Re: Depth sounder reading really shallow depths when itís much deeper

My transducer is brand new so I doubt that is the problem. I also had the same problem with our old transducer. So I think itís the ďsecond ping confusionĒ thing as described above. Will have to try and get onto Raymarine to understand whatís going on

Re: Depth sounder reading really shallow depths when itís much deeper

probably totally unrelated but when I first got the boat I was sailing in what seemed clearly deep water, confirmed by charts, the depth sounder suddenly started showing not much water. I found out the scale setting was wrong on the depth sounder and it couldn't make sense of it.

May not be your issue.

What is that ? I can only setup the offset, no other parameter unfortunately...



Benzy, I never had a problem with my transducer for 2 years (full time liveaboard) and am seeing this behaviour since I installed the iTC-5. Maybe not related but a bit strange. Did you experience the same problem w/o the iTC-5 ??

Bummer thought it might have been solved! Our transducer is brand new so donít think it is age related.
