Is there a way to somewhat troubleshoot a problem? My console unit quit working. Well, the chart and mapping is still working. Had a new transducer put on it because of me guessing at the problem. First day at the lake after the replacement, still no sonar, or side/down imaging.

Did you select the proper transducer in the setup installation menu? Do you have the “network sonar” option turned ON? If yes, turn it off.

I went thru and selected every single transducer later on in the day after I quit fishing. The network sonar option is on, but that was set up by Slade at Fork.

I just assume that he had that selected on purpose. It quit working out of the blue. That's what has me so baffled.

Go to Pages/Settings/System/Factory Resets, Uncheck Waypoints Routes and Trails Do the reset. You will then have to check your overlays on screens and transducer installations, fishing mode ete ete. That will most likely fix it. If you need help PM me your phone number and I can walk you through on the phone.

That didn't work. I had already done that like 4 times, just didn't realize it by reading.

I haven't done an update since I got the boat new in 2017. My Dad doesn't have internet at his house, and that's where it's kept. So whatever version would be on a 2017 boat.

I had 2 gen 3 hds 12’s and the 2d sonar went out on both of them. Everything else worked great but the 2d just stopped scrolling... switched to Humminbird

Do the update you don't go all this time on your smartphone without an update. Marine electronics are constantly getting upgrades. fixes and optimization from software updates. If you called in to customer service the first thing they would ask you is what software update do you have. If you need help PM me and I can walk you through it.
