My graph display looks real "grainy" with vertical lines running about half the depth on di and on the left side on si, and the 2d color is horrible, it's an 1198, I have a 958 up front linked. It's only GPS and 2d color and reads really clear. Just wondering if anybody know how to clear this up. Connections all seem good, transducer placement was done at ship's marine (I assume they know what they're doin)
Appreciate it

I've seen that statement before.

Post a picture of your Side Imaging transducer installation.

I have two 1198c SI units and mine work great since I installed them.

Typically if an installer is not familiar with the imaging technology they don't have a clue how to install it correctly.

I have seen pictures of imaging tranducers installed sideways, on a 45 degree angle on the corner of the hull and on a jackplate, and upside down. They were done by boat dealers.
An installation is only as good as the person that does it.

That is proof of installation ignorance when it comes to the imaging technology.

Refer to the Installation and Networking sticky topic on the Bass Boat Central Humminbird Forum. Look at the Skeeter installations.

Transducer Shield and Saver.

CALL them and state your application--boat and jackplate, they will make sure you get the right parts.
