If the transducer is mounted off of level, an error is introduced due to angle. It is a fixed percent offset, say 10%. so 10 feet reads 11 and 100 reads 110. There is an offset function to read depth below ducer, depth below keel, and depth below waterline, but these are fixed amounts in feet, not a percentage. Look at the transducer when it is operating, boat angle considered.

How do I replace the internal battery on a furuno 1650


Hi

I realize this question is a little date, but in case anyone else has the same query I'll provide a link to the owner's manual. Replacing the battery/fuse information is on Section 12-2. The battery is a CR2450-F2 ST2.

Hope this helps.

I have a used gp1650 f, gps fish finder. It has a white, black, & an open wire(looks like a ground strap) and need to know how to wire it correctly.


Hi!

According to the Furuno installation manual:
http://www.furunousa.com/ProductDocuments/GP1650F-GP1650DF%20Installation%20Manual%20%20n.pdf

The white wire connects to +12v, the black wire goes to battery negative and the shielded braid connects to a common ground on your vessel to minimize RF interference.

In case you require an owners manual, you can view/download it here:

Hope this helps and Happy Boating!

My Garmin 498C will not show the contore of the bottom or give me a depth reading. The GPS works and will show me charts but, not the sounder option though.


You need to check to see if the depth sounder transducer is connected or functioning. It might be turned off, the connectors may be bad or the transducer is bad. I don't have the 498 manual in front of me but I think there is a test function under the setup menu. I'd check my connections (the usual suspect) then run that.

Garmin tech support is pretty good/quick. So don;t be afraid to give them a call.

I can never read the fish on the screen of my sounder whether is in auto or manual mode (yes we are catching fish)


perhaps someone has messed with your sounder settings. You may want to factory reset the sounder from within one of the menus in your navnet. Also you may have a transducer going bad. Did you hit anything with it or run aground once? Maybe someone painted over the face of the transducer with bottom paint. There's alot of things that can cause this to happen. It would be best to have the sounder checked out before you do anything to the ducer. Remove your navnet and sounder and take it to a dealer to test on the bench. If you're in the maryland area, Mid-shore Electronics and handle this for you. Even if you're not, you can send the units to them.

My furuno depth finder gives me crazy depth readings after i go over 10knots..whats the problem?


Turbulence on the transducer is almost certain. If transom mounted, **** it slightly deeper aft and ensure that the leading edge is not exposed. If through hull, call me 847-746-0100

When I turn on the unit it will not read the depth only a blue screen and it will not let me switch out of auto mode or run the sounder test?


I know this is an old question but just ran across it. The 1833C/NT is a radar and chart plotter. It requires the external and optional black box sounder to have depth recorder functionality.

Furuno 4100 depth sounder shows depth twice what it really is


check your gain setting try auto gain and try manually gaining back to see if it resolves, if yes, send unit in to furuno, if no, ducer is probably at fault.
