1198 transducer not connected message
« on: June 05, 2017, 05:40:53 AM »
 This Saturday I took the boat out for the year, went to power up my 1198 (3 years old) and got "Transducer not connected" message. When I went to the status screen, it shows that basically nothing was connected including the GPS.
 I tried disconnecting/reconnecting cables, I took the cables out of the connector holder and plugged them in individually with no luck. When we pulled the boat out, the cables & transducer appear to be fine.
 Any suggestions? In searching on these forums, it appears I may have a bad transducer. If this is the case why wouldn't the GPS still work?

I would try to find someone else with a Humminbird unit that I could cross check on their boat.
**Looking for the one that makes it all worthwhile**
