Helix 7 SI reading inconsistent depths
« on: April 18, 2017, 04:21:15 AM »
Got a new helix 7 SI. Swapped out and upgraded to XTM HDSI trolling motor transducer. Used it first time yesterday and worked great. Went out today for a few hours and after about an hour, got different depth readings going from 2 to 9, to 91, to 321, back to 2. All over. Then it appeared to work again right before I pulled boat out. Any ideas?

Erratic shallow water depth seems to be reported often in the forums right now  ...

The common consensus right now is to use SwitchFire Clear and reduce Sensitivity  ...
