It was working fine yesterday it was running and I started the engine it turned off and started to reboot and froze like that the only way to turn it off is unplug it. I updated it about three weeks ago.

Fix your low power issue.

When the unit shuts down when you start the outboard, that means you do not have enough battery capacity to do both at the same time or you have too much resistance in the wiring to support the unit when the starter is engaged.

Did you extend the unit power cord directly to the battery?
Is the battery fully charged and in good condition with clean and tight connections?

Wire it direct with Minimum of 14 Gauge Wire, Solder Connections and use a 3 amp blade style fuse at the Battery. this video explains powersupply to electronics more in detail

It's not a power issue it's a software thing I sent it back to humminbird I put my bow unit an 1158c di on the console it worked fine untill yesterday I did the update 7.53 it and now it has a different problem and now it has to go back to humminbird. I'm #%^*! Pissed. My lowrance hds 7 gen 3 works great and thank god I have it I will be selling all my humminbird equipment as soon as they mail back the units bummer part is the 360 imaging pole is going to leave holes in my boat.

Also I tried boath units hooked directly to a hot battery I never had any problems untill the new updates and boath units did the same thing on the console or the bow power supplys.

The 1158 powers on and when you hit exit to continue it says shutting down and powers off and powers back on doing the same thing over and over agin tried it on 3 different power sources it worked fine untill I updated to 7.53 I want a new update but there's not one seems stupid to have to send the unit back in.

Yep, that needs a trip back to the factory.

Mondays are their busiest day. Try again tomorrow. Ask for a return authorization mailing label.
