    What is this line? Interference?

    I'm running a echomap Chirp 73sv on my kayak with no other electronics what-so-ever, so there shouldn't be any interference, right? During my last trip out, my downview showed this stripe at 2 feet the entire trip. Any ideas?



    This pic is from earlier in the summer; the line is at least fainter here.



    The transducer is mounted 2-3" below the bottom of my kayak, so there shouldn't be physical interference.

    Id contact customer support. I suspect you have a faulty transducer or defective mfd.

    The good part to this is, if its the transducer, they will send you a GT transducer to replace it.

    Called in today; they requested that I update to the latest firmware and see if that eliminates it; otherwise they will RMA my transducer for me. Darn, an excuse to go out fishing this weekend! ;)

    River or flowage? Could be stratified water/ algae. Some body of water or different?

    Different bodies of water. I got a GT52HW via RMA and all is good.
