My first time ever seeing C Maps. There are alot of symbols I have no idea what they are on lakes I'm pretty familiar with. Lines, dotted lines, stuff pretty pronounced on the map and I can't for the life of me figure it out. Any help is appreciated. I can email or text a screenshot if it would help. Thank you.

I think I figured it out sir. I turned off alot of the stuff that seemed for coastal fishing and restarted the unit. It's gone now. Another question I have is there any way to move the transducer to the bow on the vessel in active? It will be on the trolling motor but on the screen it's on the transom. Thank you

The map on their website is 10x better than the mapcard that my graph came with. Worthless, but true info there.

Go to the data sources (Pages/Settings/Network/Data Sources) Set your depth to Local on ea unit that has a transducer plugged into. Then Go to a sonar screen and make sure the source is set correctly on the menu make sure all your units are turned on....... Let me know if that corrects it.

Glad you got it figured out.

But for others, here's some FYI:

You can activate the cursor on a C-map feature or item and "most" time an INFO Option will display on the MENU bar which you can select and view chart information. It can be an item like an Artificial Reef. Or it can be a feature like Grass area or Timber area.

And once you determine the Name, "Artificial Reef (Bottom Compostion.Artificial Reef) you can select Menu->More Options->Chart Options->Categories, expand "Bottom Composition", then check or uncheck Artificial Reef.

For example Lake Fork has no hydrilla submerged grass, so it is named Weed/Kelp( Sea Bottom and Natural Features ) and I can uncheck it to not display on C-map.
Menu->More Options->Chart Options->Categories, expand Sea Bottom and Natural features and uncheck Week/Kelp.

Be careful expanding Categories and not unselect the entire Category unless that is your intent.
