Do not know if you fixed the issue but I believe that you need to raise your transducer a bit. sounds like it is too low.

Hi Mark It is always tough to compare one unit against another unless you are well experienced with both. Each have there own issues and some are better for one person then another. The one thing most of us can vouch for is the Humminbird's customer service in the U.S. is far superior to Lowrance. W...

Basementguru Fish icons on your 2D screen may not always mean they are fish, there is a lot of junk in the water that shows up as fish. Setting up your unit properly is a must. Go to Doug's site, he has a 9 part seminar which will help you with set up and how to identify fish, it is worth a watch a ...

RivRunR Lexnard appears to be just a screen protector which I highly recommend. I have one on my 1197 and it protects the screen from scratches and it is much easier to clean the screen of water spots. They do sell hoods which I am not a fan of, some of the folks have built their own hoods, maybe so...

Crappiecaster That is a load of CRAP by the dealer, with that type of response I would not rust him. I purchased mine at discounted price with no problems. Now saying that you need to make sure it is a new unit in an unopened box. There are lot of discounters selling units at good prices, but you do...

Snakebyte922 As I understand HB will send you a refurbished unit, in the return mail, this isl a pretty good deal. But first have you check out your GPS connections for corrosion, etc and is it in the open for a clear view of the satellites. Do you know anyone with another GPS to try? The current ne...

I have not tried hooking up my HB unit to my TV, but I do hook up computer to the TV and run Humviewer which allows me to scroll through the recordings. At some point I may try this, thanks for the idea.

Charlie_B A lot of folks put these units on their kayaks and canoes. Yes, speed is not an issue. Speeds up to 5 mph is recommended for best results and canoes can easily go over that speed. I constantly make recordings at 0.5 mph and get good results. There are Sully Transducer Brackets, these sell ...

Crappiecaster You may want to wait until Humminbird announces their new technology later today, not sure but it is supposed to be a big improvement. The pricing overall is competitive with a lot of vendors, I purchased an 1197 from Poorfish which at the time was the best price I could find. With all...
