    That is crazy! I can understand that the mapping might now work properly but the FF should definitely work. When playing around with it I have used my Garmin in my house in a bucket (transducer in a...

    Your case seems quite interesting. In the time that the picture quality changed were there any changes in water conditions (depth, temperature, clarity, algae, etc)? I am wondering if the change in...

    Love updating my Garmin on the water

    I was out fishing on Thursday and I decided to take a break and use Active Captain to update my 106SV. Failed the first time when I turned the phone off before it was done. Second time I waited until...

    It could also be a wiring problem to the units. If there is a bad connection, partially blown fuse, or something similar you may be dropping voltage between the battery and the unit.

    I think the question is whether he can connect an NMEA2000 network to one of the Echomaps and then share the heading info from that unit to a second unit that is connected by the Ethernet network. I...

    I think there is always some confusion on the split collar. I believe it is used because it is anticipated that the transducer cable may be routed a long way the split collar allows the cable to be...

    Also make sure that any card you use is formatted as FAT32. It likely is formatted that way if you are using a PC. I am not sure what the default is for a Mac.

    I think there are a lot of great sponsors and no bad choices. As a point of interest though, I bought my 106SV from Luke and I was happy with the price and the service.

    Great data! I have a 106sv and I would kill an 18AH battery after about 9 hours. That is consistent with your 102sv draw which is nice to see. I went nuts and got a 30AH battery for my 106sv. I like...

    I have a Hobie outback with a 106SV and a Steadycast connected by NMEA 2000 and I love it. I mount the FF on the front hatch. Sometimes I wish I had just bought the 126SV.

    I would check to see if the voltage is good or jumping all over or just low, then I would check the connections of the transducer to the unit and the unit to the cradle.

    I have a 106sv and I think they are about 26W. At 20V you would expect to draw about 1.25A thus 4H makes sense. 4Hx1.25A = 5AH.

    To first order you should only be drawing 1A at 18V (if this is for a 93SV plus). If that is the case you should be getting close to 6 hours. Now, the 18W number is based on some kind of conditions....

    What MonteSS says is correct but the power draw for a 93SV is 18W according to the specs at the Garmin site ( https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/592963#specs ). Power is voltage times current. As the...
