humminbird 898c si combo issue
« on: August 22, 2017, 10:15:21 AM »
hi, all

My Humminbird headunit started acting or is it transducer? the unit turns on as it is should the 2 sonar down imaging side imaging looks fine. it shows things in the water. if I turn on switch fire max mode I cant see my lure. Also sporadically the head unit will display 2 feet of water even though i'm in deeper water (20feet). the screen image on 2d and down imaging is messed up .the side imaging seems to read fine. I just updated the software for the first time to the software to 7.670. to try and fix the issue. I also have done pulled all the wires out of the head unit did a restore to factory same issue

You might try turning jigging mode on .... This gives the 2D more priority in the transducer ping sequence.

Where is your transducer located and where are you fishing from .... are you using the 83Khz which will give you a wider sonar beam?
