I refitted my Hunter
356 with all new B&G Zues2 nav' kit, and Raymarine autopilot
The B&G forward scan has never worked satisfactorily, it looses bottom lock at low depths (typically 2 m under the transducer) and becomes unreliable. (I am on the East Coast
of the Uk, and enjoy creek crawling and exploring, so am frequently looking for the channel, but there is also much shallow water
I have also now noted that on the occasions I am in deeper water
it is telling me I am about to encounter shallow water at ranges of about 30m.
I have changed the transducer, sonar hub, & plotter. I have tried switching off all other equipment
that could interfere. Tried all the settings, all updates etc etc.
The Q I have is: Does anyone have B&G Forward Scan that they can say reliably works please?
I don't want to get into debate of seamanship/other methods/other suppliers/etc please.
