So yesterday I finally put my new Solix on the water. When I initially turned the unit on, the SI looked amazing (never had one before). Then after putting the boat on plane it just shows the screen below. I did an update today and restored factory defaults and the screen looked the same this evening. Any ideas as to what the issue is? [Linked Image]

That ducer comes out of the water and won’t read on plane. You have to be idling.

It looks like that picture is taken at 0.5 mph so the ducer should be submerged


What does the Di and 2d look like?

Im thinking the pic was taken when the boat was not on plane.

2d looked good, the di was registering bottom pretty good, but I was in a featureless area. The screen looked the same whether I was sitting still or going 2-4 mph. I also fished for awhile and restarted the unit a couple of times and it was still the same thing

I adjusted the contrast and range a few times also to make sure I wasnt missing something there too. Thank you for the responses.

Just an update, I spoke with Hummingbird Customer service yesterday and they have a new transducer headed my way. I was really surprised at how easy the call was, all they asked for was a couple of pictures of my setup. Hopefully I will get to try it this weekend for a minute or two.

Another Update, After talking to Hummingbird Customer Service,(which was awesome by the way, he was really helpful and can walk you through anything) they determined that my unit had a problem. I sent it in and just got it back yesterday, I hope to give it a go Sunday morning.
