View Full Version : Elite 5 Question

09-03-2013, 10:25 PM
When I get up over 20mph, the depth finder reads 1 or 2 feet even when I'm in the channel. When I come off plane, the depth reads correctly. The transducer is securely attached to the transom mount.

What causes this and what can I do to fix it?

I would say that there is turbulence caused by the bottom of the boat that is being picked up by the transducer and giving you a false shallow reading. You will need to move the ducer either to one side or the other or deeper in the water. This way you can get clean water under the ducer and get a lock on the bottom.

I'll try that. Thank you.

I guess I'm stuck with what I've got. I can't find another suitable location for the ducer.

You might wanna try changing the transducer frequency...just a thought.
