My Eagle Cuda 300 does not want to display the correct depth. It goes from 20 feet up to 80 feet, up and down. When I first purchased and installed it, the depth reading worked great. HELP!!

SOURCE: depth finder problem

Try adjusting the trim or get the boats nose up even to the point of porpoise (I think thats how you spell it) if the signal improves with the nose up you may need to lower the transducer more than the manufacturer recommends. the slight looking foward will also help. My current sounder works pretty well up to about 25kn

SOURCE: Lowrance x96 does not function after 20 feet depth

Your transducer needs to be adjusted so the return signal can be picked up. Some of these have to be super tuned to receive the signal. Also the transducer may be moving ever so slightly when the boat is traveling at speed. You may have some water turbulence interference all contibute to signal return.

SOURCE: Eagle 640c Fish Finder dosen't read corectly.

I had the same problem and got the transducer changed. It now works perfectly. That could be the problem you are having... bad transducer.

Have a Cuda 300 It shows 62 ft on water or land. This is my second new unit, the first one did the same thing. Tried factory reset.


The transducer for the unit might have junked out, or else you have a floor model that is programed for that depth. lol

99% of the time when i power unit up, it gets stuck on 54.8 feet


After testing everything out, I went out and bought the new Eagle Cuda 300 model. I hooked that up and made sure it worked, then tried the Cuda 242 unit on the new transducer. That did it, it worked fine. The problem was a bad transducer. Might have been that -30 deg weather last winter, I'm taking that off the boat this winter. Transducer cost about $50-$60, new Cuda 300 cost about $80.

Eagle Cuda 128 does not read water depth


Hi Chris, Did you get a fix for this issue? My Dad's Eagle Cuda 128 is also having the same problem - constant reading of 60ft. I'd love to hear if you have a solution. Many thanks,
