Specifically or in general? Now single system depth finders are pretty rare as you know have GPS and Fish Finder properties and also plotters that will automatically steer the boat to destination. I have a Humminbird 998 with Side Imaging and all in HD. Side Imaging gives a 3D image of the bottom structure and objects.

SOURCE: 4150sx finder erratic depth

I had the same problem last time I was out in shallow water (in less than 2 metres of water) and I suspect that the problem was weed wrapped around the transducer but won't know for sure until I take it out on the water again. I had another problem re water temp which I'll enter separately.

SOURCE: wire on depth finder has been piched, can tou

Yes, you can. I have done it several times. Keep the separated wires fairly short. You can pick the braided (shield) wire apart with a pin or such.

SOURCE: My depth finder loses its depth reading at about

You need to set the transducer lower. When at speed, the hull of the ship raises up out of the water and hence your transducer is probably not deep enough at these times to give a proper reading.

U turn on depth finder. shows correct depth say 20 ft. then next u know showing 350ft. whats up with this?

Most depth finders have auto range and manual range. In auto range the transducer sounds the bottom and automaticly will switch the range. If the range is set to manual then its probably picking up the bottom upon start-up and going back to your manual range setting. I'd start there..
Good luck Aloha

Lowrance depth finder missing adapter cable

I own a 1995 Four Winns and what you need is a Lowrance LSM-1 depth finder unit. It accepts the two pin lead from the transducer and send the depth reading to the dashboard display via the 6-pin connector. There is also a three wire harness (red/blk/wht) that connects to a power supply.

The reason I know all this is my depth finder fried a couple years ago so I removed the Lowrance LSM-1 from the boat in order to find a replacement. Unfortunately, this was an OEM part that is not available from Four Winns or any aftermarket source. Probably your best bet is to look in a boat salvage yard or purchase an aftermarket depth finder.

Can not get off simulate

Assuming you're talking about a Depth Finder or a GPS... if it's depth finder, I had a similar problem on a Humminbird Depth Finder... the issue was holding down the power button too long. If you push it long enough for the system to light up and let go, it should solve the problem. Holding it down longer takes it into Simulation. Hope that helps.

Bought a 1995 Four Winns boat inthe dash it has a lowrance dept finder. under dash i see a 6pin male round connector & 2 pin round male hareness is there a harness i need to connect the 2 or what would...

Hi- I have a 1996 Four winns boat with the same problem. I believe we are missing an adapter cable which goes from the depth cable to the instrument panel. I have not been able to locate this cable yet. If I find it I will let you know and can you do the same for me if you locate one?
