CannonLink not Working with 1198
« on: August 12, 2011, 01:02:32 AM »
I have 2 Mag 20 DT hooked up through my CannonLink that previously worked on my 1197 but will not work on my 1198.  It gives me the check connections terminal etc... message.  I have tried to eliminated one or the other with the downriggers and no go.  any other things to try?

I have a 1197 with cannonlink and 4 mag 20's. I find the system to be very finicky. it will be working fine and drop for no reason,most of the time I can get it back by wiggling the cable connections on the down riggers or removing the terminator for a few seconds and replacing. the cable connections on the down riggers are a poor design,imo, I have been tempted to remove the factory plugs and hard wire them. it all does work well on occasion,but if you have to spin a down rigger to reset, it will loose connection. I improved it some,by using cable ties and tying the down rigger cables to the rod holder so they are less apt to move or disconnect. Good Luck.
