This model has two versions, one with the GPS as an external piece, and one with the GPS mounted internally. If the location of the internal mounted GPS cannot get a clear shot at the satellites overhead, it will tell you it cannot get a GPS fix. If it says it is disconnected, you may have a problem with the internal GPS. There are external GPS pucks available for this unit. Here is a helpful website.

Works on down scan but not on sonar


Hummingbird systems have the ability to turn off pages so they will not be displayed. On your main menu look for the "views" tab. Scroll down to the sonar view page and see if it shows visible or hidden by that page. If it says hidden, select visible and you should be all set.

I would imagine it might have something to do with water turbulance? Do you have a sensor thats located at the bottom of the boat somewhere? In my grandpas boat, the sensor is at the rear bottom near the hole where you can drain the water, if your going very fast it doesnt work very well, slow or stopped and it works fine. If you have that type of sensor make sure whatever holds it is tight so the sensor cant move around.

either that or you got some funky wiring issue lol

Hello
I don't know whether you have made a factory reset to this device or not. If not, set it first and see whether it helps you. To make it factory settings:
[1] Press 'MENU""MENU" (down arrow to system setup) "ENT" (down arrow to RESET options/ ENT
[2] The unit asks if you want to reset all the options. Press [<---] to YES and then ENT. All options are reset, and the unit reverts back to map page at 4000 miles zoom range. Any recorded sonar logs of GPS data will be unchanged. OK.

How do u put the gps locations in the Eagle Fishmark 500c Color Fishfinder


Hi, no good news I'm sorry. It's a fish finder not a combo fish finder/gps so you are unable to enter co-ordinates. Sorry Phil.

Likely your DSM25 (that little box that connects the transducer to the display) will need to be rebuilt. The red LED is saying that there is an internal fault with the unit. You would need to send the unit in for repair through Raymarine (as there really is not anyone else who can do it), and they would have to replace the main circuit card in the box. I believe that they are charging either $150 or $175 to repair those now... but likely the only way you will get that one to work again.

Wont search for sattelites


Hi

Does your unit have an external aerial as shown in the pic, If so double check the connection from the aerial into back of the fishfinder, lube with water proof grease (Non-conductive)

You do not say whether it has worked before.

Also need to know where it is located on boat, it must have a view of sky overhead (If internal antennae)

Ext antennae must also be in view of sky, not under "solid" cover.

I think the transducer is down too low. Raise it up so that the center of it is in line with the bottom of the boat.

GPS/Fishfinder keeps dropping and restarting


Do a software upgrade to the CE33 unit and then a master reset by unplugging the power cable , then press and hold PWR and CLR buttoms while plugging back the power cable. Wait a couple of second while the software reloads and should run smooth....
NOTICE: All the previous data as routes, waypoints, etc that you had will be lost by the master reset.
