I will check my new 360 next time I am on the water.  Should be able to just shut down the 2D and see what happens.  Probably won't be this coming week as the storm moving into the gulf is going to give us a lot of rain.  Don

Just wondering, the SI systems use the 2D channel to adjust ping rate in the SI channels. SI without 2D works, but at the slowest rate in the system, which means very bad performance. What about the 360 system, does it work independent of 2D info or does it need depth from 2D to ping at optimal rate?

HB has not confirmed Rickard  ... but the forums indicate 2d is only for displaying 2d digital depth on the 360 image  ...

I don't have 360 (yet) to see if I can detect a difference  ...

That's the problem I'm running into, and the Ebay offerings seem a bit sketch.

Good to know, Jaak! I succeeded to have both transducers in the same ice hole at the end, but the installation was a bit messy with all cables etc. Would be much simple with only 360, thanks!

Thanks,

I haven't had time to get back to this since my last trip but thought about connecting a DVM directly to the battery to watch the voltage level as I accelerated.

The units are wired through the main fuse block after the power switch. I'd like to keep them after that switch, otherwise I'll have to pull them off the mount to power cycle them if they freeze again.

I thought that someone might have had a similar occurrence and possible tried a filter capacitor or voltage regulator on the power leads.
