Check the height of the transducer, it could be mounted too high. Most manufacturers will suggest mounting the transducer 1/8" below the bottom of a fiberglass boat and 3/8" below an aluminum boat. Check your manual for the manufacturers suggested mounting height.

Can I view on computer?


No Alice, you can't. The only thing you can do is put an SD memory card and put it in the unit and save screen shots for viewing on the computer. To update the firmware and programming, you load to an DC card on the computer and then insert it in the unit. The unit always remains on the boat.

I had the 798CSi, and now have the 998 HD.

Piranha 1. I want to mount it on a pontoon boat. Do I need a bracket for the transducer?


Yes, there should be a small rectangular mounting plate on the rear of one of your pontoons.
Mount your transducer on that plate. If you don't have a bracket you can order them from humminbird.
If you need it you can download a PDF file on transducer installation from the hummingbird website.

Where do I place transducers on my boat?


That will depend on what transducers you are using. For different types of transducers you will get mounting brackets. These are usually available from the supplier of the marine transducer.
For example in-hull or tansom mounts.

I have a Humminbird 708ci hd si fishfinder. I have issues with it turning off when moving at higher speeds on a little choppy water. I have the basic unit mount. What should I try to fix the issue?


Make sure all your wire and contacts are pressed in good, try taking your finder off the mount hold in your hand while going fast, see if it still goes off, if it does you might have a bad fish finder, or transducer is hitting hull or loose wire some where.

Hi I live in NZ and have a Humminbird 383c GPS Chartplottter which was purchased in the US. approx 2 years ago.It has a transom mounted transducer which I mounted in a piece of plastic pipe, epoxied in the...


Don,

We would recommend that you replace the transducer (if you want to keep the transducer inside the hull you may use the
XP 9 20 T with temperature and you can use epoxy to mount the transducer) If you want to keep in the compartment you have created you may want to just put water in the compartment with the transducer so its not shooting through the air.

If you have any other questions please email customer service at service@humminbird.com

Thank you,

Lowrance LMS522c transducer


Probably not. Usually the transducer is made specifically for the head unit it is designed for. More often than not, transducers are not interchangeable, particularly across brands. Also, for best results, you really want to install the transducer that came with your new lowrance. That will give you the best results and sonar clarity.

Hope that helps!

Lowrance x135 not functioning properly


Had the same issue with another brand. Turned out the transducer cable was picking up noise from other cables (power, trolling mtr. etc). Try moving the transducer cable away from any other cables. I put the cable in a 1/4 " plastic housing up to the point where it was above deck and it stopped all the strange stuff. Not sure about the temp issue??
