Why does my screen blink all the time on my 178c sounder


check your power connection, if that is still good your unit may be dying

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.

Latitude & longitude


Here is the way to find the Lat/Lon Info on TomTom.
Tap on main screen. You will be taken to Main menu 1 of 2. Tap on the arrow. You will move to Main menu 2 of 2. Tap on Browse map. You will see the lat/Lon info on the bottom left hand corner (of a selected location) Tap on another location and you will see that the lat/Lon will change to that of the newly selected location. You can use the slider on the right hand side to zoom in or zoom out so that you can get the Lat/Lon info of far off locations. However, for this purpose, google maps would be a better option. But if you know the address, use the find button which will give you easier access to Lat/Lon info.

I have a lcx16 sounder gps with a lgc12s antenna receiver. The gps module is not responding Do I need a new antenna ?


more than likely you do or you have a bad connection. It's always best to take this sort of issue to a shop in the event something is wrong with the unit itself before buying the new gps.

How do i insert a negative (-) deg co-ordinate into my nuvi 200


Positive Lat Lon coordinates are for the eastern and northern hemispheres respectively. If you have a negative coordinate, they indicate a location in the western or southern hemisphere.

To enter a Latitude coordinate of, for example, -31 degrees, you would enter 31 degrees, but specify S (for South) rather than N (for North)

Negative Lon coordinates would use W (for West) instead of E (for East)

Hi!
here's a user manual/installation manual for your sounder:
NS25
If the depth sounder portion works, I would suspect the settings are off (check first) or the gps circuit needs repair.
Best of luck!

Depth Sounder does not display depth


I will see if I can get mine off the hull for testing. Still have found no procedure. Thinking about just replacing the sounder with another unit.

GPSMAP 235 Sounder


Some 235s had a problem with the contrast setting. When the contrast is set to full the screen turns black.

When you turn on the GPS and the screen goes black, try tapping the left arrow on the track pad a few times. You should see the screen start to lighten. If that doesn't work, tap the power key and try tapping the left arrow a few times.

Depth: Could be for a number of reasons, too deep for the sounder - check the manual for it's max depth. Dirty water, sounder unable to penetrate through to the bottom. Weed or other debris covering the transducer. Transducer on a swing mount & being pushed out of alignment then dropping back in once stopped.

Speed: Is the speed readout controlled by a GPS or paddlewheel? If it's GPS, check the power connection of the sounder, may be loose which would also cause the depth to 'drop out'. If it's paddlewheel, you're down to bad connections or faulty unit.
