hull.

If you don't see the false echos when the engine is off, it may be necessary to reroute the transducer cable to keep it away from the boat's ignition wires. You can get transducer extension cables if necessary. Also there are filters that you can buy that suppress alternator noise buy attaching between the battery and the engine.

Another common cause of false echos from electrical interference is a transducer cable that has been cut and spliced.

I hope this information helps. Please reply if you have any questions about my response.
