When I open the Humminbird’s software my unit shows up for a few minutes and then disappears. This happens before any unit data can be downloaded. It shows up with the two upload and download arrows but when you click on them before the unit disconnects it says download data error.
I downloaded and older version of Humminbird software which it allows for enough time to get a unit profile and the disconnects from that too.
Any help would be great.
