You should be asking the repair guys about how much it will cost to repair. They determined the specific parts that have failed.

The members here are not fortune tellers and crystal ball readers. We have no idea of what parts have failed inside of your unit!

My lowrance Elite 4 dsi fishfinder cuts on and after a few seconds cuts off.


http://www.lowrance.com/en-US/Products/Fishfinder-Chartplotter/Elite4DSI-en-us.aspx

1-You might not be out of warranty

2- try powering the unit up without any of the other accessories plugged into the unit. Sometimes if you have something wrong in something else when the unit powers on it self checks, any problem anyplace when it first boots up will cause it to shut down
3 I don't know anything about these things but have seen other devices where this happens and the problem is usually a faulty add on

I cannot bring up a marine chart showing depth and markers on my


Marine maps must be installed on SD cards. The base-map does not contain marine maps. Most on-line or brick-and-mortar hunting/fishing stores carry map cards for Lowrance units.

Garmin Fishfinder 160 will not display bottom contours and does not display depth continuously.


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

Problem with navman 4150 fish finder


I installed my Navman 4150 depth finder along with the Navman GPS unit when I purchased my Bayliner Trophy 20Ft. Offshore model. Everything was ok for one year and it has been downhill since then. Losing signal, unbelievable high depth ranges, blank periods, etc.. I now can't even get a reading tieded up at the dock. I am now giving up and shoping for a quality unit.. Cape Disappointment.........

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.
