    Default Garmin Striker 4 sonar issue

    Hey guys,

    Hopefully someone can help me solve my depth finder problem. Iíve got a striker 4 mounted on the bottom of my trolling motor with the mounting bracket and zip tie/strap. It reads temperature, time, and voltage just fine. It doesnít show the depth at all though. It scans and shows a quarter inch red line and a half inch red line periodically but thatís it. Iíve played with the gain, and frequency but havenít gotten anywhere. Iím fairly certain itís mounted level (Iíve even tilted it to see if that was the issue). My thought is it doesnít have a solid connection to my battery? The wire is sitting under the trolling motor ďUĒ connections on the battery and screwed down with a nut to hold them on the battery terminal. Hopefully someone wiser than me knows the solution.

    Thanks

    Is the depth on a manual setting deeper than actual water depth ...??

    (I assume you are testing on the water) ...

    Testing on the river, correct. Depths range from 0-35/40 feet

    Itís on auto setting but I did go through and try adjusting manual depth to no avail.

    Thanks

    Not sure if the 4 has it, but on my bigger Striker units you have to go in the settings and select which transducer you have. Maybe run through that and double check that you have the right one selected.
