I installed my Active target middle of March, running it on hds live. My question is there a way to sync directional I-con
at the top right corner of the screen. It never seems to be pointing the same direction as my Trolling motor. Iā€™m using the shaft mount option on my Ultrex.
Ca ca can a man get a little help. Please, thanks.

There is a position synchronization procedure when using a Ghost trolling motor. (The Ghost can use the NMEA network to send it's angular position to the Live/Carbon/Elite FS MFD, which use it to correctly display the icon you're asking about.) I'm not aware of this being possible with the Ultrex because the Carbon/Live/Elite FS have no way of knowing the angular position of the Ultrex. Depending on the degrees of angular error, you may be able to "offset" the position of the transducer as bolted onto the Ultrex to get a more accurate display of the icon. Obviously, there's a limit to this as the transducer must be mounted in a position that doesn't have interference from the mount when the trolling motor is retracted from the water.
